Mindy Kaling Defends Aziz Ansari On Instagram After People Criticized Her For Going To His Show


last year Aziz Ansari got accused of sexual misconduct (ontd post)

last night Mindy Kaling posted an instagram pic of a ticket to his recent stand up show with "Funniest shit ever" as the caption

comments were not kind and Mindy replied to some:

"it would be more cowardly to be his friend and not come to his defense when people disparage him in public."

"Obviously I don’t love responding to Instagram comments late on a Friday night but I’m a feminist and standing up for women is very important to me. I’m not rehabbing him [because] I think he did a fine job doing it himself."

[on someone unfollwing her over this] "I am sorry to hear that. I am a champion of women. I am also a champion of my friend and do not believe they are mutually exclusive."

"I definitely don't separate the art from the artist. His experience has shaped his art and he talked about [it] eloquently."
