Mindy Kaling does not care about fan backlash to her new series!
Last year, HBO announced the animated series “Velma.”
The “Scooby-Doo” animation will explore Velma Dinkley’s origin story.
However, Velma’s ethnicity has been changed for this series.
In “Velma,” Velma is portrayed as South Asian.
This resulted in a lot of fan backlash online.
Kaling addressed the controversy at the Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront Presentation on Wednesday.
“Hopefully you noticed my Velma is South Asian,” she told the audience.
She added, “If people freak out about that, I don’t care.”
