An Instagram critic tried to get into a food fight with Mindy Kaling, but the actress wasn't having it.
On Wednesday, Dec. 21, "The Mindy Project" alum posted a photo from dinner at Pijja Palace, an Indian sports bar in Los Angeles. Images showed Mindy surrounded by pizza, pasta, wings and fried food. A few fans, though, said Mindy wasn't actually indulging in any of the photos.
"There is no eating in these pictures," an Instagram follower said, "just saying because it's kind of scary and I have been there."
Mindy saw the comment and clapped back, but did so rather nicely.
"I actually think this concern is sweet. But I swear this is not my issue. But thank you being kind!" she said.
Mindy's weight has long been a topic of discussion, as she's slimmed down her significantly since most of us first met on her "The Office" in 2005. In May 2022, she told "Today" that she eats in moderation but doesn't diet.
"I'm never going to stop being a foodie. I'm never going to be someone who can just have spinach and salmon every day. I just am really for the first time in my life, trying moderation, and I love it," she said.
The mother-of-two also enjoys exercise, which wasn't always the case.
"Sometimes I'll be like, 'Well, I have four different times today where I have 10 minutes so let's just walk instead of sitting down and checking Instagram,'" she said. "So instead of it being like one chunk of exercise in the beginning of the day or none at all, I'm now just deciding that I'm going to be a more active person all the time."
