HBO Max dropped Velma this week, a profane, adult origins tale about Velma (voiced by Mindy Kaling) that has turned the Internet against Kaling, particularly over a bad #MeToo joke. “It’s hard to imagine how it appeals to anyone other than people who are still fans of Louis C.K. To be honest, though, that also summarizes the show,” Kimberly Terasaki writes. (TheMarySue)
