No, Chris Messina Doesn't Think He's Too Hot For Mindy Kaling, So Kindly Shut the Hell Up About It Already

Chris Messina was on HuffPost Live, which, from the looks of it, seems to be the very laziest and most awkward interview show in all of Internetdom. Basically, people tweet questions and then these people relay them live. Journalism!

After an initial inane “how could you do that to Mindy?” question (again, fine journalism), the host started talking about how weird it is that Chis Messina is TOTES HOTTER than Mindy Kaling, and did they, like have meetings to discuss how absolutely bizarre that is?

In my ideal version of this “interview,” Messina punches the internet in its face and burns down the HuffPo studio for pointlessly bringing up this well-worn misogyny. Of course, what he actually did was just shut the nonsense down quickly and gracefully, saying

I think Mindy Kaling’s beautiful. And why not have some handsome guys with her? And I agree — if it was a man’s show [this wouldn’t be an issue].

I guess that’s okay too.
