Mindy Kaling Says She 'Misspoke' Regarding Abortion Storylines on a Sitcom - Watch Here!
Mindy Kaling shows off her casual side while enjoying her Friday afternoon (September 12) in New York City.
That same day, the 35-year-old The Mindy Project star clarified what she meant when she said that a serious topic like abortion had no place on a sitcom.
“When I made the comment, I think that I misspoke… I said that I thought it would demean the issue of abortion to talk about it on sitcom,” Mindy told HuffPost Live.
She continued to say: “What I should’ve said was my sitcom… Many incredible shows have dealt with it in a way that I really admire. Roseanne is one of them… I should’ve said for now… [Abortion] doesn’t strike me, and I don’t think this is controversial, as the funniest of areas and I run a comedy show. And also, my show… is about a workplace. Our show from the get-go hasn’t made its centerpiece to focus on political issues.”
