Kumail Nanjiani & Emily V. Gordon Reveal How They Handle Sexism & Racism

Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon are all smiles as they arrive at the 2018 Makers Conference on Tuesday afternoon (February 6) at NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles.

The married couple stopped by the conference to talk about their Oscar-nominated movie The Big Sick – which they co-wrote together and is based on their own real love story.

During their talk, Kumail and Emily chatted about how they deal with sexist and racist comments made against one another.

“One thing we’ve learned is if someone’s racist, I take that on, and if someone’s sexist he takes that on,” Emily said during the conference. “Because so often when you have to confront it yourself, it’s not only belittling, but it makes people sometimes dismiss you because you’re ‘crazy.’ But when you’re coming to the aid of your partner, that’s a different thing.”
