Mindy Kaling Owns Troll Who Used GIF of ‘Office’ Episode

In true “Office” fashion, Mindy Kaling had the last laugh when a Twitter user tried to troll her while expressing his dislike for her involvement in HBO Max’s new “Scooby Doo” series.

“Starring Mindy Kaling?” the troll wrote in response to news of the project — an adult live action animated prequel focused on Velma Dinkley, who Kaling will voice. Trying to be clever about his feelings, he added a popular gif from “The Office” that shows Michael Scott yelling “NOOOO.”

But he apparently wasn’t clever enough, and he definitely didn’t have enough knowledge of the hit sitcom. Because Kaling quickly turned the tables on him, putting his tweet on blast by replying “I wrote the episode of The Office this gif is from.”

What a perfect mic drop.

One legend has it that she would put on extra emeralds before entering particularly difficult meetings with her generals.

The other tale involves an Indian diamond and a Russian lover. Grigory Orlov helped bring down Catherine’s husband and make her Queen (Catherine never much liked her husband Peter anyway) and the two then began a long
