Mindy Kaling has absolutely no time for a rude response to her upcoming role as Scooby Doo’s Velma in an animation.
The actress will be voicing the character in an upcoming origin series – with Variety stating it had been given a 10-episode order.
The publication reports she will also serve as executive producer for the Warner Brothers animation.
One unimpressed Twitter user wasn’t that thrilled about the announcement, replying to a tweet with the comment: ‘Starring Mindy Kaling?’
Getting their point across, they also added a gif of Steve Carrell as Michael Scott from The Office US, yelling: ‘No!’
Having none of it, Mindy – who wrote several instalments of the show as well as starring as Kelly Kapoor – hit back in true style.
Quoting the rude post, she added: ‘I wrote the episode of The Office this gif is from.’
Mics dropping all over the place.
Followers couldn’t get enough of her response, flooding the post with praise.
‘We love a fact that’s also a flex that’s also a drag. The range lol,’ one commented.
‘This is a quite spectucular beatdown that is as subtle and understated as it is savage. Extremely good work, thanks [sic],’ another agreed.
A fan posted: ‘This might be the best own I’ve seen on this website.’
‘This is excellent. watching The Office as we tweet,’ a Twitter user added.
Ignoring all the drama, Mindy also celebrated the news on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of the announcement with fans.
‘I’m so excited to be voicing this iconic character,’ she wrote. ‘Velma will struggle to navigate the pitfalls of high school, her budding sexuality, and a serial killer intent on murdering every popular kid in town.
‘Sounds epic, @charliegrandy! Can’t wait!’
The series will put Mystery Inc member Velma firmly in the spotlight, focusing on the detective.
As well as voicing the character – who was originally voiced by Nicole Jaffe in the 1960s cartoon – Mindy will be in the executive producer seat.
She will be joined by fellow executive producers Charlie Grandy, Howard Klein and Sam Register.’
