Mindy Kaling’s Rep Says The Actress Did NOT Know About Her Brother’s Race Scandal — Apparently The Two Have Been Estranged For Years

Everything about this scandal is so strange!

Days after it was revealed that Mindy Kaling‘s brother, Vijay Chokal-Ingam, pretended to be black so he could get into med school, the actress’ rep has come forward to say that Kaling had no prior knowledge of Vijay’s bizarre plan.

Mindy’s denial is in direct conflict with Chokal-Ingam’s claim that the comedienne expressed shame over her estranged brother’s book which details his life as an Indian-American posing as a black man.

The Mindy Project star’s rep stated:

“Mindy has been estranged from her brother for years. She was not aware of his decision to apply to medical school under a different name and race.”

Sounds believable to us. If the siblings haven’t been speaking for years, it’s totally plausible that the actress wasn’t aware of her brother’s crazy and alternate identity.

So, do YOU believe Kaling wasn’t aware of her brother’s plan?
