Can you say that being canceled or wanting to be it’s almost an aspiration, a symbol that makes you – at least in your head – a countercultural icon, even though only a handful of people on the internet really care? The latest to speak on the subject is Mindy Kaling, who stated in ‘Good morning, America’ that ‘The office’, right now, could not be issued for being inappropriate.
It is somewhat strange that in a 2022 that applauds series like ‘It’s always sunny in Philadelphia’ (which is in its 16th season), ‘Rick and Morty’ or ‘Curb your enthusiasm’ someone believes that ‘The office’, more fashionable now than when it aired, could really offend someone. Secondly, Kaling, who played Kelly KapoorShe is also the creator of ‘The Mindy Project’, ‘Never have I ever’ or ‘The sexual life of university students’, so it is clear that she knows a lot about television.
Asked, “What would Kelly be doing now?” Kaling replied in an even more confusing manner: “I think she would have left Dunder Mifflin to become an influencer, and then it would probably be cancelled, almost immediately. In fact, most of the characters would be canceled now“It seems that this is only happening in your imagination, given that in 2020 ‘The office’ was the most watched series and nobody complained about anything. Is it possible that Kaling has more desire than chance of being cancelled?
The actress and creator also stated that He would not allow his children to see ‘The Office’ and that the writers with whom he is in contact talk about how now they could not make the series. “Tastes have changed, and honestly what offends people has changed a lot. I think that’s one of the reasons why the show is popular, because people feel like there’s no fear and nothing taboo.”
