Mindy Kaling says she doesn’t care about backlash against South Asian Velma in new Scooby-Doo spinoff

  • Mindy Kaling, executive producer of the animated Scooby-Doo spinoff “Velma,” addressed critics while giving audiences a first look at the series.
  • "Nobody ever complained about a talking dog solving mysteries so I don’t think they’ll be upset over a brown Velma," Kaling said.
