Mindy Kaling: "I'm Not Republican"

Mindy Kaling is clarifying some misunderstanding about her political beliefs after a widely spread report which claimed she was Republican.

Kaling, 34, opens up after an article on Salon entitled "Republican Mindy Kaling Brings Gun-Rights Humor to Her Show" mistook a joke on "The Mindy Project" and a spoof section in her book as proof of personal political conservatism.

When a reporter wrote on twitter: "I didn't know Mindy Kaling is a Republican," Kaling responded: "I'm not, it is bewildering!"

Asked to set the record straight, Kaling wrote: "Yeah, it's like assuming Alec Baldwin has Jack Donaghy's politics or something. It is so weird and funny to me and my staff."

Openly liberal in real life, Baldwin played arch-conservative Donaghy on "30 Rock."

When a second reporter tweeted that the original story appeared to misunderstand a gag on "The Mindy Project," Kaling replied: "I'm glad you saw that too! None of it's true, but I kind don't want to entertain it cuz it's ridiculous."
