Hollywood claims to be tolerant and open-minded.
Yet people who do not conform to the far-left monoculture run the risk of getting ostracized.
Now a liberal Hollywood actress is in hot water for liking one social media post.
Leftists are notorious for eating their own.
If anyone on the left steps out of line, he or she could get “canceled” in a heartbeat.
Actress and writer Mindy Kaling, who’s best known for playing Kelly Kapoor on The Office, had a brush with cancellation after she “liked” a post from Harry Potter author JK Rowling.
Rowling fell out of favor with the left after she spoke out against the radical transgender movement and said that men cannot become women, and vice versa.
Ever since then, she has been hated by large pockets of the left.
She was even encouraged not to attend a Harry Potter 25th anniversary event.
The incident started when a deranged leftist tweeted at Rowling, “How do you sleep at night knowing you’ve lost a whole audience from buying your books?”
Rowling cheekily responded, “I read my most recent royalty cheques and find the pain goes away pretty quickly.”
Kaling’s reply drew a like from Rowling, which set off a tinder box on the left.

One commenter said, “Mindy Kaling is a terf in case you needed another reason to dislike her,” one person scolded.
The term “TERF” stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminist, which is a derogatory term used by far-left transgender activists.
Rowling first got into trouble three years ago when she tweeted, “Dress however you please. Call yourself whatever you like. Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill.”
“I Stand with Maya” was in regard to a woman named Maya Forstater who was fired from a left-wing think tank after proclaiming that there were only two sexes.
It’s truly mind-boggling that that has become a controversial statement.
The insane radicals have attempted to make Rowling radioactive, and anyone who likes her by proxy.
That’s why Kaling is suddenly in the crosshairs, simply for liking a tweet.
Another trans activist wrote, “No one should have to say this but if your feminism doesn’t include trans women it isn’t feminism at all supporting [J.K. Rowling] in any capacity and being a feminist are mutually exclusiv…super disappointing [Mindy Kaling].”
Leftists have gone nuts, and they’re dragging a sizable chunk of the country with them.
The ire over Kaling’s “like” shows that being “woke” is only temporary.
Kaling got glowing press coverage for freezing her eggs and having children as a single mother.
She explained, “I waited until I had the means and that made all the difference…The choice to have a child—by yourself, on your own terms — it was the best part of my life.”
Kaling is allegedly worth $35 million.
