Ah yes, microaggressions are still alive and well in 2019.

For those who don't know, a microaggression is:

"a statement, action, or incident regarded as an instance of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group such as a racial or ethnic minority."

A common microaggression many people of color face at some point?

The assertion that all people that share their race or ethnicity look alike.

You likely know author, actress, model, television host and executive producer Padma Lakshmi best as the host of Top Chef, a competitive cooking show between professional chefs.

Our hearts practically stop whenever she says:

"Please, pack your knives."

This is Priyanka Chopraβ€”actress, singer, film producer, winner of the Miss World 2000 pageant, star of Quantico, Baywatch, Isn't It Romantic? and wife to Nick Jonas.

It appears The New Yorker cannot tell the difference between the two women.

When they were promoting Padma Lakshmi for their "Celebrity Cartoon Takeover," they tagged Priyanka Chopra in the post.

Giphy

The magazine eventually took down the post, but not before Padma screen-shotted the mistake.

And absolutely roasted them.

The roast she threw in was perfect.

"Thank you to the illustrious "@nydailynews" for the shoutout πŸ˜‰ I know to some we all look alike, but πŸ€·πŸΎβ™€οΈ... #desilife #justindianthings"

Mixing up The New Yorker with the New York Daily News?

Genius.





Chopra has not yet commented on the mix-up herself, but Lakshmi's fans are all cringing with her.





Lakshmi has retweeted some of the comments she found the funniest.


In general, Lakshmi produces some really amazing content on her page.



So for more excellent roasts, head over to her page and give her a follow.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
