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.

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.

There's the medically induced coma which is caused by medical professionals to temporary cause a deep state of unconsciousness. Then there's the persistent vegetative state where the patient is the unaware of their surroundings and unable to movement.

However, after u/Pilot_Mosley asked Reddit, we're not so sure that every coma patient is completely unaware of their surroundings. Many people reported hearing their family or the nurses talking to them. Some said the had vivid dreams, only to learn those events actually happened.

Redditor Pilot_Mosley wanted to know what actually is going on in the unconscious mind and how it changed them after:

"Patients who woke up from a long coma, what's your story? How different were things?"
