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.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
