A third suggested that “not everything needs an adult themed adaptation,” while another joked: “How about we Scooby Don’t.”

Others called Mindy and HBO Max “monsters” for making this newholy cringeof a show, saying it’s completely “gross” and “unnecessary.”

“An original and humorous spin that unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers, executive producer Mindy Kaling will voice the titular character.”

The show was first announced last February, and Mindy shut down some of the racist comments that had been aimed at her and the series for her attachment as Velma a few months later.

During a July 2021 appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, she told the host: “When it was announced that I was going to do the voice of Velma, people were very supportive and happy on Twitter.

“And so I felt great.

“Then it was announced a month ago that the Velma character would be reimagined as South Asian. And people were not happy.

“There was a lot of, mögen, ‘So not Velma!’ Those kind of tweets. ‘Not the classic Velma that I’m always thinking about.’”

She mentioned these types of reactions during her Upfront appearance on Wednesday, telling everyone that if a dog, Scooby Doo, can help solve crimes, then Velma “can be brown.”
