Mindy Kaling Says White Male Critics Are Being 'Unfair' to 'Ocean's 8'

‘Ocean’s 8’ star Mindy Kaling is speaking out about white male movie critics — saying they’ve been “unfair” to the latest all-female installment of the “Ocean’s” franchise.

“If I had to base my career on what white men wanted, I would be very unsuccessful,” Mindy told Yahoo News. “There is obviously an audience out there who want to watch things like [‘Oceans 8’] which I work on.’’

We know that’s right!

Co-star Cate Blanchett also took the media to task for some of the early reactions to the film.

“The conversation has to change and the media has a huge responsibility,” she said.
