The six-time Emmy nominee was a writer on the American version of "The Office" since its start, and also portrayed Dunder Mifflin employee Kelly Kapoor. But according to her interview with Elle, she was the only member of the production team who had to fill out forms proving she should be included as a producer for the Emmy consideration — and that all of her co-writers and producers on the show just happened to be white men.

“They made me, not any of the other producers, fill out a whole form and write an essay about all my contributions as a writer and a producer,” Kaling tells the magazine. “I had to get letters from all the other male, white producers saying that I had contributed, when my actual record stood for itself.”

The Television Academy issued a response, stating filling out the forms was due to a rule at the time that was introduced because of too many people wanting credit for something they didn't participate in on a day-to-day basis.

“No one person was singled out," the Academy said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. "Every performer/producer and writer/producer was asked to justify their producer credits. We no longer require this justification from performer/producers and writer/producers, but we do continue to vet consulting producer credits with the PGA to ensure those credited are actually functioning in the role as a producer.”

It didn't take long for Kaling to issue a response to the Academy's statement, issuing a series of tweets insisting that the statement "doesn't make any sense" and that she "*was* singled out."

Kaling's "Office" co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are behind her 100 per cent, and made their opinion clear during a recent appearance on BuzzFeed News "AM to DM" YouTube talk show.
