Padma Lakshmi Calls Out The New Yorker For Priyanka Chopra Mix-Up

White folks have historically been on the wrong end of knowing which celebrity of color is which and often find themselves in the throes of embarrassment for their utter ignorance.

If you’re keeping score at home, mark another hash on the away team.

Yesterday, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi took to Instagram to call out The New Yorker magazine for mistaking her for actress Priyanka Chopra.

“New York Daily News”, well played, Padma!
