Yeah, you read that right. Over the weekend, it appears as if The New Yorker's Instagram account accidentally tagged Chopra in a photo of Lakshmi.
For context, the since-deleted post was meant to promote a story from the magazine's December issue, in which stars like Tavi Gevinson and Mindy Kaling chose their favorite cartoons from the publication. And while it featured Lakshmi's pick of a hot dog vendor saying his franks are "marinated in hot water for six hours," Chopra wasn't a part of the story.
Needless to say, the Top Chef host responded to the unfortunate gaffe via her own Instagram over the weekend. And, of course, had to do a little reciprocal mistagging of her own.
Taking the publication to task, Lakshmi took a screenshot of the tag and captioned it, "Thank you to the illustrious "@nydailynews" for the shoutout. I know to some we all look alike, but…," before adding a shrugging woman emoji. Not only that, but she also added the hashtags #DesiLife and #JustIndianThings to really get her point across.
That said, according to People, the New Yorker has yet to respond to a request for comment. As for Chopra, she also hasn't commented on the mix-up — instead just opting to post a photo with husband Nick Jonas over the weekend.
Either way, you can see Lakshmi's post for yourself, below.
