Stop getting Kumail Nanjiani confused with other people, okay?
The poor guy has had more than enough of it.
Last week, The Big Sick star posted the following tweet.
A day may come when I am not mistaken for another brown actor. But it is not this day.

Turns out he isn’t the only actor that this has been happening to. Soon, others were chipping in.
Every time I get recognized for you I think “man I wish it were true:)”

I have taken credit for both of your accolades in the last 2 weeks so I guess I owe you each a photo, half a beer, and an awkward extended hug

The most offensive thing here is the soul patch they gave me

I was congratulated on The Big Sick after a show & I went with it

Then Sarah Silverman waded in.
Clearly, Nanjiani approved.
I could def double down on my aggressively dumb joke here but I’m not going to because I’m… classy? No that can’t be it…

You can’t beat a good celebrity Twitter interaction.
