Comedy

Govindan's comedy spans a wide range of media, from Twitter to TikTok to YouTube to, at least in the pre-COVID times, traditional standup. Her comedy is noteworthy for its social commentary, often satirizing white supremacy,[3], the patriarchy,[4], and other malign social forces.

Emily in Paris Prank

In series of tweets beginning in late 2020, Govindan jokingly claimed to be the creator of the comedy-drama streaming series Emily in Paris. This tweets satirized the show for its lack of diversity,[5] casual depiction of statutory rape,[6], and other offensive or questionable choices. She also expressed confusion at the show’s Golden Globe nominations, stating that she “made that show as a prank.”[7]

Several news outlets, including News Desk and PhilSTAR Life, took Govindan’s tweets at face value, citing them as evidence of dissent among Emily in Paris’s creators.[8] Govindan also received a press inquiry from a BBC correspondent asking to interview her about her role in and original plans for Emily in Paris.[9]
