According to a statement, the show will simply be called Velma, and it will be an adult animated comedy.

HBO Max

"Velma is an adult animated comedy series telling the origin story of Velma Dinkley, the unsung and underappreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang," the statement said. "An original and humorous spin that unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America's most beloved mystery solvers."

Of course, there was quite the reaction to the news online, something that Mindy herself was clearly taken aback by!

But one person didn't seem too pleased about the announcement, writing, "Starring Mindy Kaling?" in a since-deleted tweet along with this GIF from The Office...

Well, Mindy saw the the tweet and decided to respond for herself. And, oh boy, did she just pull off the most casual flex/biggest burn of all time?

"I wrote the episode of The Office this gif is from" has to be the best response to any tweet ever.
