Mindy Kaling sticks to her comments in a game story that was published today in the journal Elle and in which she reported that she was one of The Office's co-author producers Elle published later this month in the November issue of the magazine, referred to a time at the beginning of the program in which Kaling announced that she had been told that Emmy was organizing the television academy that "there were too many producers on The Office who wanted to delete them from the list. She, the only colored woman on the team, would not qualify for an Emmy like the rest of the workforce. "
