Mindy Kaling Sparked A Conversation On Twitter About White TV Siblings With Creepy Sexual Tension, And Now My Eyes Are Burning

I'll never get over THAT dinner table scene in Netflix's Elite.

On Monday, Mindy Kaling took to Twitter to point out a common theme she's noticed amongst TV siblings, specifically white brothers and sisters.

The multi-faceted actor and writer pointed out how "flirty" these characters tend to act towards each other, and tons of people immediately agreed.

With white families on tv, the brothers and sisters are always, like flirty with each other

In fact, fans even provided examples to back up Mindy's claim. Here are just some of the borderline incestuous TV siblings that have graced our screens throughout the years:

1. Casey and Derek from Life with Derek were one of the most popular examples...

this show would’ve caused permanent psychological damage if Disney didn’t cancel it when it did

3. Callie and Brandon from The Fosters:

Callie was technically their foster child but it was still weird b/c even when they finally adopted her, she & the bio son were still hella flirty
