    Mindy Kaling Asked People To "Normalize Unmarried Women Wearing Rings" After Recent Engagement Rumors

    I'm fine.

    In case you missed it, Mindy Kaling caused, well, quite a hubbub when she was spotted wearing a ring on *that* finger earlier this week.

    Naturally, the internet was full of a *ton* of speculation as to whether this meant Mindy got married.

    However, if you were one of these people, then I'm afraid I have some news.

    In fact, plenty of people took to the replies to say that they did the same thing:

    @mindykaling I bought a pizza ring at the Brooklyn Museum gift shop and it fits best on that finger. I figured it was because the longest and most satisfying relationship I’ve had is with pizza.

    @mindykaling I wear a silver moon ring on that finger and this guy at the bar told me if I’m not married I shouldn’t wear it so guys will buy me free drinks... I can buy my own drink and if you’re too stupid to notice that it’s a moon that’s on you
