When Mindy, 35, was with a New York Times reporter at the Trump SoHo hotel in New York earlier this month, a man reportedly said to her while tipsy, "Congratulations on your Nobel Prize." He also "expressed wonder at how well she recovered from Taliban gunshots."
Two years ago, Malala was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan for insisting that girls have the right to an education. Her activism efforts have inspired the world.
Mindy was reportedly left speechless after the mix-up. She later said to the reporter, "Did he really think I’m Malala?" She got a kick out of the situation and further questioned, "And that if I were, I'd be at the Boom Boom Room?”
