Krewella spoke with The Daily Show senior correspondent Hasan Minhaj for Billboard‘s coverage of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, discussing comedy, politics, Bollywood and cultural appropriation.
Fielding an question from a fan, Minhaj was asked about how comedians often seem to be held more accountable for their words than politicians.
He agreed with the sentiment, saying, “I don’t understand why people are going after us, we’re jus the social commentators. We should be going after members of congress and people who enact change where rubber meets the actual road.”
Later, Minhaj and Krewella’s Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf discussed their favorite Bollywood films, reminiscing over their childhood influences.
From there, conversation turned to cultural appropriation — something Minhaj argued he was fine with, so long as credit was given where due.
“I am so down with other people appreciating and seeing the great stuff that our culture has provided,” he said. “I just think you could CC and give credit to the culture that it’s taken from.”
