Kal Penn, who currently stars as Seth Wright on ABC’s “Designated Survivor” — and once worked in the Obama Administration — decided Tuesday to share some memories from his earliest days as an actor. They weren’t exactly heartwarming. The prolific tweeter — who raised more than $640,000 for Syrian refugees, after a Twitter user told him he didn’t belong in the country — took to social media to expose scripts he’d received as a young actor, full of cringe-inducing Indian and Middle Eastern stereotypes.
