Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani, an immigrant from Pakistan, had some strange words of advice to the graduates at Grinnell College in Iowa last Monday.
He told them, “So here’s another concrete piece of advice I can give you – have sex with an immigrant. We’re going through a tough time right now and it would just be really great for morale.”
Nanjiani, 39 graduated from Grinnell himself in 2001, after immigrating to the United States when he was 18 years old. He is from Karachi, Pakistan, and now stars in the HBO show, “Silicon Valley.”
He said when he first came to Grinnell, “I was a devout Muslim who had never romantically touched a girl… by the time I graduated I was basically a Rastafarian with a white American girlfriend and a philosophy degree.”
He told about marrying his girlfriend, Emily, then taking her home to meet his parents. And that’s when he gave the advice for everyone to go out and have sex with an immigrant.
