Comedian Whitney Cummings said she was sent to human resources after she told an intern to have a “Merry Christmas.”

Cummings told late-night television host Conan O’Brien that she delivered the seasonal greeting as a formality.

“Bye guys, Merry Christmas,” she told the crew of a television show she was working on. “Like just a formality, what you would say, right?”

A few months later she received a television call from human resources.

“They’re like, ‘Hey, we need to talk to you. One of the interns is pissed off that you said ‘Merry Christmas,'” she told O’Brien.

Cumming said she was stunned that uttering a traditional seasonal phrase could get someone in trouble.

“In these times we’re in that could … trigger someone or offend them if it’s not their holiday,” O’Brien said. Watch the entire interview below:
