"Last year, I was working on a TV show, got in trouble with human resources for saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to an intern,” Cummings told Conan O'Brien, who asked if it was true. "That’s true," she responded. "I was leaving … I was like, ‘Bye, guys. Merry Christmas.’ Like just a formality, what you would say,” Cummings explained. “I come back, like, June 6th. HR calls me and they’re like, ‘Hey, we need to talk to you. One of the interns is pissed off that you said ‘Merry Christmas.'” Cummings didn't name the show, but she was co-showrunner of Roseanne in 2017/early 2018.
