Rashida 1, Reporter 0.

Rashida Jones walked the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet on Sunday night and had to clap back at a reporter who complimented her on her "tan."

TNT correspondent Danielle Demski greeted the Parks and Recreation actress on the red carpet by complimenting her dress and her glowing skin. "You look amazing — gorgeous!" Demski began. "You look like you've just come off an island or something. You're very tan, very tropical."

The Black and Jewish star, whose father is music icon Quincy Jones, accepted the "compliment" with a laugh, but couldn't help but give the correspondent a bit of side eye. "I mean, you know, I'm ethnic."

Demski laughed off Jones's response and said to the camera, "It's just being ethnic. That's what it is."
