/me slash command output is no longer italicized

Description

Posting using the `/me` slash command should result in a post in italics. It is currently (on v5.14 release branch) posting in light type, not italic. This is a regression; does not reproduce on prev.test.

Interestingly, if I open the edit modal on a /me post, it shows asterisk - text - asterisk, as though it should appear in italics. And if I copy that text from the edit modal, then post it in a separate post, it is indeed italic.

Not sure if there was some intentional change here?

QA Test Steps

1. Use the `/me` slash command to make a post, such as `/me testing`

Observed: `testing` posts in light type (similar to an ephemeral post)
Expected: `testing` posts in italic type, regular color/weight
