SNOWFLAKE millennials watching Friends on Netflix think the show is “transphobic,” “homophobic” and “sexist.”
NBC’s smash-hit 90s sitcom, which made superstars out of Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer and ran from 1994-2004 was recently added to Netflix UK.
The show was aired on Channel 4 in the UK and was one of the biggest shows of the nineties and early noughties gaining millions of fans in the US and the UK younger millennials seeing the show for the first time are being shocked by actual comedy that isn’t PC.
Viewers in the UK found some of the show’s storylines “offensive: and some are needing their safe spaces as they feel “uncomfortable”.
They branded Ross (David Schwimmer) a sexist homophobe because he asked if the new male nanny Rachel (Jennifer Anniston) had hired was Gay
Chandler’s (Mathew Perry) relationship with his father, who is a crossdresser, is apparently “Transphobic”
They are offended by the hilarious “Fat-Monica” (Courtney Cox) storyline due to “fat-shaming” because she was never allowed to forget she was once overweight.
One viewer even called out Joey (Matt LeBlanc) because he yelled, “Some girl ate Monica!”
Younger viewers even claimed that Rachel would have been FIRED for sexual harassment because she hires an assistant who isn’t qualified for the position because she wants to date him.
Friends pioneered LGBT storylines in the 90s, Pheobe married a gay man so he could acquire a US green card..
Chandler’s dad is a sassy Drag Queen…
…and Ross’ ex is a Lesbian who lives with her partner and share custody of Ross’ son, Ben.
It seems decent comedy is just too much for these doom-glooming Millenials.
