A “whole generation,” according to Jennifer Aniston now finds “Friends” offensive – Deets inside

Jennifer Aniston is apparently thinking about how “Friends” feels out of date right now.


When the subject came up, the actress was promoting her most recent Netflix movie, “Murder Mystery 2,” which also stars Adam Sandler. Aniston told AFP in Paris that “Comedy has evolved, movies have evolved,” according to Yahoo.

“Now it’s a little tricky because you have to be very careful, which makes it really hard for comedians, because the beauty of comedy is that we make fun of ourselves, make fun of life,” Aniston said. She also discussed how much society has evolved since “Friends” first aired in 1994.

“There’s a whole generation of people, kids, who are now going back to episodes of ‘Friends’ and find them offensive,” Aniston said. “There were things that were never intentional and others… well, we should have thought it through – but I don’t think there was a sensitivity like there is now.”


The show’s lack of diversity has long been a hot topic. Series co-creator Marta Kauffman expressed remorse about it last year.

“Admitting and accepting guilt is not easy,” Kaufman told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s painful looking at yourself in the mirror. I’m embarrassed that I didn’t know better 25 years ago.”

The Adam Sandler comedy-thriller Murder Mystery 2 is Jennifer Aniston’s most recent Netflix release, which she has been promoting.
