Friends, the iconic 90’s TV series, has become the latest thing to trigger millennials after it was recently added to Netflix – for body shaming, and homophobia…Seriously.

The series, which ended in 2004 when many of these whingers were still in nappies, has been slammed for not conforming to modern progressive standards which plague modern, politically correct TV.
Snowflakes claim the show is “homophobic” for its jokes about Ross’ ex-wife, who in the show raised a child with another woman.
Rewatching Friends on Netflix and damn! Never realised just how annoying and homophobic Ross was with stuff like this! Did always love Carol and Susan though, should have known 😅🏳️🌈 https://t.co/J3mrO7Uexx

The irony is, back in the 90’s, showing lesbians raising kids together on mainstream TV WAS PROGRESSIVE for its time, especially for American audiences.

Millennials also kicked off at the handling of a storyline involving Chandler’s uncomfortable relationship with his dad, a transgendered Las Vegas drag queen, which they slammed as “transphobic”.
i hate that throughout friends chandler's trans dad continued to be a laughing stock, they always made fun of carol being a lesbian, and they always made fat jokes about monica. but what can you expect from a sitcom based in the 1990s??

What I’ve learned from Friends being added to Netflix: the homophobic and transphobic jokes age it SO BADLY. Same goes for Sex and the City. Uncomfortable in parts.

The world’s gone mad. Westmonster never thought we’d see the day where a TV show like Friends was seen as ‘problematic’. Maybe people will have to find a ‘safe space’ while the show airs on Netflix.
