It was a huge news when Netflix announced to premiere the hit TV sitcom FRIENDS. However as it turned out, it was not a happy news for everyone.
The millennials; those born between 83-2000, found the show with issues like "homophobic" and "problematic" storylines.
The classic sitcom, one of the top rated TV sitcoms of all time was found to be extremely offensive to the millennials. But what were the things that actually outraged them?
1. THE FAT MONICA
So Courteney went through so much difficulty with the fat suit, just to be called an average sized woman? See this, is this an average size?
2. Chandler's constant Gay Remark and his father's Viva Las Gaygas.
Okay so people find it outrageous now? How? The guy who was portrayed gay gave us the meaning of what true love is. Mondler is, was, and will always be one of the cutest couples on the television.
3. Homophobic Ross
"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 😅🏳️🌈"

With only two non-white characters appearing in the entire show, Julie and Dr. Charlie Wheeler, the millennials found the show extremely racist.
5. Problematic Storyline.
With love interests like Monica and Richard, and with Young Ethan.
Okay, so why do I blame media?
90s were a time where jokes were treated as jokes. But now even a single letter that you say could offend anyone. Why?
Because the media has made your life so public. Well, you can't blame them to find our favorite TC show as offensive. The person to be blamed is "media" who kind of over-hypes everything.
