'Instead Of Not Having Black People, It Does': Jennifer Aniston’s Fears Come True After Abbott Elementary Writer Blasts FRIENDS for Lack of Diversity

Quinta Brunson, the writer and executive producer of Abbott Elementary, called out Friends for its lack of diversity during her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live. She highlighted that while Friends was about a group of friends in New York City without any Black people, Abbott Elementary, a network sitcom set in Philadelphia, features Black actors. Her comments reflect Jennifer Aniston's concern that younger generations find Friends problematic due to its lack of sensitivity. Comedy is necessary, but writers must also be mindful of their impact.
