Still Confused! 'Friends' Fans Can't Believe They Fell For The "Fat" Monica Joke All These Years!

Although Friends is fondly remembered for its many funny and iconic moments, some instances haven't aged well. The show often used "Fat Monica" as a source of comedic relief, with the character's weight being the butt of many jokes. However, by today's standards, "Fat Monica" was only slightly above average size and weight. Fans are now watching these episodes with a more critical mind, realizing that the depiction of Monica wasn't accurate or fair. The jokes about her weight were fat-shaming for cheap laughs. Overall, Monica didn't deserve to have her body made fun of for comedic purposes.
