David Schwimmer’s ‘Racist’ comments do not go well

2 min read

David Schwimmer (53) suggests that there should be a reboot of his 90s show, but with a ‘completely black cast’ and that will cost him dearly.

“I am the first to say it when something is inappropriate or tactless”

In the 90s and early 2000s David experienced enormous success with Friends, but nowadays the show is sometimes attacked for the absence of diversity. This is not good for him and that is why he is defending himself during an interview with The Guardian. “The series was groundbreaking at the time. Certainly in terms of sex, contraceptives, same-sex marriage and relationships,” David tells the newspaper. “You have to watch it from the time the series was made.”

“I am the first to say it when something is inappropriate or tactless,” David continues. “At that time I was already very concerned with social issues and equality.” The Friends actor also suggests giving the show a reboot, but this time with a “completely black cast.” This goes down the wrong way with actress Erika Alexander, who was also popular in the 90s in a show in which African-American characters are central. “Have you never heard of the Living Single program?” She asks on Twitter. “We were the blueprint for your series. You’re welcome.”
