‘Friends’ hits Netflix and majorly triggers snowflakes, who complain about ‘homophobic,’ ‘misogynistic’ jokes

The left has officially become the side that lacks a sense of humor.

The iconic sitcom “Friends” has arrived on Netflix, but the 1990s and early 2000s-era comedy now faces accusations of being problematic on multiple counts of political incorrectness.

One of the biggest issues for modern audiences is the show’s running gag that main character Monica was overweight when she was younger.

The joke prompted complaints about “fat-shaming.”

Other viewers said “Friends” was guilty of being homophobic and transphobic.

One plot line in the series revolves around Chandler’s father, who cheated on the main character’s mother with a pool boy.

In one episode, Chandler sees his father in drag in Las Vegas, which prompts greater tension between the two.

A contributor to the New Statesman wrote, “Chandler’s dehumanising contempt for his queer father, which mutates into a loathing of any kind of effeminacy or gender nonconformity, in himself or anyone else.”

The writer continued: “Plenty of people will tell you that this gay panic was ‘of its time’, but frankly that only makes it more sinister.”

In one episode, Ross reacts negatively to seeing his son Ben playing with a Barbie doll. Contemporary left-wingers haven’t taken kindly to such scenes.

Clearly, modern day liberalism ruins everything it touches–even comedy. Can nobody take a joke anymore?
