We all know we live in a super sensitive society today. It’s come to the point where the freedom that comedy once had is being infringed upon in order to protect those who are easily offended. There are plenty of shows that were on TV back in the day that would not have been able to get away with certain things if they were on the air today. Here’s five times ‘FRIENDS’ would have been cancelled if it was still on the air today.

THE TIME PAOLO GROPED PHOEBE

(Season 1 - Episode 12)

 Yeah, this is the episode where Paolo’s getting the massage from Phoebe before straight up groping her ass and pulling a Harvey Weinstein with the full frontal flash. If only it was 2018, Phoebe would have been a #MeToo hero. She could have easily quit being a masseuse and lived off the clout.

THE TIME ROSS FOUND BEN PLAYING WITH A BARBIE

(Season 3 - Episode 4)

 If there was ever a moment in the show that would really upset the PC culture of today it would be this episode. Ross’s son would rather play with a Barbie over a GI Joe and Ross is freaking out. I can see the Op Ed’s on the Washington Post now, ‘ROSS GELLAR IS A BARBARIC HOMOPHOBE!’

ANY TIME JOEY SAYS ‘HOW YOU DOIN’

(All the Time)

 Feminists everywhere would be lined up outside the doors of Warner Bros to demand they kill off such a sexist and misogynistic character like Joey.

ANYTIME CHANDLER CALLS HIS DAD a ‘HE’

(All the Time)

 No, that’s not a typo. As we all know, Chandler’s dad is a trans woman now who headlines a gay burlesque show in Vegas. Chandler refers to him as a ‘he’ the whole show. I can only imagine the protests and outrage that would ensue today for the ‘incorrect’ use of a gender pronoun.

THE TIME JOEY GOT MADE FUN OF FOR WEARING A PURSE

(Season 5 - Episode 13)

 Joey finds great utility in a male purse that Rachel gives to him. Not only was he way ahead of his time in terms of hip-hop fashion, but the other guys constantly make fun of him and check his masculinity for it. I mean, Jesus. These are the moments that Social Justice Warriors pray for.
