‘Friends’ creator donates $4 million to atone for her non-woke series

Marta Kauffman, creator of the popular 1990s sitcom Friends, has donated $4 million to her alma mater, Brandeis University, to establish an endowed professorship in the university’s Department of African and African American Studies.

The endowment, which will “support a distinguished scholar with a concentration in the study of the peoples and cultures of Africa and the African diaspora”, was given by Kauffman, who has publicly expressed guilt for only casting White actors in the sitcom’s lead roles.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Kauffman attributed her lack of black leads to her “internalization of the systemic racism that plagues our society.”

Brandeis University’s announcement of the endowment states that Kauffman was “deeply affected” by the murder of George Floyd in 2020, and the protests that followed.

Friends takes place in New York City and follows the lives of six characters.

The show has, however, featured co-stars of color such as Aisha Tyler, and one of the lead characters, Chandler Bing, has a transgender father.

Kauffman has also recently expressed regret for referring to Chandler’s father with the wrong pronouns.

In 2021, HBO Max released a Friends: The Reunion documentary.

The Los Angeles Times was quick to criticize the special, stating, “At a time when the television landscape is becoming increasingly diverse and inclusive, it’s uncomfortable – if not outright inappropriate – to raise a glass to a sitcom that was so blind to the multiculturalism of the world where it took place.”

Atonement for a sin no one knew about in the 90s….makes perfect sense.

Gee. Apologies for no tokens.

I honestly hope it was her last dime. But I know it wasn’t.

How much will she send me to compensate for having to watch that crap?

Even worse: Maude and Murphy Brown. Dear God, they were insipid.

Anything on daytime TV, period.

Mau-mauing the Flak Catchers? — in the 21st century they do it to themselves. Preemptive groveling perpetuates the cycle. We will only see more and more of this nonsense from these obvious white supremacist Karens
