The co-creator of the popular TV series Friends didn’t understand why people slammed the show when it premiered, but today, embarrassed by the lack of variety, she donated $4 million.

Marta Kauffman, who created the series with David Crane about a group of friends in New York and premiered in 1994, says she now understands why people have criticized the series.

However, after 10 seasons and the final episode in 2004, the creator of Grace and Frankie for Netflix has changed her perspective and he feels bad about it because I’m not getting enough diversity and representation on the show.

The cast, which consists primarily of white and hegemonic actors and actresses (Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer), has been criticized on numerous occasions for the lack of diversity in its people, although this is the case New York.

In an interview with the LA Times, Kauffman said he gained a better understanding of systemic racism in the US, and with it the grievances about the comedy series, after the killing of George Floyd. Since announcing the $4 million donation because she was embarrassed by the lack of diversity, the Friends co-creator, available on HBO, said she’s received nothing but love and support from the public.
