Lisa Kudrow Says Friends Writers Had “No Business” Writing About People of Color

You don’t need to be a Friends expert to notice that the long-running sitcom is extremely white — so much so that co-creator Marta Kauffman donated millions to her alma mater Brandeis University’s African-American studies department. Money can’t change the past, but in a new interview with The Daily Beast, Lisa Kudrow opined that the show’s writers had “no business” writing about “being a person of color” in the show. “[Friends] was a show created by two people who went to Brandeis and wrote about their lives after college,” the real-life Phoebe Buffay said. “And for shows especially, when it’s going to be a comedy that’s character-driven, you write what you know. They have no business writing stories about the experiences of being a person of color. I think at that time, the big prob...

John Lennon’s Scathing 1971 Letter to Paul McCartney Up for Auction

John Lennon sure imagined a lot of things (sorry), but he probably couldn’t have guessed that a tiff with his former bandmate could one day be worth $30,000. An angry letter he wrote to his fellow ex-Beatle Paul McCartney in 1971 is currently being auctioned by Gotta Have Rock and Roll for a very pretty penny. As TMZ points out, in 1971 — when The Beatles had been broken up for about a year and were all established in their solo careers — McCartney gave a slightly unflattering interview with Melody Maker. In it, Macca discussed some of the business goings-on with The Beatles, implied that Let It Be was the first “bit of hype” the band experienced, and opined that he thought Lennon’s hit “Imagine” wasn’t political. Naturally, Lennon wasn’t pleased. “If you’re not th...

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: KIRILL KUDRYAVTSEV / Getty On Thursday, A Russian court sentenced WNBA star Brittney Griner to nine years in a penal colony after finding her guilty of bringing illegal drugs into Russia. We should all be angry. Injustice is injustice no matter what country it happens in and nine years of a small amount of cannabis oil is unjust. According to the New York Times, Griner’s conviction “leaves Ms. Griner’s fate subject to diplomatic negotiations between Russia and the United States.” In other words: Griner’s freedom is nothing more than a bargaining chip between two world powers. Related Stories In fact, some sources have said that Griner would have to be formally sentenced before any prisoner swap could even be possible. But conflicting reports make that ide...
