Alexander has previously discussed on The Breakfast Club the many ways in which Friends was a white reboot of Living Single, not the least of which is the fact that Friends was the working title for Living Single while it was in development.

“The original name for Living Single was My Girls, but it didn’t test well so they came up with some other names,” she told The Breakfast Club. “Living Single and Friends were some of the names presented. Obviously, they chose one and the other went to another show, also produced by Warner Bros.”

Schwimmer has not tweeted from his personal account since November 2019, so we are unaware whether or not he has a response for his white ass error, but we will keep you posted.
