Friends star Lisa Kudrow spoke about the lack of diversity on the famed NBC sitcom, saying that the show's creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman had 'no business writing stories about the experiences of being a person of color' when considering their backgrounds.

The 59-year-old actress spoke about the topic in a story with The Daily Beast Wednesday, more than two years after she said the series lacked representation amid its 10 seasons.

Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on the comedy from 1994-2004, said Crane and Kauffman produced content that they knew about from their personal lives.

'I feel like it was a show created by two people who went to Brandeis and wrote about their lives after college,' Kudrow 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 problem that I was seeing was, "Where’s the apprenticeship?"'

Kudrow previously said in a May 2020 interview with the Sunday Times that if there were a current incarnation of the series, 'It would not be an all-white cast, for sure' adding that the show 'should be looked at as a time capsule, not for what they did wrong.'

Kauffman, 65, told the Los Angeles Times in June that she was focused on incorporating diversity into her work
