Since the show started streaming on Netflix a couple of years ago, fans have found issues with the way it handles certain topics, namely its lack of diversity and its depiction of women and LGBT people.
And the character of Ross in particular has been criticised for many reasons — his dismissal of the importance of consent, casual anti-gay comments, and possessiveness over his relationships, to name a few.
Even the show's creators recently revealed there are certain scenes that make them feel uncomfortable to watch back.
But during a recent interview with the Guardian, Friends star David Schwimmer said he "doesn't care" about the backlash, explaining that he believes it comes from the show being taken out of the context of its time.
"That show was groundbreaking in its time for the way in which it handled so casually sex, protected sex, gay marriage and relationships," he said.
David went on to say that while he's the first to acknowledge when something is "inappropriate or insensitive", Friends should be watched from the point of view of "what it was trying to do at the time".
He also said he was aware of the show's lack of diversity at the time, and made a "conscious push" for them to hire more diverse actors.
It probably won't come as a surprise, then, that David doesn't think a reunion episode is on the cards, although he'd love to do a chat show-esque reunion with his castmates.
"I think everyone feels the same," he told the Guardian. "Why mess with what felt like the right way to end the series?"
