‘Friends’ Star Comes For Kanye West After He Posts That The Show’s ‘Not Funny’

“Friends” star Courteney Cox got everyone’s attention when she reacted to a since-deleted post from Kanye West in which the rapper shared on Instagram that the hit NBC show was “not funny.”

The 58-year-old actress shared a video on her social media Tuesday that showed her first rocking out to West’s 2008 “Heartless” as it appeared she was scrolling though her phone. Cox then zoomed into Kanye’s since-deleted post in which he claimed that he never tweeted that the show was “not funny,” but wished he had, Page Six reported in a piece published Wednesday.

“I actually didn’t write the tweet that said ‘Friends’ wasn’t funny either,’ but I wish I had,” the 45-year-old rapper shared in his post on Instagram, before basically deleting all his posts but one.

After Cox read what West said about “Friends,” she stopped rocking out, turned off the phone, and left it and the room behind.

She captioned her post, “I bet the old Kayne thought Friends was funny.”


The reference to the “Friends” tweet happened in 2020 during the presidential election when Courteney’s former co-star Jennifer Aniston endorsed Joe Biden for president over then-President Donald Trump, People magazine noted.

At the time, Aniston warned people about voting for West, who was also running for president.

“It’s not funny to vote for Kanye,” Aniston’s tweet read. “I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

Someone then made it look like West tweeted a dig at “Friends” in response, which in his recent Instagram post, he said he never did, but agreed with it.

Cox starred as Monica Geller, alongside Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer in the hit 90s sitcom. Kudrow herself recently made headlines when she said that the show had “no business writing” storylines about “being a person of color” in response to criticism that she show didn’t have many black people as part of the cast.

“Well, 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?’”
