‘Friends’ cast faces unwarranted criticism for remaining silent about Matthew Perry’s death

The death of Matthew Perry hit a lot of people really hard, and one of the main reasons for that is because everyone who was a fan of Friends – which is a lot considering it’s one of the most popular, popular and iconic sitcoms of all time – as if they knew him personally since he spent so much time with Chandler Bing.

Although the actor didn’t want his legacy to be defined by the role he played on the small screen for 10 years and over 200 episodes, he was smart and self-aware enough to know that Friends would always be the shadow that hung over his entire career. The six main actors not only worked together for a decade, but also remained close off-screen. Various social media posts from the sextet over the years showed them reuniting, spending time together and having fun.

So far, neither David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, or Lisa Kudrow have publicly commented on the death of their longtime friend and colleague, which in turn has opened the door for some of the less palatable characters on social media to take action to criticize her for not issuing a statement.
