The lack of variety in classic 1990s sitcom friends has been mentioned many times, but when Sherri Shepherd did it at the time, it may have cost them a job. Shepherd's boyfriend Jawn Murray claims the actress who was in an episode of the hit show was not invited back because she talked about the whitewashed cast.
“Sherri was one of the few black faces at Friends. You, Aisha Tyler and Gabrielle Union, "Murray said in a recent interview with ABC News' Linsey Davis." And Sherri was with Friends at a time when you were sending out postcards to let people know, "Hey, I'm going to be watching TV. & # 39;
According to Murray, Shepherd sent a postcard with a photo of herself and the heading "Friends get a little color". The postcards went to people in Hollywood.
Murray continued: "Well, [Shepherd] also sent this postcard to [Friends Co-Creator] Marta [Kauffman] and she got the postcard, and [Shepherd] was never asked on the show again."
