If you’ve been following the news, you surely remember how millennials complained that “Friends” was loaded with crude jokes and storylines. However, it is the past, and today’s young people are still making similar remarks about “Seinfeld.”
The number of racist, sexist, and homophobic jokes in the venerable ’90s sitcom Seinfeld has apparently outraged millennials who are just watching it, demonstrating that some things simply don’t age well.
Bustle published a list of Seinfeld jokes that wouldn’t pass on current network TV. While they are absolutely correct, many people objected to picking on one of the most well-known sitcoms ever produced. There’s no doubt that, among many others, the Soup Nazi, the “Indian giver” joke, and the “joke” about Jerry and George dating today probably wouldn’t be written.
