    “Living Single” star Erika Alexander has joined the chorus of people calling out “Friends” star David Schwimmer for his suggestion that a “Friends” reboot should feature an “all-black” or “all-Asian” cast.“r u seriously telling me you’ve never heard of LivingSingle? We invented the template! Yr welcome bro,” Alexander wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.Her comments came after Schwimmer acknowledged in an interview with The Guardian that “Friends” wasn’t the most progressive show on race when it aired on NBC nearly three decades ago, and that its all-white cast looks even starker in a modern-day context. The actor suggested in the interview that a potential reboot of the show center on a non-white cast.Also Read: 'Friends': Where to Watch Sitcom Now That It's No Longer on NetflixThe problem, as Alexander and many others have pointed out, is that “Living Single” premiered a year before “Friends” and featured an all-black cast.

Television. In a 2018 interview, Alexander said “Friends” was actually one of the working titles for “Living Single.”“Obviously, they chose one and the other went to another show,” she said.Hey ⁦@DavidSchwimmer ⁦@FriendsTV⁩ – r u seriously telling me you’ve never heard of LivingSingle?
