Friends has been off the air since 2004, but still, the fanbase for the show won’t go away and won’t stop concocting theories about the cast and storylines. The most recent fan theory is about Ross and Monica and their sibling relationship.
Emily Heller, a writer and comedian, started this theory with a single tweet. She posted, “Just realized they HAD to make Monica & Ross brother and sister otherwise all the F•R•I•E•N•D•S would have stuck with Carol in the divorce.”
This one tweet sparked lots of controversy and other tweets. Needless to say, Friends fans are divided about this opinion. Fans took her theory as another way to hate on Ross, so there were lots of Ross defenders in her mentions. There were also lots of people debunking her theory.
Fans pointed out that Friends would never be because the reason they were all friends was because Ross and Monica were siblings.
Fans got into the nitty-gritty of why some of the friends would have stuck with Carol and some wouldn’t. What their motives would be to pick Carol over Ross or vice versa. It’s all very detailed and a little inane because this is a fictional show.
If anything this tweet awoke dormant Ross stans.
Heller cleared up the meaning behind her tweet and how it wasn’t anti-Ross, but more pro-Carol.
But one thing can be agreed upon, the way she spelled Friends.
If you don’t want your mentions filled, don’t tweet Friends theories, opinions or observances because they will be taken very literally and dissected.
