Good morning. How are you today? As for me, I’ve spent the past five minutes being horrified over something Kylie Jenner said in a recent video with Elle U.K. magazine. It might be the most horrifying thing I’ve ever heard anyone say in my life. It only took three words, and I was curled up in a ball on the floor rocking back and forth bracing for the end of days. Those three words were “What is that?” when asked who her favorite Friends character is.

Of course, after some unintelligible words from someone behind the camera, there is a cut before Kylie says, “I know what Friends is. I mean, I don’t watch Friends. But I know what it is.” No you don’t. You just asked “What is that?” while making a face like you’d never heard of the show before.

And to that I ask: HOW? H-O-W. How do you not know what Friends is? Are teenagers these days really so caught up in texting each other upside down smiley face emojis (the one that best describes Kylie, according to her) that they’ve never even channel surfed on an uneventful afternoon and ended up watching three hours of Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe getting up to shenanigans?

Friends is just one of those pop culture staples, kind of like Star Wars, that you just know about, whether you’ve actually sat down and watched it or not. (Although how you could avoid sitting down and watching it when it’s on 24/7 is beyond me.) You know the character names. You know major plot details. I don’t see how you could avoid knowing unless you literally live under a rock. It’s just out there being talked about.

Honestly, I weep for the future of humanity. If anyone Kylie’s age is reading this, please tell me you know what Friends is. Don’t let me down.
