When I opened it and saw that it wasn’t even funnyit was hurtful and derogatoryI was shocked because I walked in expecting something very different given the way things are nowadays and the progress we’ve made,” Maris said in an interview with the publication.
      “切り離された” was created by Darren Star, who is also behind the TV shows “ビバリーヒルズ, 90210,” “セックス・アンド・ザ・シティ” そして “パリのエミリー.” It follows a man named Michael, played by Harris, who is blindsided when his husband of 17 years walks out on him and now must navigate both the dissolution of his marriage and single life in New York City as a gay man in his 40s.
        Maris was shown portions of the script from the first episode featuring a character named Carmen, who is a housekeeper for the character Michael. In the first scene, バラエティによると, Carmen is introduced as beingnearly hysterical on the phone,” calling Michael to tell him in broken English that she suspects his apartment has been robbed.
          Mister, I just get here and they stole!” her line said. “They stole! They rob you! I don’t know how they get in.
          Ada Maris, pictured in 2019, spoke to Variety about her frustration with the role of Carmen in a script for the series "Uncoupled."

          In the second scene, Variety reported, Carmen berates Michael for the way he washed a glass, 言って, “番号, I do that. You don’t clean good, you always leave a ring.
          Reading the part for Carmen left Maris so outraged that she wrote an open letter to Star and Harris.
          I’m just fed up,” 彼女は言いました. “If I’m not going to say anything now, when am I going to say something? ただ欲しい (writers) to think the next time they write a character like that. I’m speaking out for the younger actors coming up so they face even less of that than my generation has.
            Harris is an executive producer for the series, but was not involved in writing or casting the role of the Latina housekeeper, Variety reported.
            CNN has reached out to Netflix for comment. The streaming service said in a statement to Variety that it apologized to Maris and that the character had been dropped from the show.
