A representative for ABC Studios confirmed the deletion of the episodes on CNN, claiming that they had been removed from the streaming platform on Tuesday evening at the request of the producers and with the support of the studio.

The three episodes were from two different seasons of the comedy, which was broadcast on NBC for nine seasons from 2001 to 2010.

The episodes were titled “My Friend the Doctor” (Season 3, episode 8), “My Jiggly Ball” (Season 5, episode 4) and “My Chopped Liver” (Season 5, episode 17).

The decision comes the same week that Tina Fey was asked to streaming services in a letter to delete the episodes of “30 Rock,” which had white actors in black.

In his letter, Fey apologized for the four episodes and the “pain that they have caused”.
