EDISON -

Millennial-focused website Bustle is taking heat for publishing a list examining all the reasons why "Seinfeld" would be a little too edgy by today's standards.

In the article, a writer detailed 13 jokes that would be unacceptable by today's standards.

According to the website, number one on the list is possibly the most well-known joke from the entire series, the "Soup Nazi."

The controversy follows attacks on other long-running shows such as "Friends" and "Family Guy."

Fans of the shows are defending it, saying the jokes carried different weight when the show ran from 1989 to 1998.
