— -- After news broke last week that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were splitting, the Jennifer Aniston memes began.

Fans took to social media to post jokes involving Pitt's first ex-wife. Aniston and Pitt were married from 2000 to 2005.

Aniston has not spoken publicly about Jolie's separation from Pitt.

In an interview with Business Insider, Aniston's current husband, Justin Theroux, addressed the Aniston memes and tabloid coverage.

"There's an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don't have that appetite," Theroux told the site.

He continued, "But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to b---- about. It's shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world."

But Theroux, who doesn't have many ties to Pitt or Jolie, also spoke about their six kids and what they must be experiencing.

"As a child of divorce, all I can say is that's terrible news for those children, and that's all you can really say. It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time — that's horrible," he said.

Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19 and is requesting physical custody of the children.

"This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time," Jolie's attorney Robert Offer told ABC News.

Pitt also released a statement, saying "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids."
