Fans of Selena Gomez criticized the new version of the TV series Saved by the Bell for the fact that it mentions and ridicules the story of Selena’s kidney transplant several times. So, in one of the episodes, the heroes argue who was the kidney donor – Justin Bieber’s mom or Demi Lovato. In fact, a close friend of Gomez, Francia Raica, was the donor.
Selena’s offended fans demanded an apology from the TV company and got theirs. Peacock and NBCUniversal have released a statement saying, “We are sorry. Making fun of Selena’s health was never our intention. We’ve reached out to her team and will make a donation to her lupus research foundation. ” Recall that as a result of this disease, Gomez faced many health problems and because of him she needed a kidney transplant.
Appreciate the apology but let’s not forget about the donors that potentially felt offended and dismissed from the spray paint written on the wall https://t.co/HIwa30PKMM
