Francia Raisa Reacts to 'Saved By the Bell' Reboot Joking About Selena Gomez's Kidney Transplant

Francia Raisa has broken her silence regarding the Saved By the Bell reboot making jokes about Selena Gomez‘s kidney transplant surgery.

If you didn’t know, Francia donated one of her kidneys to Selena back in 2017 amid her battle with lupus.

There are two separate scenes in episode six of the Peacock series where the identity of Selena‘s kidney donor is speculated.

In one scene, two girls argue over whether the kidney came from Selena‘s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s mom or her former best friend Demi Lovato. In another scene, graffiti on a wall appears to say, “Does Selena Gomez even have a kidney?”

If you didn’t know, Francia donated one of her kidneys to Selena back in 2017 amid her battle with lupus.

The show faced major backlash regarding the jokes, leading Peacock to release an apology message.

Francia then took to Twitter to address the apology.

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,” Francia tweeted.

Selena has not yet publicly addressed the situation.
