Selena Gomez comments on transplant joke in TV series

Selena Gomez (29) has had major problems with her health for years. She suffers from the autoimmune disease lupus. In 2017, she even had a kidney transplant. She shared a photo from the hospital on social media at the time and thanked her friend Francia Raisa, 33, who had donated a kidney to her. After making jokes about her intervention in a TV series, the singer now spoke up.

On Twitter wrote Selena: “I’m not sure when jokes about transplants on TV became the big deal, but unfortunately it seems to be.” In the past, the “Saved by the Bell” reboot made fun of the “Lose You To Love Me” performer at the expense of the “Lose You To Love Me” singer. When “The Good Fight” ridiculed Selena’s surgery, she had had enough. “I hope that the next time such a joke is suggested in a writer’s room, it won’t make it on TV,” the singer scolded. Many of her fans then campaigned for her on social media. On Twitter one of their supporters wrote: “When will people finally stop? Respected Selena Gomez!”

After the numerous messages, the “Wolves” singer thanked her fans and called for them to register as organ donors. A little later, the makers of “The Good Fight” apologized to her. The official statement of the station said: “It was never our intention to take Selena’s health lightly.” They would also donate to the musician’s organization for research on lupus.
