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

Francia Raisa has broken her silence on the controversy after NBC’s Saved By the Bell reboot made 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.

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

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

Francia then took to Twitter to address the Network’s 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,” she tweeted.
