Selena Gomez expressed her annoyance.
Selena Gomez responded angrily to a joke made in the drama series "The Good Fight" about the kidney transplant she underwent in 2017.

Fans brought to the forefront of social media a scene from the fourth episode of the most recent season of the legal drama.

In this scene, the characters discuss her culture of cancellation and "jokes leave", with one of the participants noting that they wrote a joke about Selena Gomez's kidney transplant.

"I'm not sure how it has become a trend to write jokes about organ transplants in TV series, but unfortunately it has obviously happened," the singer wrote on Twitter.

"I hope that at the next gathering of copywriters, when one of these tasteless jokes is presented, he will be condemned immediately and will not go on the air," he noted.

"My fans always support me. I love you. If you are able, please sign up to become an organ donor, ”he continued, adding a link to the organ donor registration page on the US Resource and Health Services website.

In 2017, Selena Gomez announced that she underwent a kidney transplant due to the complications of systemic lupus erythematosus, the incurable autoimmune disease from which she suffers and affects the internal organs.

However, a source close to "The Good Fight" told "The Hollywood Reporter" that the people of the series do not believe that the joke was out of bounds.

"If you watch the whole episode, the reference to Gomez is part of a discussion that the characters have about issues that are not right to make fun of and the idea of ​​culture cancellation and cancellation because they told a bad joke. "The reference is that her transplant is not something you can joke about," he explained.

The revival of "Saved By The Bell" received similar criticism last year after a joke against Selena Gomez. The controversy resulted in NBC removing the episode and apologizing.

The network's leaders then donated to the Selena Gomez Fund for Wolf Research at the University of Southern California, a charity started by the singer to research the development of treatments for autoimmune disease.
