Selena Gomez And Her Fans Upset With Kidney Transplant Jokes On TV

Selena Gomez took to social media to call out Paramount+ show “The Good Fight’. The show's latest episode poked fun at the singer’s kidney transplant back in 2017 due to her battle with lupus.

The offensive scene showed a comedy streaming executive played by Wayne Brady asking Liz played by Audra McDonald to conduct a sensitivity read on one of his comedians. This leads to a conversation between three characters from the show on comedy and cancel culture. One of the characters named Jay wonders if any topics are off-limits.

"Um, necrophilia?" Jim replies. 

"No, that could be funny," Marissa responds.


"Autism," Jay says.

"Selena Gomez's kidney transplant," Jim states.

After this scene was aired, the pop star’s fans were quick to react and began trending #RespectSelenaGomez on Twitter.

One fan wrote "So we're usin Selena's kidney transplant as a trend? Multiple times has this happened in media, it needs to stop. #RespectSelenaGomez."
