Almost four years ago, the popular singer Selena Gomez underwent a kidney transplant operation — her close friend Francia Rice gave her her kidney. That life period was very difficult for the star: she had to recover not only physically, but also mentally. Therefore, it is not surprising that Selena takes tactless comments on this topic to heart.
In a recent episode of the TV series "The Good Fight", an inappropriate joke was made on the topic of her operation, which shocked the fans of the star. They actively defended her on social networks and criticized the creators of the show.
In the scene, the characters of the series argued that people can't joke about necrophilia and autism, and one character says the following phrase:
And about Selena Gomez's kidney transplant,
— he said.
The 29-year-old star also did not leave the joke without attention and called it tasteless, and also thanked her fans for their support.
I'm not sure that it has become normal to write jokes about organ transplants for TV shows, but unfortunately, this seems to be the case. I hope that the next time a screenwriter presents one of these tasteless jokes, it will be immediately rejected and will not get on the air. My fans always support me. I love you,
— she wrote.
This is not the first time that Selena's operation has served as an occasion for jokes on the screen. Last year, her kidney transplant was joked about in the TV series "Saved by the Bell". Then the singer's fans also publicly protested and criticized the producers of the show.
