“The Good Fight” joke over Selena Gomez‘ 2017 kidney transplant has met with backlash from the singer as well as her fans.
“I am not sure how writing jokes about organ transplants for television shows has become a thing but sadly it has apparently,” she wrote on Twitter on Tuesday, referring to the fourth episode of season 5 of the Paramount+ legal drama, where characters discussed “Selena Gomez’s kidney transplant” as a topic deemed to be taboo.
“I hope in the next writer’s room when one of these tasteless jokes are presented it’s called out immediately and doesn’t make it on air,” she added.
Fans came in defense of the 29-year-old former Disney Channel star online, with the “Respect Selena Gomez” hash tag trending.
She responded by saying, “My fans always have my back. LOVE YOU.” Gomez then shared a link to an organ donor page, encouraging people to sign up.
