NBC’s Peacock Apologizes for ‘Saved by the Bell’ References regarding Selena Gomez’s Kidney Transplant
After NBC’s Peacock released new Saved by the Bell reboot that was distasteful regarding Selena Gomez’s kidney transplant, the streamer issued an apology. The sixth episode of the series showcases two Bayside high students wondering who would have been the singer’s donor, although it was already revealed in 2017 that it was her close friend and actor, Francia Raísa who donated a kidney. They argue about how it was either Justin Bieber’s mother or Demi Lovato. Later, a graffiti is shown reading “Does Selena Gomez even have a kidney?” which led to further backlash against the show.
