Peacock has apologized for a "Saved by the Bell" episode that used Selena Gomez's kidney transplant for a few jokes and is putting its money where its mouth is.

However, after students' phones are taken away, the two girls have no way of checking their sources when it comes to knowing who gave Gomez her much-needed kidney back in 2017 to treat her Lupus.

In 2015, Gomez went public with her lupus diagnosis, for which she had previously received chemotherapy.

Soon after "Respect Selena Gomez" became one of the top trends on social media. In the clip, the two characters bicker, with one insisting it was the mother of her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, while another said it was her former best friend, Demi Lovato. The other student replies, "Prove what?" It shows a wall covered with writing that fans of Gomez pointed out seems to say: "Does Selena Gomez even have kidneys?"

Fans have called for these references to be pulled from the show, saying it's disrespectful and rude to play someone's health journey for comedy.

On Saturday, eagle-eyed fans of Selena Gomez took to Twitter to claim that an episode of the reboot seems to mention the singer's name and the fact that she's had a kidney transplant. Selena nearly lost her life, jokes about her kidney transplant is NOT FUNNY.

Another tweeted directly at Peacock, the NBC streaming platform producing the sohw: "When someone does a joke with a person with Lupus, it's disrespecting all people that fighting daily for survive, with problems on immune system, kidneys, skin..." As a result of the backlash following the series' Thanksgiving premiere, Peacock has issued an apology and a donation for the singer's Lupus research fund. It was never our intention to make light of Selena's health.
