Selena Gomez fans are coming to her support. On Saturday, “Respect Selena Gomez” began trending on Twitter after a scene from the Saved By the Bellreboot went viral. In the clip, two high school students are seen arguing about who was the singer’s kidney donor for her transplant.

Gomez underwent a kidney transplant in 2017 to combat her Lupus. She later revealed it was her friend and Grown-ish actress Francia Raisa who was her donor.

“I know for a fact that Selena Gomez’s kidney donor was Justin Bieber’s mom. God, I wish that I had my phone so that I could prove it,” one character says, while the other replies, “Prove what? That you’re an idiot? It was Demi Lovato’s kidney. They’re best friends, like you and I were.”

In another scene, a poster reading, “Does Selena Gomez even have a kidney?” is seen hanging on the wall.

“Saved by the Bell, that’s disgusting. Selena almost lost her life, jokes about her kidney transplant is NOT FUNNY. Respect Selena Gomez,” one Twitter user wrote.

Even more Selenators took to social media to defend Gomez, as well as note that making fun of someone’s health is not funny.

“using what selena gomez went through for entertainment is blatantly insensitive and wrong. what she went through was real and it wasn’t easy. it’s so incredibly disgusting seeing it be used as a joke for entertainment. RESPECT SELENA GOMEZ,” one fan tweeted.

“Joking about someone’s disease is not funny whatsoever,” another wrote. “It’s just so cruel and unjust. Selena doesn’t deserve that & no one else deserves that either.”

“This was Selena’s last post before she went into surgery for her kidney transplant. she said goodbye to all & the world coz she didn’t know if she’ll survive & these people are out here making jokes about it for some clout,” another fan captioned their photo, adding, “RESPECT SELENA GOMEZ.”
