Selena Gomez's friend and kidney donor, Francia Raisa shares a message about the controversial "Saved By The Bell" reboot episode joking about kidney transplants. "I was not offended by the dialogue that was said. I was offended by the spray paint written on the wall that said, 'Does Selena Gomez even have kidneys' and that just felt very dismissive to donors. I wasn't offended for myself." Raisa adds, "It's a tough process. It's a tough decision, and I was just afraid that, you know, if anyone trying to donate is looking for a sign from God to not to do it, and I just felt like that could have potentially made a donor to say no, I don't want to do this, I don't want to get made fun of." She adds, "I just wish NBC in their public apology would have addressed potential donors or the donors that felt offended, and not just Selena."
