Selena Gomez was the center of conversation in one episode of the newly reboot show Saved by the Bell. The actors were constantly making jokes about the kidney transplant Gomez had back in 2017 from life threatening complications with lupus.

The tv execs from Peacock and NBCUniversal have issued an apology.

“We apologize. It was never our intention to make light of Selena’s health. We have been in touch with her team and will be making a donation to her charity, The Selena Gomez Fund for Lupus Research at USC,” the statement reads.
