In the scene, a team is discussing cancel culture and brainstorms what is and isn't off-limits. While some characters suggest that people can't joke about necrophilia and autism, a character named Jim quips, "Selena Gomez’s kidney transplant." Selenators quickly stormed social media, and Gomez herself tweeted, "I am not sure how writing jokes about organ transplants for television shows has become a thing but sadly it has apparently. I hope in the next writer’s room when one of these tasteless jokes are presented it’s called out immediately and doesn’t make it on air." She added a big thank-you to her fans and a link to sign up to become an organ donor. Celebrity clapbacks range from hilarious to absolutely brutal, and they can be targeted at just about anyone.
