In the Paramount+ drama's July 17 episode, Nyambi Nyambi's Jay discussed the effects of "cancel culture" with Sarah Steele's Marissa and Ifádansi Rashad's Jim. Jay quipped that comedians "need a permission slip to tell a joke" in today's climate. He went on to ask his co-workers what jokes they felt were inappropriate, prompting responses that included "necrophilia," "autism" and "Selena Gomez's kidney transplant." Gomez responded to the episode Tuesday, tweeting: "I am not sure how writing jokes about organ transplants for television shows has become a thing but sadly it has apparently," Gomez tweeted. "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 then encouraged her fans to sign up to be an organ donor. Meanwhile, a source points out to People that the reference was far from offensive: "If you watch the episode in full, the reference to Selena Gomez is part of a discussion the characters are having about topics that are not okay to make fun of and the idea of cancel culture and being cancelled for telling a bad joke. The reference is that Selena Gomez's transplant is not something you can joke about."
