In November of 2020, an episode of the Saved By the Bell reboot was called out for making a similar joke. Peacock, UTV, and executive producers issued an apology and pulled the scene from the episode.

Selena hasn’t commented about the jokes, but it seems she’s far too busy living her best life. Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
