Therefore, she wrote on her IG Stories: ‘Some of the cast members and producers have reached out to me to apologize for this and I appreciate that, but I do want to acknowledge this public apology from the network should acknowledge the donors that could've been offended by this. It is not about me. it is about acknowledging the great role donors play @nbc @peacocktv #savedbythebell.’

And that was not all as the star also posted her reaction via Twitter, writing: ‘Appreciate the apology but let's not forget the donors that potentially felt offended and dismissed from the spray paint written on the wall [in the scene]. As a kidney donor, I want to show love and let other donors know you are not alone. You're seen. You're appreciated. You're so brave and your selfless act is much appreciated and valued!’
