Selena Gomez fans called out by Francia Raisa after vicious bullying
Los Angeles, California - Francia Raisa, who donated her kidney to then-BFF Selena Gomez in 2017, is speaking out about the brutal hate she's received from the singer's fans.
On Monday, TMZ shared a video of Francia speaking with a cameraman about the onslaught of bullying she's faced since dodging questions about her current relationship with the 30-year-old star earlier this month.
The How I Met Your Father actor gave a glimpse at how cruel social media has been to her, revealing that one fan told her they hope someone "rips out your other kidney, you f***ing whore."
Francia went on add that no one condones such vicious bullying, "especially Selena."
The online attacks came after the Secret Life of the American Teenager alum appeared to confirm rumors that the pair are no longer friends, five years after Francia donated her kidney to Selena amid lupus complications.
It's unclear when the longtime friendship ended. Though the pair did throw shade at one another in 2022, Sel gave her a heartfelt shoutout in a docuseries released in March.
While discouraging the bullying, Francia also seemed to give a nod to the recent online drama between Selena and Hailey Bieber.
Francia Raisa says Selena Gomez wouldn't approve of bullying by fans
Selena and Hailey have long been pitted against each other due to Selena's past relationship with Hailey's now-husband, Justin Bieber.
After the fan-fueled social media feud heightened so much so that Hailey was receiving death threats, the Selena + Chef host called for an end to the bullying, and Francia appeared to reference this while speaking to TMZ about her own experience.
"It's not what anyone wants for someone. [Selena's] literally out there saying please stop, so I don't understand why it's not stopping. Not just for me, but for others who are also being antagonized online," Francia said of the cruel comments.
Francia shared her empathy for passionate and protective fans but reiterated that the comments are significantly impacting her mental health.
