Selena Gomez is not here for anyone critiquing her acting or humor.
Be prepared to be called an ‘a**’ if you decide to do so.
The Grammy-nominated singer popped off on a fan who just couldn’t take a joke.
On Tuesday, November 30, Sel posted a video to TikTok about “heavy” drinking.
Sel can be seen reacting to a doctor, Dr. Dawn Bantel, defining what “heavy” drinking is defined as according to the CDC.
Dr. Bantel says, “The [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] defines heavy drinking as 15 or more drinks a week for men and eight or more drinks per week for women.”

Selena comedically reacts to the video by biting her nails and mouthing “Oh” while expressing ‘shock’ and ‘worry’ on her face.
She captioned the video, “Duet with Dr. Bantel it’s a joke.”
Keyword here being “joke.”
Many fans appreciated Sel’s humor and even felt a bit bad that she had to put “joke” in the caption, because they knew some people would freak out on her.
Selena faces backlash for drinking TikTok
One fan commented, “the way you put ‘it’s a joke’ so you won’t get canceled lmao.”
Another wrote, “The fact you need to say that this is a joke…🥺 I love you.”
However, there were some fans who didn’t take kindly to Sel’s “joke.”
“It’s a bad joke…” one upset fan left in the comments.
Another person, who has since deleted their comment, wrote, “so one of your best friends gives you her kidney and you continue to drink excessively. Damn selena.”

If you comment, prepare to feel the wrath of SelGo.
Selena clapped back, “It was a joke a**.”
As Selenators know, she received a kidney transplant in 2017 from actress Francia Raisa. She had to get the life-saving surgery after suffering complications from her lupus diagnosis.
If you didn’t know, the kidneys are the body’s filtration system, so anything toxic entering the body must be filtrated through the kidneys.
Selena’s 2017 kidney transplant was life-saving
Selena has been accused and criticized of partaking in unhealthy behavior after her kidney transplant in the past.
Back in October, the “Only Murders In The Building” actress was once again criticized about her alcohol consumption.
The singer jokingly admitted she drinks not one, not two, but six days a week.
‘Jokingly’ being the key word here.
In a TikTok video uploaded to her page last month, SelGo pantomimed her way through a voiceover which stated, “I’m actually drinking one day a week, and then like Friday and Saturday. So like, so like three days a week… and then Thursday, because Thursday ahh.”

The video continued and got even more hilarious as Selena said, “So, like four nights a week, yeah. And then there’s also like a birthday so, like five, five days a week. And then if one of those nights’ rolls into a brunch the next day, like a classic brunch rollover, then six days. So just like six days. Just like mellowing out. We’re growing up.”
She captioned the video, “This was so damn hard lol.”
Some fans were living for this impromptu performance while others were concerned.
One fan commented, “Are we joking about alcoholism, bc like, let’sss not normalize this one.”
“Girl that’s how you treat your kidneys” another upset fan wrote.
One person responded to that comment writing, “Y’all she is literally joking abt all the people calling her ana alcoholic omg.”
Obviously, the TikTok was done in good fun, and there was no actual truth to it.
