Social media’s ablaze over Who is the Bad Art Friend, aka “the kidney story,” the New York Times Magazine long read chronicling a very extra saga about live kidney donation, friendship, white saviours, allegations of plagiarism, artistic license and, horror of horrors — the publication of group chat texts.
