Netflix adds homicide to suicide in new season

Sign the petition demanding that Netflix pull Seasons 1, 2, and 3 of its original series 13 Reasons Why.

More than two years after the 2017 debut of 13 Reasons Why, Netflix finally responded to concerns about the negative impact of the controversial suicide-themed series. Netflix deleted Season 1’s three-minute graphic teen suicide scene. But that was after releasing a second season about suicide, rape, sexual assault, and mental illness, and now a third season with a teen homicide at the helm of the show’s darkness, filth, and perversion.

Netflix has confirmed a fourth and final season that is already in production.

Although AFA acknowledges the removal of Season 1’s suicide scene and applauds that there is an end in sight for the series, AFA is not giving in or giving up. AFA is pressing on, stronger now than ever, and putting the maximum pressure on Netflix to pull all seasons of this dangerous series from its streaming service.

AFA executive vice president Ed Vitagliano said that the whole series “is a dark and demonic primer for impressionable young people, inviting them to enter a realm of perversion, hatred, and violence that has been birthed in hell itself.”
