13 Reasons Why has caused so much controversy within the past year, and for good reason. This show is violent, triggering and simply uncalled for. Its message gets lost in translation and only brings harm more than it brings awareness.

Last March when the initial season of 13 Reasons Why was released, I was anxious to watch it. I enjoyed the book in middle school because I related to it. In middle school I dealt with suicidal thoughts and actions and was looking for an outlet to be a martyr.

In the first season, the biggest thing that stood out were the two rape scenes and the graphic depiction of the suicide scene. The entire premise of the show was to release reasons for suicide of the late Hannah Baker. All these reasons did was make at-risk people question their stability. I know that I personally started questioning whether I should live or not. I know that I have seen other people share the same remarks. The depictions of violence in the show were too graphic and uncalled for.

In the second season, one of the characters is raped with a broom by a fellow classmate. There are many more examples and all of these examples could be fleshed out and explained even more but those of you signing this petition have probably already heard of all of the violence that takes place within this problematic show.

I was okay with having the first season because, despite its terrifyingly unsafe message, it would be over. It finished nicely. All the second season is for causing more problems and making more money. It has lost its narrative and its purpose. You can't even claim that this is still about suicide awareness because it isn't anymore.

This petition exist to accomplish two things. The first one and the one that needs to happen the most, is to have 13 Reasons Why cancelled. Second and optional goal is to have 13 Reasons Why taken off of Netflix entirely. I hope that we can at least get 13 Reasons Why cancelled. Please sign this petition and send it to your friends and people that you know who would be interested in this. Thank you so much.
