The conversations about “13 Reasons Why” continues, but Netflix is going to address at least one concern: Content warnings.
The show will now contain an overall warning advising viewer discretion for potentially troubling content.
Netflix said: “Moving forward, we will add an additional viewer warning card before the first episode as an extra precaution for those about to start the series and have also strengthened the messaging and resource language in the existing cards for episodes that contain graphic subject matter, including the URL 13ReasonsWhy.info — a global resource center that provides information about professional organizations that support help around the serious matters addressed in the show.”
A marketing expert says "'13 Reasons Why' should be walled-off from view by those under 13 because of its potential existential threat. But, it's mandatory for teenagers because it teaches them how modern day cruel actions can have a devastatingly deadly emotional and personal impact on kids in their life.”
