Actress Kirstie Alley urged parents to not let their children see the Netflix Original series 13 REASONS WHY in a recent tweet due to its “dark” content.
*Editor’s Note: Alley’s tweet contains some foul language.
“Don’t let your kids watch 13 Reasons Why…DARK so DARK,” said Alley. “Such an onslaught of the most non stop f***** upness to come down the highschool pike since Caligula was 16.”
The final season of 13 REASONS WHY released on Netflix on June 5, hence Alley’s warning.
Movieguide® previously reported, “Though 13 REASONS WHY will be done soon, but that doesn’t mean its lasting effects are over.”
13 REASONS WHY followers a teenage character who commits suicide. But that’s just season one.
The following seasons track high school characters and the aftermath of the suicide.
As a mother herself, Alley’s warnings aren’t without merit.
Netflix rates 13 REASONS WHY TV-MA for lewd content like sex, nudity, suicide and language, but still, a viewer of any age can click “play.”
As of this writing, 13 REASONS WHY continues to trend on Netflix.
