In a statement made on Tuesday, the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why announced that it had cut its controversial 3-minute long suicide scene. The show follows Hannah Baker breakout star Katherine Langford , who leaves behind thirteen tapes for the reasons she killed herself. The final episode of season 1 depicts the suicide in full view, as Hannah cuts her wrists and eventually bleeds out in a bathtub in a horribly gruesome scene. The scene caused major backlash following the show's premiere on Netflix. Now, over two years later and ahead of season 3, the series has finally agreed to cut the scene, in a move that's long overdue. So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we've decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one.
Deithorn believed the show could be harmful for her daughter, who was being treated for bipolar disorder and other mental health—related issues. But Deithorn could only do so much. A few weeks later, on June 24, , Emily killed herself — in the exact same manner as Hannah, the central character on the show. The causes behind a suicide can be complex, and experts caution against trying to find a single motivation for someone taking their own life. But mental health professionals have also warned viewers with mental health illnesses not to engage with the show , which some of them have criticized as glamorizing suicide. And 13 Reasons Why writer Nic Sheff wrote in a guest column for Vanity Fair that his own experience with mental health and a suicide attempt shaped his desire to include the scene on the show. Victor Schwartz, chief medical officer of the Jed Foundation , told BuzzFeed News in that the 13 Reasons Why team reached out a few days before the show premiered and asked the nonprofit organization — which focuses on teen mental health and suicide prevention — to review it.
