Two years since its release, Netflix decides to re-edit the controversial suicide scene out.
The show revolves around the suicide of the teen character of the show, Hannah Baker. Many suicide prevention organizations worry that the scene in the original edit would romanticize suicide, so Netflix and the show's creator decided to re-edit the scene.
"Our creative intent in portraying the ugly, painful reality of suicide in such graphic detail in Season 1 was to tell the truth about the horror of such an act, and make sure no one would ever wish to emulate it," show creator Brian Yorkey said in a statement. "But as we ready to launch Season 3, we have heard concerns about the scene from Dr. Christine Moutier at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and others, and have agreed with Netflix to re-edit it."
