Netflix Removes Controversial Suicide Scene

Netflix said the decision had been made “on the advice of medical experts”.

The first series of the show featured a graphic depiction of Hannah (Katherine Langford) taking her own life.

The version now hosted on the streaming site omits this three-minute scene and goes directly to a later scene in which her body is discovered.

The scene was scheduled to be removed from “13 Reasons Why” following a controversy over whether the show increased the risk of teen suicide.~mb
