13 Reasons Why is currently in its second season on Netflix. Executive producer, Selena Gomez, helped make the first season a hit. Nonetheless, a graphic suicide scene did cause controversy. Some even claimed the show glorified it. Those involved with the show argue that it can prevent such tragedies. In addition, they want to help start a conversation. However, the show is under fire again after season two. This controversy is due to yet another graphic scene. Netflix has an interesting perspective on the matter.

The Controversial Scene

While the first season focused on suicide, season two tackles sexual assault. The graphic scene that has the show under fire depicts just that. A young man is assaulted by a group of baseball players.
