    The Parents Television council wants 13 reasons why cancelled by Netflix

    Oh come on here every time we hear things like "PTC calls for a show to be boycotted, or cancelled" we find out that more people will watch the show in question. We seen this on cable and ota TV in the past though.

    . NEW YORK (AP) — A media watchdog group is calling on Netflix to pull its “13 Reasons Why” series because of potentially harmful content.

    The Parents Television Council describes the second season of the series as “a ticking time bomb to teens and children.” It wants both seasons yanked.

    A request for comment from Netflix wasn’t immediately returned Monday.

    The first season of “13 Reasons Why” included a graphic depiction of a teen’s suicide. The second season includes a story line about a student’s thwarted plans to shoot up a school dance.

    The conservative council claims 1.4 million members and is dedicated to curbing sex, violence and profanity on TV and in other media. In the past, it has opposed shows such as “Glee,” ”The Mick,” ”Scream Queens” and “The Real O’Neals.”

    Here is now an update for controversies at 13 reasons why a scene showing rape on a guy came into play that has sparked current issue of the show.

    . 13 Reasons Why is no stranger to inciting moral outrage over its sensitive content. In its first season, the graphic depiction of Hannah Baker’s suicide sparked a wave of backlash. The second season now begins with a full PSA that the show might not be appropriate for certain viewers at risk of being triggered by its “tough, real-world issues.” The darkest issue in season two is sexual assault — after Hannah’s parents sue her high school for negligence, their case focuses on the student who assaulted her — and it reaches perhaps its darkest moment in the final episode, during a rarely seen depiction of a man sexually assaulting another man.

    In the season finale, “Bye,” school photographer Tyler Down is brutally raped when three student-athletes attack him in a bathroom, shove his head in a toilet, then sodomize him with a broken mop handle. Tyler is left bleeding from the rear, bruised, and so badly traumatized that he later shows up at his school with the intention of carrying out a mass shooting. The scene has reignited controversy over the show, with some viewers saying they were “disgusted” by the scene and calling for the show to be canceled.

    On Monday, Vulture spoke with 13 Reasons Why creator Brian Yorkey, who defended the scene’s inclusion, claiming that it developed from research on real-life cases of sexual violence against men in high school and that the decision to depict its graphic nature was not done gratuitously. To those offended or triggered by the scene, Yorkey shared this statement:

  3. #3
    Shows have been pulled in the past because they had been deemed to encourage suicide.
    There is an episode of the original Hawaii Five-O that was pulled from the syndication package
    because it was thought to have inspired copycat suicides.
