Warning: This story features spoiler from season 2 of 13 reasons why.
The game continues. After the first season of 13 Reasons Why on Netflix, fans and parents debuted in social media to share their anger about Hannah's suicide scene ( Katherine Langford ). The same thing happens with Season 2 – this time the backlash is a reaction to a graphic scene in the season finale.
After he got help for his anger, Tyler Downs ( Devin Druid ) returned to the high School back only to be ambushed by Monty ( Timothy Granaderos ). After banging his head against the bathroom mirror and sinking and stuffing it into the toilet, he was sodomized at the end of a broomstick, leaving him bloody and crying. The episode ended with Tyler armed with several weapons going to school. Clay ( Dylan Minnette ) stopped him before he went in.
During the beginning of the season, as well as individual episodes, including warnings of graphic material, the fans still took to Twitter to ask if the intense scene was necessary to even tweet that it was necessary was "triggering" and that it should be canceled. In a recent interview, author Brian Yorkey explained the importance of the story and shared a message with those who felt insulted.
"We are committed in this broadcast to telling truthful stories about things that young people live through as unflinchingly as possible. We are fully aware that some of the scenes in the Series will be hard to see, "Yorkey said Monday, May 21 in a statement to Vulture . "I think Netflix has helped to provide the viewers with lots of resources to understand that this is not the show for everyone and resources for people who see it and are worried and in need of help."
He continued, "But the fact is that, as intense as this scene is, and as strong as they are or responses to it, it does not even come close to the pain that people experience, those things When we talk about something that is "disgusting" or difficult to see, it often means that we shame the experience, we would rather not face it, we would rather keep it out of our consciousness It's hard for victims to seek help, and we think it's much better to talk about it than silence. "
Yoreyery went on to say that the authors are deeply concerned about research were to see statistics on male sexual violence. "As we delved into this research, we were all amazed to see how many times that happened – that disturbingly similar story of a male high school athlete injuring a weaker boy with an instrument like a mopstick or a pool cue, "He explained.
The creator also added that in the first season, the graphic suicide scene "seemed to overshadow" the fact that both Hannah and Jessica ( Alisa Boe ) was raped.
"If there is a greater sense of backlash in this scene, especially if it's hard to see," disgusting "or inappropriate, then that goes to the point that we need to talk about the fact that such things happen" , he said. "The fact that this would be more disgusting than what happened to Hannah and Jessica, shocked, but not surprised."
