Guy Committed Suicide After Watching The Series 13 Reasons Why
Even before the end of the season and when it already became really popular, several people have already feared the after effect of the most controversial story 13 Reasons Why. Although the main purpose of the series is to raise awareness when it comes to suicide, it came to the point that it was somewhat being justified and encouraged instead of condemning the act. Several group have already showed disapproval with the series yet it has been neglected and then someone just committed a suicide in the same manner as what Hannah Baker did.
A guy whose identity being kept confidential committed suicide by jumping off from the fourth floor of their apartment in Peru. He was just 23 years old and his mother was even there when the incident happened. The odd thing here is that just like the series, the guy left two suicide notes. The first note was intended for a girl that he likes and the other one is a list of people that he consider as the reasons why he could no longer take it anymore. He also left recorded tapes along with the note just exactly how the series went through.
Although nobody wanted this to happen, but the makers of the series failed to act upon their social responsibility in preserving life. It is somewhat they were confident when they tried to justify suicide given the fact that it was just a TV series. But what happens now that it actually occurred in real life? What will happen to those who became part of the list? They were forced to feel guilty of something that they never wished to happen.
Issues like suicide must not be taken lightly especially now that media has a huge impact on its viewers. This is not the first time that a disastrous thing like this happened. There are also cases of death related to movies such as 50 Shades of Grey.
