Selena Gomez has just wrapped up filming the second season of 13 Reasons Why but one mourning father who has lost his daughter to suicide after she watched the first season is furious Selena dared to make another one! Not only is he slamming the singer who produced the popular Netflix show but he also wants to sue!
‘I am still completely disgusted. Selena makes me sick. She’s an extremely disturbed individual to think that this show has any redeeming social value,’ John Herndon said.
He and wife Donna found their 15-year-old daughter hung in her own closet back in April.
Although the teen was taken to the hospital right after, she sadly passed away ten days later.
Upon finding out that the girl had watched 13 Reasons Why, which triggered her suicidal tendencies, the man began his quest to get the second season shut down.
‘Selena and Netflix need to understand that not everybody is going to understand this very well. Some people who are battling depression, this could catch them at a wrong time, creating what is called a trigger event,’ the father explained.
As you may remember, the show has been slammed by many for romanticizing suicide.
Herndon stated that he even reached out to Gomez on her official website, begging the singer and actress to stop the second season’s production but received no response.
He called both popular streaming service Netflix and Selena ‘hypocritical’ considering they fired Danny Masterson and Kevin Spacey following their sexual harassment allegations but did nothing to change the destructive nature of the show.
‘They made the said decisions to make themselves look like a socially responsible company, yet they’re making a product about hurt people and how they can hurt themselves,’ the heartbroken father lamented.
As for Selena’s life-saving surgery, the man said: ‘She’s spared no expenses rattling her own saber about her kidney transplant. She talked about how painful it was and spent significant effort getting that ‘oh poor me’ out there. That is just disgusting!’
