A grieving mother has pleaded with other parents to think twice about letting their children watch a popular Netflix show after he daughter killed herself after finishing it. According to the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, there were 195 more suicides than expected in the nine months after the series was released.
Netflix in recent years has gone from a start-up movie rental service (remember those cute little red envelopes the DVDs came in?) to a major Hollywood player with billions of dollars in financing. As their revenues have increased to a brilliant brightness, their programming has darkened considerably.
Their new content is not only sexually highly-charged, it is also becoming disproportionately focused on themes revolving around serial killers, horror and suicide. Now the body count in real life of people killing themselves after watching these types of shows is skyrocketing. 195 suicides so far have been traced back to their new series ’13 Reasons Why’. That’s a number so shocking that you need to pause for a moment and think about that. That’s a lot of dead teenagers.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
We live in the end times, in the overlapping period of time from the end of the Church Age into the time of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. The bible tells us that darkness would be on the rise, dramatically in that time, and here we are. Netflix is not so much the problem as it is a barometer of where we are headed as a society.
If you have young children who watch Netflix, maybe it’s time to take a look at what they’re watching, and start preempting some programming. You just might save their life.
Her death came three weeks after ’13 Reasons Why’ aired on Netflix.
FROM DAILY MAIL UK: Rachael Warburton, says her daughter Jessica Scatterson, 12, left a suicide note with ‘six reasons to kill herself’ before she hanged herself. She had told her mother that she had been watching 13 Reasons Why, a show about a teenager who commits suicide and leaves a series of recording that attempt to explain her irrational decision.
A new US study has also found that teen suicides spiked 30 per cent after first season of 13 Reasons Why aired on Netflix, with the rise mainly driven by boys, although no direct causal link could be made.
Jessica was watching this show with her friends and listed six reasons why she wanted to die,’ Rachel told the Mirror.
‘It should be banned, because my daughter watched it and it gives children the idea to self-harm.’
An inquest into the young girl’s death heard she and her friends had self-harmed, and that she had made superficial cuts to her leg in the shape of lettering. Jessica’s friends had called police after she posted a photo of her foot with ‘RIP’ written on it.
He found her hanged in her bedroom at her father’s home in Warrington, Cheshire, just two days short of her 13th birthday.
A small blade from a pencil sharpener was found in her room, as well as notes that referred to suicide, and the name of an alleged bully and a drawing of someone being hanged. Her death came three weeks after 13 Reasons Why was first shown on Netflix.
Most episodes received a 15 age certificate from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). Four were given an 18 rating, including one in the first series in which lead character Hannah Barker (Katherine Langford) kills herself.
Mother Rachael, a care support worker from Leigh, Greater Manchester said of the programme she had been watching: ‘Its intentions are to raise suicide awareness but I believe it encourages young people to commit suicide.
‘All Jessica’s friends were messaging each other discussing the series. Parents should be warned not to let their children watch it.’ According to the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, there were 195 more suicides than expected in the nine months after the series was released.
