13 Reasons Why, which is based on Jay Asher‘s 2007 young adult novel of the same name, tells the story of a high school student named Hannah (Katherine Langford) who dies by suicide and leaves behind 13 cassette tapes for her classmates, each containing a reason why she decided to end her life. The first season premiered on March 31 and created controversy online for its graphic content, prompting Netflix to add warning messages at the beginning of each episode.

Gomez addressed the backlash in an interview with the Associated Press, saying, “We stayed very true to the book and that’s initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that’s what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, [the backlash is] going to come no matter what. It’s not an easy subject to talk about, but I’m very fortunate with how it’s doing.”
