Netflix's 13 Reasons Why has been the subject of intense controversy and debate since its premiere in March.
Selena Gomez, who served as an executive producer on the series, recently weighed in (opens in new tab) on the backlash it has faced, saying, "We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what [author] 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] gonna come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing."
Now, indie rock band Car Seat Headrest, which contributed a song to the series' soundtrack, has spoken out against the show, according to E! Online (opens in new tab). In a series of tweets posted Saturday, the band implored, "Please don't tell kids how to turn their miserable and hopeless lives into a thrilling and cathartic suicide mission."
Instead, the band encouraged fans to check out a different Selena Gomez project instead: Spring Breakers.
