Reasons why ‘13 Reasons Why’ is the worst piece of entertainment today

The American web series on digital bullying and teen suicide gets everything wrong, feels Rajiv Makhni

It’s been deemed the most tweeted show of 2017 and the most discussed show on Facebook. But it is an online series and this is a column mostly about Tech. Why am I talking about it here? Because a lot of what happens in Thirteen Reasons Why, is about technology. How today’s digital generation skims but doesn’t delve deep into relationships, how it doesn’t understand the permanency and repercussions of social posts and pictures, and more importantly, the absolute lack of privacy in today’s ‘click and share it with everyone’ world. All of that leads to the extinguishing of a very young life.
