Netflix cancelled tonight's premiere event in L.A for 13 Reasons Why season 2 following the school shooting at Santa Fe, Tx which left 10 dead and 10 injured.
“Our hearts are with the victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting, and with all victims of gun violence,” Netflix said in a statement. “In light of today’s tragedy, we are cancelling the ’13 Reasons Why’ S2 premiere event tonight.”

This season prefaces with a warning -featuring cast members - addressing the triggering content the show features.
Some of the cast like Dylan Minette, Christian Navarro, and Alisha Boe have expressed support on twitter for the victims in Texas.
I can’t comprehend this. You deserve so much more than thoughts, prayers, full hearts and tears. You deserve your lives back. This is insufferable. We have to be better, as a people.— Christian Navarro (@ChristianLN0821) May 18, 2018
