The story of Hannah Baker, a teenager who dies by suicide and leaves behind a series of tapes documenting what led to her decision, has come under fire for its portrayal of depression, sexual assault, and suicide - with the programme retrospectively adding further warnings to viewers in the wake of the backlash.
