This Stranger Things star has warned people against watching the new Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why

Shannon Purser (who plays Barb) from the Netflix series Stranger Things has spoken out about her feelings towards the new series 13 Reasons Why.

She posted her thoughts on Twitter over the weekend, warning people about watching it due to the graphic content and potential harm it could do to those suffering from suicidal thoughts.

Shannon says those who, "currently suffer with suicidal thoughts or self/harm" or have undergone sexual assault should most definitely avoid watching the series. 

There are advisory warnings before the first episode of the series, which she says are appreciated.

She went on to explain that there are some "very graphic scenes in there that could easily trigger painful memories and feelings."
