The New Zealand censorship office has created a completely new category for a controversial Netflix series.

The release of 13 Reasons Why has sparked anger from many who claim it glorifies suicide and is too graphic.

The series tells the fictional story of 17-year-old Hannah Baker, who takes her own life but leaves behind 13 tapes for people she blames for her death.
