’13 Reasons Why’ Star Quits Instagram After Receiving Abuse Over New Character | TV News


New 13 Reasons Why actress Grace Saif has quit Instagram following abuse on social media over her character Ani Achola. Her fellow star Timothy Granaderos has defended Saif on his own account, calling for the hate to stop.


Grace Saif has recently joined the 13 Reasons Why cast, appearing in seasons three as new narrator Ani Achola. Viewers’ reaction to the latest addition to the show has been largely negative. Many have pointed out the new student is unrelated to the events shown in the previous seasons.


After personal attacks on social media over her controversial new character, the 23-year-old actress seems to have abandoned her instagram account, deleting her profile picture, along with all previous posts.


Co-star Timothy Granaderos, who plays Montgomery de la Cruz, recently took to his own instagram to stick up for the actress. He posted a photo of himself, Grace and other 13 Reasons Why actors and wrote: “Hey Y’all, just a reminder. Whether or not you support, like, or love, a character in our fictional tv show—please remember that there is a talented and beautiful actor/actress bringing those scripted words to life.


One of the underlining themes in our show is to take care of each other. I’ve seen some pretty nasty things being said online, concerning the inroduction of a new character. Y’all are passionate & we love you for that, but PLEASE PLEASE try to be kind and respect the work of the talented actress/actor behind the character”.




Another cast member Anne Winters also defended the new character, claiming she was essential for the show’s development. “You need someone that has the other side of Bryce and we wouldn’t have really gotten to see that unless there was some sort of new character that was living with him”, she said.
