13 Reasons Whys character faces backlash

Grace Saif plays Liberty High's newest student Ani in the latest season of 13 Reasons Why.

Sadly, Grace's character has been facing so much backlash online that she's been forced to delete her social media accounts.

Her co-stars have been defending her, 'PLEASE try to be kind and respect the work of a talented actress...'

Ani

Grace's character Ani plays a key role in the latest season of the show.

She's the new girl at Liberty High and finds herself growing closer and closer to Clay Jensen.

When Bryce Walker is found dead, she helps Clay investigate who killed the jock.

Along the way, she gets to know Clay's close friends and fellow students.

She watches everything and finds herself involved in every story.

It seems fans can't trust her.

Backlash

Viewers have taken to Twitter to express their disdain for the character.

'WHY THIS BI**H IN EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS WHEN SHE DOESNT EVEN KNOW THEM OR WAS THERE????'

It's one thing to critique a character on a show, but it becomes a whole different issue when the actress becomes the target.

According to PopBuzz, the online abuse against Grace forced her to delete her Instagram and Twitter accounts.
