Some adults are just sick. Thankfully at least one child made sure he wasn't a victim.
Orlando karate instructor Stephannie Figueroa was arrested last week on charges of attempted lewd or lascivious conduct, solicitation and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, showing a minor obscene material, and child abuse after apparently attempted to begin a sexual relationship with an 11-year-old boy in her class.
The student's mother opened the Kik messaging app on his phone and was horrified to find several lewd messages sent by the martial arts teacher.
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
