13 Reasons Why star Grace Saif has quit Instagram after being trolled on social media over her character Ani Achola.
The character is a new student introduced for season 3 and serves as the show’s new narrator. Fans of the series reacted negatively to Ani and how she is unrelated to the events of the first two seasons, but there are those who have taken it too far with personal attacks on the star.
At the moment, her Instagram account is still ‘active’ with over 23,000 followers, but there are no posts or profile picture.
Co-star Timothy Granaderos (who plays Montgomery de la Cruz) recently defended Saif on his own Instagram, writing: “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 introduction 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.”
