Netflix Making Changes to How They Depict Smoking

Netflix is set to snuff out smoking scenes in some of its promotions.

The streaming content giant announced earlier this week that it will eliminate smoking scenes across all of its original shows aimed at younger viewers.

Netflix says future shows won’t have smoking scenes if it has a TV-14 rating and same for films rated PG-13 or below.

Researchers reportedly found that tobacco use scenes were most prevalent on Netflix, adding that season 2 of “Stranger Things” was the biggest offender.
