Netflix to cut smoking in future original programming

Netflix to cut smoking in future original programming

From this point forward, they vow to omit smoking entirely from all shows rated PG-13/TV-14 and lower, as well as from their higher-rated programs, presumably counting Stranger Things among them.

Netflix and Baskin-Robbins have joined forces to celebrate the third season premiere of Stranger Things and National Ice Cream Month, all in one go.

Below, the best reactions to Stranger Things season three (no spoilers, promise).

Netflix strongly supports artistic expression.

Other shows highlighted for tobacco use in the Truth Initiative's report were ABC's Modern Family and Amazon's Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, according to Variety.

For the report, Truth Initiative kept track not only of cigarette smoking but also of the use of any tobacco products. "In addition, starting later this year, smoking information will be included as part of our ratings on the Netflix service so our members can make informed choices about what they watch". "We're seeing a pervasive reemergence of smoking imagery across screens that is glamorising and re-normalising a deadly addiction and putting young people squarely in the crosshairs of the tobacco industry".

A spokesperson for Truth Initiative did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. Like how everyone back in the '80s smoked, right?

Skins based on characters for Stranger Things have also leaked out and they include the Demogorgan and Chief Hopper, both of these were discovered earlier by dataminers. Sounds like a loophole to me.
