Netflix and Disney Adds Content Warning to ‘Stranger Things’ and Obi Wan Kenobi After Uvalde School Shooting 

Due to the general but chilling similarities the opening scenes of Stranger Things 4 and Obi Wan Kenobi bear to the recent mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Netflix and Disney has issued a content warning.

Netflix added a warning card to “Stranger Things 4” after Tuesday’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The first episode of Stranger Things 4 features the aftermath of an incident where main character Eleven appears to use telekinetic powers to kill everyone in a laboratory, including children.

A Netflix spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter: “We decided to add the card given the proximity of the premiere to this tragedy – and because the opening scene is very graphic.”

Meanwhile, Disney+ has added a content warning to the premiere episode of the new series “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” but the late addition came on Friday, after many “Star Wars” fans were both perplexed and a bit upset after the premiere debuted on Thursday night.

For some viewers, releasing Obi-Wan Kenobi without a content warning ahead of the episode was a massive blunder, considering the parallels the scene has to the events of the horrific mass shooting in Texas this week, which left 19 children and two teachers dead. “I feel like after this week Disney REALLY should’ve put a warning on this episode,” one person tweeted. “I was not prepared for that.”

The warning will only show for viewers in the US.

After the Uvalde shooting on Tuesday, Lifetime delayed the release of TV movie The Bad Seed Returns, about a murderous high school student, while CBS pulled the season finale of procedural drama FBI, originally scheduled to air that evening. The episode reportedly included a storyline involving a student’s possible involvement in a deadly robbery.
