“13 Reason Why,” the new Netflix original that Selena Gomez is producing, got high praise from The Hollywood Reporter ahead of its March 31 release on the streaming service. While it’s difficult to say whether or not reviewer Daniel Feinberg actually liked the series, he certainly said all the right things to get a quote from his piece used as a blurb in future promotional materials.

Selena Gomez is humble enough to give credit where credit is due, but it’s starting to sound like she hasn’t earned the right to be dubbed executive producer of her upcoming Netflix series, “Thirteen Reasons Why.” The excitement from the show’s teaser released on Wednesday is now overshadowed by one simple Instagram post. Selena shared a photo from the day she pitched the show to Netflix and ended up crediting the entire thing to her mom and to the book’s author, Jay Asher.
“My mom found this book in 2009 and worked her ass off to make it with me, guide me and tell this story authentically,” she writes on Instagram. “The only reason, beside Jay this project was even made”
Take a look at her post below.
What do you think Selena actually contributed to her “passion project?”
