‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ stars Evan Peters, Niecy Nash, Molly Ringwald, Richard Jenkins, Colin Ford. It’s a 10-episode series streaming on Netflix. Rita Isbell, the sister of one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, stated that the show is insensitive and reckless. Boosie BadAzz said that black people should put an end to the show.
According to reports, she said that this is Netflix’s greed, and they should have donated some amount of money to the victims’ children and grandchildren.
The victims’ families are upset as they are getting horror again by viewing the same thing again, with some kids getting emotional breakdowns. Journo Anne E Schwartz, who was the first to report the crimes, said portraying the police as homophobic is not right.
The show was first listed under LGBTQ, which was heavily slammed. Later, Netflix withdrew the tag. Though, all these controversies have given advantage to Netflix, and the documentary series has the top first-week watching figures for any new show since June 2021. In the initial week, 196.2 million viewed the series and is the No.1 TV Show in more than 60 countries.
Jeffrey Dahmer was accused in 1992 for slaying 17 boys, cannibalism and necrophilia. According to Netflix, the series reveals the unscrupulous crimes done to victims due to the systemic racism and the police’s inadequacy that permitted Jeffrey Dahmer to not stop his murderous spree for more than a decade.
