Netflix has removed the LGBTQ tag that was in the description of the new popular series ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story‘ after receiving backlash online.
The show was categorized under the LGBTQ title, which considering the context, confused a lot of people.
It is a dramatization of the story of Jeffrey Dahmer, the serial killer who was convicted of the horrific killing of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. Dahmer also admitted to being a cannibal and eating the flesh of his victims.
He would drug and sexually assault his victims – even sometimes performing twisted experiments on them.
Fans took to TikTok to share their views with some saying:
“This is not the representation we’re looking for.”
Another person claimed it ‘associates us with a literal serial unaliver, cannibal, amongst other things I’m not sure I can say on this app’.
The serial killer was sentenced to 15 consecutive life sentences but was beaten to death by an inmate in 1994.
The new Netflix series starring Evan Peters, has received mixed reactions online, with some people not able to make it through the first episode and warning others of the graphic content and to watch with caution as the show may impact their mental health.
