The new series on Netflix has received a lot of hype but the creators made up a pretty important part of ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ and fans are shocked.
It’s a dramatization of the story of Jeffrey Dahmer, a 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.
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 finding the content too disturbing to get passed the first episode and others being hooked.
One of Dahmer’s neighbors, Glenda Cleveland played by Niecy Nash, played a key part in the show.
Cleveland lived next door to Dahmer and suspected something was off, so contacted the police who unfortunately brushed her off and that is one of the reasons Dahmer got away with his crimes for so many years.
However, according to local newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Cleveland did not live next door to the serial killer. She lived in a completely separate building.

The show’s consulting producer, Rashad Robinson, said that it is a “story of deep and systemic injustice, of people who were harmed and all the ways in which society failed them.”
