“Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” by Ryan Murphy is the No. 1 show on Netflix. but after online backlash Netflix decided to remove its LGBTQ tag from the “shockumentary” series.
Portrayed by Evan Peters in the series, Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys in Wisconsin between 1978 and 1991, according to People, many of whom he lured home from gay nightclubs. He engaged in cannibalism or necrophilia with some of the bodies.
“I feel like it fetishizes this whole horrible moment in Milwaukee history. It shouldn’t be looked at that way, it just feels completely wrong,” drag performer B.J. Daniels told WISN. “I know a lot of my friends, and a lot of people who lived through this period, will not be watching it. They will not be putting money into somebody’s pocket that is literally disturbing the graves of victims.”
Netflix also tagged the Dahmer series with “Ominous” and Dark,” earlier this year Netflix released Conversations With A Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes about the prolific serial killer who murdered 33 boys in Chicago which is also tagged “Ominous” and Dark, but was not tagged LGBTQ
