Why Is America OBSESSED with LGBTQ Icon Jeffrey Dahmer?!
The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has taken Netflix by storm. Dahmer, AKA the Milwaukee Cannibal, AKA the Milwaukee Monster, was a serial killer and sex offender who murdered and dismembered seventeen men and boys between the 70s and 90s.
There is controversy, though. Netflix initially tagged the show featuring this LGBTQ icon “LGBTQ.” This prompted a not-so-positive reaction from the gay community, and of course, Netflix caved and took it down.
The decision to categorize “Dahmer” as LGBTQ content ignited controversy on social media, with many subscribers condemning Netflix for the decision (via the Los Angeles Times). The tag is normally used to spotlight shows such as “Heartstopper” and “Sex Education,” both of which include LGBTQ characters and subject matter in a positive light. “Dahmer” technically does feature an LGBTQ character since the serial killer was a gay man, but as one subscriber wrote on TikTok, “This is not the representation we’re looking for.”
The question that no one is asking, though, is what would Jeff think of all this? Dave and the crew discussed on the show.
