Why Did The LGBTQ+ Tag Removed From Jeffrey Dahmer series?
Fans voiced their disapproval at Netflix for placing the new true-crime drama based on Jeffrey Dahmer under the LGBTQ+ area of the streaming service.
- The film Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which was released on September 21 and is a fictional version of the life story of serial murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, was based on the true events of his life.
- The atrocities committed by Dahmer between the years 1978 and 1991 are detailed throughout the series, as are his arrest and subsequent trial, both of which led to the revelation of his horrible deeds.
- The Milwaukee serial murderer was responsible for the gruesome deaths of a total of 17 male victims.
- The majority of them were gay males of different races.
- Dahmer was arrested in 1992 and sentenced to life in prison, where he was ultimately put to death.
If I need to stay in my lane absolutely tell me but anyone else think it's pretty gross of @netflix to list Dahmer under #LGBTQ, especially when the True Crime tag would have worked? pic.twitter.com/wPzwc2oOKP

- Evan Peters, who previously starred in American Horror Story, will be seen in the role of the titular character.
- To the displeasure of the customers, the streaming service made the decision to place the series under the LGBTQ+ category.
- One user tweeted the following: “If I need to stay in my lane, totally tell me, but anybody else thinks it's really sick of Netflix to include Dahmer under LGBTQ, especially when the True Crime category would have worked?”
- The Jeffrey Dahmer series is now tagged with the LGBTQ+ category on Netflix. “I am at a complete loss for words,” one user of Twitter commented.
- Another person chimed in, asking, “Why did Netflix believe that branding their documentary on Jeffery Dahmer with the “LGBT+” label would be a good idea?”
- Since then, the streaming service has removed the LGBTQ+ labeling that was previously attached to the series.
- Monster has been criticized for its insensitivity to the victims and the families of those who were murdered.
- One member of the victim's family has spoken out, claiming that watching the series has “retraumatized” them.
