Netflix’s Jeffery Dahmer limited series has taken America by storm. The show chronicles the life of Jeffery Dahmer and some of the 17 men he killed between 1978 and 1991. While the show has been praised primarily for its performances, others have criticized the show, calling it essentially a slap in the face to the families of Dahmer’s victims’ families.
Among those who have fallen out of favor with the show is none other than Boosie, who recently took to IG, where he shared a message to the black community calling for a boycott of the show, largely because the majority of Dahmer’s victims were black .
“We black people must ban this Jeffery Dahmer film. That’s some sick shit what he did to our race,” Boosie said. “This is some sick shit. We need to boycott this damn movie from Netflix. Boosie then said that the victims’ families should be paid by the show. “The victims’ families should be paid out of every dollar Netflix has made. That’s bloody sick.”
Boosie is one of many people who have a problem with the new series. The families of the victims expressed their disapproval of the series and said they didn’t get a penny from Netflix. Eric Perry, the cousin of Rita Isbel, whose brother was murdered by Dahmer, took to Twitter after the re-enactment of his cousin’s testimony at Dahmer’s trial went viral.
“I don’t tell anyone what to watch, I know true crime media is huge but if you’re really curious about the victims my family (the Isbells) is mad at this show,” Eric tweeted. “It’s retraumatizing over and over and for what? How many movies/shows/documentaries do we need?”
