Shirley Hughes, the mother of deaf and mute victim Tony, said it was upsetting to see Netflix and internet retailers make money off of their loved ones’ deaths.
Ms. Hughes begged people not to dress like her son’s killer for Halloween after her son was lured into Dahmer’s apartment and killed there.
According to Hughes, the outfits were “evil” and “traumatizing” for the relatives of the victims. She asserted: “If the show hadn’t been streamed by Netflix… No family would experience a second victimization. And this year’s Jeffrey Dahmer Netflix costumes would be a thing of the past.”
The relative of one of Dahmer’s victims, Errol Lindsey, Eric Perry, tweeted his opposition to the Netflix series.
He also mentioned: “True crime media is generally acknowledged to exist. But if you’re really interested in learning about the victims, my family is furious over the program. Over and over again, it traumatizes, but why? How many films, TV shows, or documentaries do we require?”
Rita Isbell, Errol’s sister, called the show “harsh and reckless” and claimed that Netflix was “making money from of tragedy” in an interview.

“Watching a genuine story from the comfort of our own homes while getting a peek into the inner workings of these criminals is extremely interesting. They are therefore like us but not like us.
“As people who are functioning well in society, we have empathy. We can think about other people from their perspective. And when we examine some of these criminals, what’s intriguing is how like they are to us in some respects while still being extremely different from us in others.
