    Mother of Jeffrey Dahmer Victim Tony Hughes Speaks Out Against Netflix Limited Series

    Tony Hughes was among more than a dozen men murdered by Jeffrey Dahmer. The aspiring model’s mother has condemned the recently released Netflix series about the serial killer who took her son’s life. She was widely shocked at how the show was made in the first place.

    Netflix’s biographical crime show ‘Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story‘ is currently enjoying the number one stop on the streaming platform. Created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, the show follows serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer who was on a killing spree in the 70s and 80s.

    One of the episodes in the show was about Tony Hughes. Many tweeted that the particular episode about Hughes was “gruelling to watch.” Burford’s performance as Hughes has been praised as compassionate and haunting.

    Shirley Hughes told the Guardian that she hadn’t seen all of Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’, which focuses one of its 10 episodes on her son. Tony was deaf and just 31 years old at the time of his slaying in 1991. Nonetheless, she’d concluded that “it didn’t happen like that”.

    “I don’t see how they can do that,” Hughes said, before adding that it was difficult to talk about Tony’s murder and politely ending the call. “I don’t see how they can use our names and put stuff out like that out there.”

    Now 85, the still-grieving mother joined a growing chorus of people whose relatives were murdered by Dahmer. They have mounted a loud backlash against Netflix’s dramatization of Dahmer’s killing spree in Milwaukee.

    The show also depicts how Dahmer got away with his killing spree for so long. It was because authorities ignored the concerns of Black and other minority community members. This has faced criticism for not consulting the families of the slain.

    Perry one of the victim’s cousin said that Netflix wasn’t required to consult victims’ families because the events it portrays are public record. However, the way things went down re-traumatized the loved ones of those murdered by Dahmer, Perry added.
