Following his renowned portrayal in the Netflix thriller Monster: The Jeffery Dahmer Story, Evan Peters won the Golden Globe, which has drawn criticism from the mother of one of Jeffrey Dahmer‘s victims.

After the ceremony, Shirley Hughes talked to TMZ and voiced her disappointment in the awards organization and Peters for not using his time on stage to honor the victims and families of the serial killer. Tony Hughes, Shirley Hughes’s son and aspiring model was killed on May 24, 1991, by the serial killer.

In September 2022, the Jeffrey Dahmer Story debuted on the streaming platform, reliving the life of Milwaukee serial killer Dahmer, including his early years, adult crimes, methods of capture, and subsequent court case.

Since its debut, the 10-part series has drawn harsh criticism for “retraumatizing” the relatives of those who died as a result of his actions while terrifying viewers.

As Dahmer became one of the most-watched limited series in Netflix’s history, American Horror Story star Evan, 35, thanked Glee creator Ryan Murphy for “allowing me be part of your great vision again” during Tuesday night’s Golden Globes.

In response to the criticism, he acknowledged that it was a “tough one to make,” but he believes that some “good” can come from it. 

According to Shirley, who is played by Karen Malina White in the show, Evan should have remembered the victims during his speech.

 ‘There’s a lot of sick people around the world,’ she said as per TMZ.

“People gaining acting jobs by portraying murders keeps the fixation alive and this makes sick people thrive on the celebrity,” says the author.

Ian Brennan, the show’s co-creator, was compelled to defend it in response to the show’s harsh criticism. 

“I think we show a human being. He’s monstrously human and he’s monstrously monstrous and that’s what we wanted to sort of unpack… We tried to show an objective portrait as possible. We did our homework.” “It’s interesting when horrific stories like that resonate with people. I think it’s a way for people to approach scary things about themselves, watch it (being) portrayed on the screen,” Brennan stated as per Page Six.

After being brutally murdered by another prisoner, Dahmer passed away at the age of 34. Ryan Murphy, the show’s creator, admitted they spent “a very long time” researching the matter. He claimed to have asked 20 friends and family members for their opinions but received no response.
