Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story To Cross 1 Billion Hours
As of now, the names of the criminals whose stories are to be covered in the upcoming seasons haven’t been disclosed yet. Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is Netflix’s record-breaking series and the numbers confirm it. As per Collider, the series is projected to reach the 1 Billion mark in the coming weeks. As of now, the show has accumulated 900 Million+ view hours making it one of the most-watched English-language shows on the streamer.
The two-season order was announced alongside the renewal news of The Watcher for a second season. The Monster anthology was created by Ian Brennan and Ryan Murphy who have also developed other shows for the streaming giant. This includes popular shows like The Politician, Ratched, and Hollywood. However, the renewal news isn’t surprising. Back in October, the streaming platform announced that both The Watcher and Monster were reaching sky-high viewing numbers.
Netflix Removes LGBTQ Tag From The Monster Series
However, Monster’s success isn’t devoid of controversies. The series received a lot of backlash from the LGBTQ community for tagging the series with the label. It was categorized under the LGBTQ tag for two days straight.
However, it was officially removed by September 23 following the uproar from the LGBTQ community. Technically, Dahmer does feature an LGBTQ character since the serial killer was a gay man. However, fans weren’t happy with the representation as one wrote, “This is not the representation we’re looking for.”
Another wrote, “Netflix, I implore you to please reconsider having Dahmer with the LGBTQ tag, especially as one of its tags right when you open the app.”
Ryan Murphy Didn’t Approve Of LGBTQ Tag Removal
However, the creator Ryan Murphy shared his disappointment with the removal of the LGBTQ tag on Netflix. He said, “There was a moment on Netflix where they removed the LGBTQ tag from Dahmer and I didn’t like it and I asked why they did that and they said because people were upset because it was an upsetting story. I was like, ‘Well, yeah.’ But it was a story of a gay man and more importantly, his gay victims.”
