Three Celebrities Are Currently Facing Backlash
Even though multiple artists have mentioned Dahmer’s name within their music, it seems like Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Eminem are the only ones currently in the hot seat. Many have taken it to the net to go back and forth on their opinions. Some feel like referencing Jeffrey Dahmer is not only disgusting but insensitive to victims. On the other hand, some feel like time has passed and the artist didn’t name drop to glorify the killer.
This is so stupid.
1. Double entendres are very commonly used in music. They’re not glorifying the murders.
2. How is a Juicy J lyric getting Katy Perry Cancelled?
3. Out of all the Juicy J lyrics to cancel someone for this is the one you chose? pic.twitter.com/mcWsHP8GFT

why isn’t anyone calling out Katy Perry for allowing such a vile & terrible lyric to be included in one of her hit songs? Jeffrey was a notorious serial killer & Katy CHOSE to romanticize his criminal & inhumane actions. I actually feel sick to my stomach. She NEEDS to apologize. pic.twitter.com/vIFmI0MNPL

If people are shocked that Jeffrey Dahmer was referenced a Katy Perry/Kesha song – nobody show them Eminem up until Relapse…
— Fletch 🐝 (@AarontheManc) September 27, 2022
I just learned who Jeffrey Dahmer is and I knew his name was familiar because Kesha put his name in her lyrics for her song “Cannibal” I need to delete that song now. Why the heck do we give fandom to these sickos?! Of course Netflix makes a series about it. Murders make the 💵

Reactions From The Net
After watching Dahmer, one thing I realised that Jeffery dahmer was definitely such a successful serial killer because of american police having a racism problem, not because he was brilliant. So basically Jeff is an example of white privileged guy.#DahmerNetflix

I’m so heartbroken for every one of Dahmer’s victims but Tony’s story is just devastating. All he wanted was to model & be LOVED. If he ain’t go back for those keys we would’ve seen him out here killing the modeling industry 🥺💔 #jeffreydahmer #tonyhughes pic.twitter.com/v3wq4CuwI0
