Jeffrey Dahmer victim’s mother condemned Evan Peter’s Golden Globe Award

The mother of Dahmer victim Tony Hughes, Shirley, felt that Peters should have said that Hollywood should stop telling and glorifying stories about killers while accepting his Golden Globe win for Best Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series award.

She also criticized the actor for not mentioning the victims during his acceptance speech, who pointed out that the show simply went ahead to add to their grief as they had to watch their reality all over again. Mother of Tony Hughes said, “It’s a shame that people can take our tragedy and make money. The victims never saw a cent. We go through these emotions every day,”

Tron and Tron: Legacy are available to stream in their entirety on Disney+.  Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is streaming on Netflix.
