This week, the co-creator of Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story spoke out to address claims the show was "sympathetic" to the crazed serial killer.

"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," Ian Brennan told Page Six. "We tried to show an objective portrait as possible. We did our homework."
