Although serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer is long since deceased, his name has once again made headlines, this time in collaboration with pop stars Katy Perry and Kesha.

In the wake of “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” released just under a week ago on Netflix, climbing to the top spot on the streaming service, fans are criticizing two songs, sung by Perry and Kesha, which made crude references to Dahmer’s cannibalistic acts.

Perry’s song “Dark Horse”, featuring Juicy J, was released in 2013, while Kesha’s “Cannibal” debuted in 2010.

KATY PERRY SLAMMED FOR ABORTION RIGHTS TWEET AFTER ENDORSING RICK CARUSO

In Perry’s song, the lyrics in question aren’t actually sung by the “American Idol” judge herself, but rather rapped by Juicy J. He says, “Uh, that’s a beast/I call her Karma (come back)/She eat your hard like Jeffrey Dahmer (whoa!)/Be careful/Try not to lead her (mm).”

One person wrote on Twitter, “It still upsets me when I hear the line to the Dark Horse song ‘She eat your heart like Jeffrey Dahmer’ and I still spin my girl at the station. It’s so disrespectful to the families of the victims. I hope people will remember this while watching Netflix. Sorry for their losses”, while another tweeted, “Why does no one call Katy Perry for allowing such vile speech and terrible to be included in one of her hit songs? Jeffrey was a notorious serial killer and Katy CHOSEN to romanticize his criminal and inhumane actions. I really have a stomach ache. She MUST apologize. “

While the reference to Jeffrey Dahmer is actually made by Juicy J on the "Black Horse" title, several people are attacking Katy Perry for her choice to use the reference to the serial killer in her song.
