The families themselves do not agree about it being respectful to them.

I did hear that, and was going to mention it. I'd be interested in hearing from someone else who's seen it what they thought. To me, it dealt with the victims, the families, and Glenda Cleveland as much you could in the last three or four episodes. I haven't read the piece you link to but will. You can't really tell the story without lots of Dahmer.

Maybe there's more, but the piece you link to isn't a sweeping indictment from the families; it's one piece written by one person.

I don't need to watch it, I lived it

When I saw some of the show, it bothered me, especially when I saw myself — when I saw my name come across the screen and this lady saying verbatim exactly what I said.

If I didn't know any better, I would've thought it was me. Her hair was like mine, she had on the same clothes. That's why it felt like reliving it all over again. It brought back all the emotions I was feeling back then.

I was never contacted about the show. I feel like Netflix should've asked if we mind or how we felt about making it. They didn't ask me anything. They just did it.

She says they used her words verbatim, and the actress looked just like her; but she's angry because she wasn't contacted ahead of time.
