‘Dahmer’ co-creator denies show is ‘sympathetic’ to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer

The co-creator of Netflix’s “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” doesn’t think the series is “sympathetic” to Jeffrey Dahmer “at all.”

“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 at the premiere of “The Watcher” on Wednesday evening, responding to the intense backlash the show has garnered.

“We tried to show an objective portrait as possible. We did our homework.”
