Mom of Jeffrey Dahmer victim slams Ariana Grande for ‘sick’ comments about serial killer

Mom of Jeffrey Dahmer victim slams Ariana Grande for ‘sick’ comments about serial killer

Ariana Grande revealed Jeffrey Dahmer was her 'dream dinner date' during an interview

The mom of a Jeffrey Dahmer victim has criticized Ariana Grande for her 'sick' comments about the serial killer.

Grande appeared on the Podcrushed podcast on June 12 to discuss her life and career, however, one moment in particular stuck out in the interview to people.

The Wicked star recalled a moment when she was asked who would be her 'dream dinner date'.

Many of us may have been asked - or even thought about - this at some point.

Perhaps you'd like to have a conversation with someone as knowledgeable as David Attenborough, or famous historic figures like Oscar Wilde or Abraham Lincoln.

And you would think that if you were a celebrity you would have a PR-friendly answer ready - should the occasion arise.

However, in what some have called a 'weird' move, Grande listed Dahmer as someone she'd like to have dinner with.

Recalling the event, she told the Podcrushed hosts: "I was infatuated with serial killers when I was younger.

"It was in between me being Cat [on teen sitcom Sam & Cat] and pop stuff, so it was like a younger group, and they were with parents, and someone said, 'If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be?'"

"I was like, 'Oh honey, you're so cute'."

Grande then revealed that she had asked her parents if she could give the 'real' answer.

She continued to say: "They were like, 'Sure, what's the answer?' and I was like, 'I mean, Jeffrey Dahmer is pretty fascinating.'

"I think I would have loved to have met him. You know, maybe with a third party or someone involved. But I have questions."

Needless to say, Grande's admission hasn't gone down very well, as the mother of one of Dahmer's victims, Tony Hughes, has since spoken out about her comments.

Hughes, who was deaf and non-verbal, was 31 years old when he was killed by Dahmer in 1991.

Shirley Hughes told TMZ on Thursday (June 27): "To me, it seems like she's sick in her mind.

"It's not fancy or funny to say you would have wanted to do dinner with him.

"It's also not something you should say to young people, which she says she did."

According to the publication, Tony's sister, Barbara, also said she'd like to see an apology from the singer, claiming that her remarks glamorize Dahmer.

Between 1978 and 1991, Dahmer murdered, dismembered and cannibalised 17 men and boys.

Fourteen of Dahmer's victims were men of color.

The serial killer was later sentenced to 16 life terms before being beaten to death in prison in 1994.

UNILAD has reached out to representatives of Ariana Grande for comment.
