Criticism of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” for its “disrespectful” lyrics to Jeffrey Dahmer



For her “disrespectful” lyrics in Dark Horse, which “romanticize” serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, Katy Perry is receiving criticism from the public.

This is Bad Reminiscing

Oh, to be 13 years old once more, bouncing around my room with a hairbrush in hand and singing along to the latest single from Katy Perry, “Dark Horse.”

However, until over 10 years after its debut, many of us were unaware that one of its lines has a more darker connotation and specifically refers to an American serial killer.

Dahmer’s atrocities have gained increased attention as a result of a new Netflix series called Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, and as a result, music lovers have been quick to criticize Perry for her contentious lyrics.

Perry’s fourth studio album, Prism, opened with the promotional track “Dark Horse,” which featured rapper Juicy J.

Although the song was first released in 2013, it has recently gained popularity once more in light of the Netflix series that highlights Dahmer’s misdeeds.

Juicy J sings the phrase, “She’s a beast/ I name her Karma/ She eats your heart like Jeffrey Dahmer,” in the song.

Between 1978 and 1991, Dahmer, a notorious serial murderer, killed a total of seventeen people.

He admitted to killing the men and boys as well as dismembering some of them and consuming their flesh, giving him the nicknames the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster.

Since then, music lovers have used social media to denounce the “vile” line.

In a song, Katy Perry and Juicy J literally said, “she eats your heart out like Jeffrey Dahmer,” which one Twitter user found to be insulting asf to the family.

Another person commented: “Juicy J is sick for forcing people, especially young children, to chant that man’s name and Katy Perry is equally ill for permitting that phrase in her song. I didn’t know who Jeffrey Dahmer was until last week.

“She eats your heart out like Jeffrey Dahmer” is a line from the song Dark Horse that still makes me angry, and I have to force my daughter to change the station because it is so disrespectful to the families of the victims. I hope people remember them while watching Netflix. Sorry for their losses,” a third person said.

Apparently, there are more artists…

Dark Horse is not the only song to make mention of the Milwaukee monster, though.

He has also received criticism online for putting his name in the songs of Kesha, Eminem, and Marilyn Manson.

Use your finger to stir my tea, and for dessert, I’ll suck your teeth. Be too sweet, and you’ll be gone. Yeah, I’ll pull a Jeffrey Dahmer. That’s a line from Kesha’s song “Cannibal.”

However, some have suggested that the musicians shouldn’t be getting as much flak given how long ago the songs were published.

People are just now learning about Jeffrey Dahmer thanks to the Netflix series, and they’re offended by a line from Katy Perry’s song “Dark Horse” that was released ten years ago, one person wondered.

One person said, “Are Twitter users really attempting to cancel Katy Perry and Kesha for mentioning Jeffrey Dahmer on their songs almost 10 years after they were released? [They] truly only found out about Jeffrey bc of Netflix in 2022,” another said.

In addition to attempting to give the victims of the serial killer a voice, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has brought attention to the “systemic prejudice and police prejudices” that allowed Dahmer to get away with his murders for so long.


Kevin Feige Confirms Spider-Man 4 with Tom Holland



Kevin Feige verified the information about Thanos resetting the cosmos in an interview with Entertainment Weekly (via UNILAD). Yet we’re not grumbling about it. Official confirmation of Tom Holland’s participation in Spider-Man 4 has come from Kevin Feige, president of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, fans and viewers of the MCU have been relieved about the news while also being eager for more of the iconic superhero!

Making Headlines

Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland’s final performance, was released in 2021 and was absolutely fantastic. Feige said, probably in reference to Spider-Man 4 and No Way Home, “We were all treating (No Way Home) as the end of a franchise. If we were fortunate enough to explore these characters once more, we believe you would see a completely different version. If we had anything to say about it, this would be huge news!

A Surprising Return

This is significant news since when Holland finished his first trilogy with the critically acclaimed and financially successful Spider-Man: No Way Home, the future of his Spider-Man tenure was in some doubt. A multiverse-spanning, multiple Spider-Man-starring epic, that movie was an incredible smash hit, grossing more than $1 billion worldwide (the first cinematic release to do so), and energizing fans with the reunion of both Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield in their respective forms as Peter Parker.

Spider-Man 4’s narrative or release date remain unknown at this time, but the tiny symbiote fragment still present in the MCU may have a significant impact. Naturally, Spider-Man won’t miss out on Avengers Secret Wars, Marvel’s upcoming major event, which is set to take place in 2026. Yet another huge announcement that we’re all waiting for and something that we can look forward to, hopefully we can get our money’s worth when a new movie comes out!

Whoopi Goldberg Retracts Her Insult on The View




Whoopi Goldberg recently got into some trouble after calling the Romani people an insensitive name during an episode of The View.

“Wokeness” is complicated

The actor-turned-talk show host claimed during a discussion about the late President Donald Trump that his fans believed he was ‘gypped’ in the 2020 election.

Unbeknownst to Goldberg, the phrase “gypped,” which meaning “to rip someone off,” is probably originated from the word “gypsy,” an insult used to designate the nomadic Romani people, according to Merriam-Webster.

Social media users reacted angrily to Goldberg’s usage of the phrase as a result.

Whoopi Goldberg’s apology is well-deserved, according to one user. “Gypsies are a real class of people with their own unique hardships, and they are most often stereotyped by ignorant pretentious entitled elitists individuals like Whoopi Goldberg, and it shows,” the user added.

“I don’t know how many more’slip ups’ by Whoopi need to be done before the ABC Network takes a position,” a second stated. “I’m not even sure why The View is still there given the nonsense they’ve said and done. I guess they condone it to let it to continue.”

Shortly after the show aired, The View’s official Twitter account published an apologetic video in response to people criticizing the presenter.

You know, when you get to a certain age, you start using words you remember saying or knowing from when you were a kid. That’s what I did today, and I shouldn’t have.

“I should have thought about it a little longer before I said it, but I didn’t, and I should have said ‘cheated,’ but I used another word. And I’m really, very sorry,” the 67-year-old actor continued.

She apologized, trying not to smile as she said.

She received harsh criticism for her apology as a result.

“Don’t trust her. She’s lying yet again. She meant precisely what she stated,” one user commented.

A second person said, “Oops, I did it again.”

Some social media users also noted that they were unaware that the term “gypped,” or the incorrect spelling “jipped,” was insulting.

In 2013, University of Texas at Austin professor Ian Hancock, whose Romani parents were born in Britain, described how the phrase affects people of Romani heritage to NPR.

Many frequently claim to him that they were unaware that the word “gypped” had anything to do with gypsies or that it is insulting, especially when the word is spoken rather than read, he added.

“That’s okay. You didn’t know but now you do. So stop using it. That may mean nothing to you, but when we hear it, it still hurts,” is my reply to them.

So there you have it.

Baby boomers who are ranting on social media about how the ‘awake’ world has gone insane, take note: it is no longer appropriate to compare Romani people to liars, cheaters, and thieves.

When you’re more than willing to hurt their feelings, don’t whine about how “wokeness” has wounded your feelings.
