Ariana Grande Jeffrey Dahmer

Ariana Grande is getting dragged for saying her dream dinner date is Jeffrey Dahmer

‘Joking about wanting to have dinner with him is sick and horribly offensive to the victims’ families’

Ariana Grande is getting dragged after revealing on a podcast that she had once told younger fans at a Q&A that her dream dinner date guest is Jeffrey Dahmer.

Last week, on Penn Badgley’s Podcrushed (where her voice weirdly changed pitch), around 30 mins into part two of the interview Ariana Grande said: “I was infatuated with serial killers when I was younger.” 

She then said the Q&A where she revealed her Jeffrey Dahmer fascination: “It was in between me being Cat (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?'”

After the fan asked the question, Ariana said to the parents: “Mum and dad is it okay if I give the real answer? And they were like, sure what’s the answer? And I was like, Jeffrey Dahmer’s pretty fascinating.’

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

The internet has backlashed against this comment with a Reddit user saying: “Joking about wanting to have dinner with him is sick and horribly offensive to the victims’ families, who are still alive and affected by the tragedy.”

Another Reddit user wrote: “Instead of sharing something meaningful with her younger fans, mentioning someone who inspired her or had a positive impact on her, she chose to try to be ‘edgy’ and ‘quirky’.”

Another tweeted: “Telling small children that your dream dinner date is with a cannibalistic mass murderer is normal?”

The podcast then goes onto say that Ariana’s mum, Joan, is really into horror so that is where the singer’s fascination with true crime may have come from.

Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in 1991 for the murder and disarmament of 17 males. Evan Peters recently portrayed him in a recent Netflix series about the criminal.

Ariana Grande hasn’t currently hasn’t responded to the backlash against her comment about Jeffrey Dahmer.
