The mother of Tony Hughes, one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, has slammed Ariana Grande for saying that the serial killer, who brutally murdered over a dozen men, was her fantasy dinner party guest.

Dahmer enticed Tony, a deaf and nonverbal gay model, to his flat on May 24, 1991, where he was killed and mutilated.

The Thank U, Next singer faced outrage after appearing on an episode of the Audio Show Podcrushed hosted by ‘Gossip Girl’ and ‘You’ star Penn Badgley.

During the interview, she revealed to a ‘young fan’ that she dreamt about dining with the murderer, who raped, mutilated, and killed at least 17 boys and men between 1978 and 1991.

Shirley Hughes, the mother of one of the serial killer’s victims, has responded to the actress, stating: “To me, it appears that she is sick in her mind. Saying you would have liked to have dinner with him is neither classy nor witty. It’s also not something you should say to young people, as she claims,’ Shirley Hughes told TMZ.

She was also disturbed when the pop star laughed during the podcast about her obsession with Dahmer.

Ariana’s macabre admission came after she revealed that she had been ‘infatuated with serial killers’ since a young age.

“I mean, Jeffrey Dahmer is really fascinating,” she is alleged to have told the audience. 

Tony’s sister Barbara said that the remarks glorify Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Monster or the Milwaukee Cannibal.

Before beating to death by a fellow inmate in 1994, Jeffrey Dahmer was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and psychotic disorder. 

The Hughes family was not the only one to criticize Ariana’s remarks. Fans also called the singer’s comments ‘vile’ and ‘offensive’, and labeled her as ‘tone deaf’.
