Nearly ten years after its debut, Juicy J’s verse in Katy Perry’s 2013 hit song “Dark Horse” has drawn criticism for the lyrics it contains.
As a result, some music fans have taken to social media to criticize songs like “Horse” that referenced Dahmer’s crimes in a favorable or downplayed manner.
As the Netflix special “Dahmer” gains popularity and a new audience learns about the serial killer’s heinous acts, some are calling for accountability for the insensitive lyrics.
“She’s a beast/ I call her Karma/ She eats your heart like Jeffrey Dahmer,” Juicy J raps on “Dark Horse.” Pop star Kesha is also under fire for her lyrics that refer to Dahmer in “Cannibal.”
