A new TikTok trend is leaving a bad taste in users’ mouths.

The so-called “Jeffrey Dahmer challenge” on TikTok, for which people film their reaction to gruesome crime scene photos, is sparking outrage online, reports Indy100.

Dahmer — who killed and dismembered 17 young men and boys between 1978 and 1991 — has seen a resurgence in pop culture after Netflix released a horror film starring Evan Peters as the infamous serial killer.

According to TikTok, the search term “Jeffrey Dahmer victim polaroids” has gained 531.2 million views.

The video platform popular among teens has taken steps to remove the more gruesome images, but one user managed to post an edited clip with the title “Jeffrey Dahmer real polaroids” and captioned it as “EDITED REPOST!! [Because] TikTok took down the unedited one with 130k views.” 

The video has gained 4,700,000 views.

The Post reached out to TikTok for comment.

Countless social media users have spoken out against the sickening trend.

“The new Jeffery Dahmer show is so f–king grisly. i cannot believe it happened irl & what happened to all those deceased victims what a sick man he was,” tweeted one user. “What’s even worse is that there are a couple REAL polaroid photos that he actually took released out there on the internet.”

“People on tiktok are upset because they couldn’t find the Polaroids Dahmer took of his victims,” slammed another user.

Dahmer has seen a resurgence in popularity after Netflix released a documentary about the infamous serial killer starring Evan Peters.
