The eyeglasses that serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer wore in prison is going up for sale for $150,000 USD.

The item is being sold by Taylor James of Cult Collectibles in Vancouver, Canada who claims that he acquired the glasses and several other items of the Milwaukee Cannibal from the former housekeeper of Dahmer’s father, Lionel. The collection, which also includes Dahmer’s cutlery, bible, family photos and several paperwork, is now being managed and sold by James for a portion of the profit. TMZ reports that although the website does not feature the glasses, those who are interested can contact Taylor directly.

Jeffrey Dahmer became a fixture in pop culture once again due to Ryan Murphy’s Monster Netflix series, which stars Evan Peters as the notorious serial killer. Despite the renewed interest, however, many have reacted negatively to the show. Rapper Boosie Badazz tweeted about how Black people should boycott Monster because “WHAT HE DID TO OUR BLACK KIDS IS F*CKING SICK,” while Rita Isbell, the sister of Errol Lindsey — a 19-year-old victim of Dahmer’s — criticized Netflix for failing to reach out the victim’s families and accused the streamer of “making money off of this tragedy”:

“When I saw some of the show, it bothered me, especially when I saw myself — when I saw my name come across the screen and this lady saying verbatim exactly what I said.

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought it was me. Her hair was like mine, she had on the same clothes. That’s why it felt like reliving it all over again. It brought back all the emotions I was feeling back then.

I was never contacted about the show. I feel like Netflix should’ve asked if we mind or how we felt about making it. They didn’t ask me anything. They just did it.

But I’m not money hungry, and that’s what this show is about, Netflix trying to get paid.”

Dahmer murdered and dismembered a total of 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, most of whom were Black or Brown. Monster explores the killings of his victims and how both homophobia (Dahmer was a gay man) and racism enabled him to commit these crimes for years.

Elsewhere in entertainment, the Community movie is officially happening on Peacock.
