"Monster: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer" is one of the most talked about series of the time, one that also became a very big hit for Netflix, but it seems that working on it was not easy for all those who worked on it behind the camera.
Kim Alsop, who claims to have worked on set as a coordinator, posted a tweet on her Twitter account saying that she was one of only two black women who worked on the series, causing many to confuse the two.
"Team members called me by her name. We both had braids, but she has dark skin and is 1.55 meters tall, and I'm 1.67 meters tall," she wrote in a tweet.
"Working on this project took everything I had and I was treated horribly," she said.
"I look at the main black female character in a completely different way now."
In what she told the "Los Angeles Times", she added that she had not yet watched the successful show due to the fear that it would remind her of the difficult time she experienced in real time.
"I feel like it will bring back too many hard memories of working on her," she said.
"I don't want to have post-traumatic symptoms. Just watching the trailer for the series triggered such symptoms in me."

According to Alsop, it was one of the most horrible series she worked on: "I was always called someone else's name, the only other black young woman on the set, who didn't look like me at all, and I learned the names of 300 extras."

As you may recall, the hit Netflix mini-series follows the true story of the infamous American serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, who seduced and murdered 17 men between 1978-1991.
Evan Peters, who plays the lead role, received praise for his role, in contrast to the series itself which received mostly mediocre reviews.
