Simone Biles is warning people not to dress up as Jeffrey Dahmer for Halloween.

Ever since Netflix's true crime series Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story dropped last month, there's been a surge of interest in the cannibalistic murderer who came to be known as the Milwaukee Monster.

When he was arrested in 1991, Dahmer confessed to the killing, dismembering, and eating of 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991. Most of his victims were gay, and the vast majority were Black, Indigenous, Asian, or Latinx.

With Halloween just around the corner, Olympic gymnast Biles saw fit to caution fans of the show against dressing up as Dahmer for their annual Trick or Treating.

She - like many others - clearly felt that cosplaying as the serial killer was not an appropriate way to honor his victims.

"I'm just gon go head and say it, put the Jeffrey Dahmer costumes back in the closet [sic]," the Gold-medalist wrote on Twitter on Wednesday (October 19).

She added: "We ain’t having it!!!!!!"

Biles isn't the first person to warn others against dressing up as the Milwaukee cannibal this October.

Since the success of Netflix's show, many have taken to social media to make it clear dressing up as Dahmer is disrespectful to his victims.

"The constant lack of remorse for Dahmer's victims on social media makes me believe many people are going dress as Jeffery Dahmer and his victims for Halloween and that is so sick," one person tweeted.

"If anyone comes to my door dressed as f***ing Jeffrey Dahmer for Halloween this year I’m calling the police. Ya’ll are glorifying a REAL DUDE that was a sex offender of minors, serial killer, and cannibal," another wrote.

However, it looks like their pleas fell on deaf ears. People have already begun sharing snaps of their Dahmer costumes online. Polish makeup artist and model Noemi shared a snap of her impressively accurate transformation into the killer to Instagram alongside the caption: "JEFFREY DAHMER, Halloween series 2".

Another tweeted a polaroid photo of themself in full Dahmer drag, captioned: "Dahmer costume."

They even sought to justify their outfit, writing: "He's a s***ty human being but Halloween costumes should be scary, don't they?!"
