Netflix Insists Crew Have Access to Therapy as Production Assistant Says She's 'Treated Horribly'

A representative for the streaming giant has issued a statement following a complaint by a crew member who worked on 'Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story'.

AceShowbiz - A production assistant claimed she was "treated horribly" on set of Netflix's new show "Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story". Posting a tweet about her experiences working on the show - which stars Evan Peters as the notorious serial killer, crew member Kim Alsup said the job "took everything [she] had" and insisted seeing the trailer for the series brought back awful memories of her time on set.

"I worked on this project and I was 1 of 2 Black people on the crew and they kept calling me her name. We both had braids, she was dark skin and 5'10. I'm 5'5," she tweeted. "Working on this took everything I had as I was treated horribly."

Kim went on to speak to the Los Angeles Times about her tweet as well as what happened during her time on the series, saying, "It was one of the worst shows that I've ever worked on."

She added, "I was always being called someone else's name, the only other Black girl who looked nothing like me, and I learned the names for 300 background extras."

Kim also insisted she hasn't watched the Netflix show yet as she fears it will be too painful. She went on, "I just feel like it's going to bring back too many memories of working on it. I don't want to have these PTSD types of situations. The trailer itself gave me PTSD, which is why I ended up writing that tweet and I didn't think that anybody was going to read."

The LA Times reported that Netflix declined to comment on the claims, but a spokesperson insisted all crew members have access to "free health and wellness resources, including access to a licensed therapist."
