American Netflix viewers have shared their shock after watching a new Netflix documentary about the crimes of Jimmy Savile.

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story was released on the streaming service yesterday and focuses on the life and crimes of the TV host and pedophile.

When Savile’s crimes broke in 2012, they made headlines around the world, but the story got far more coverage in his native UK than in the US and overseas.

Taking to Twitter, some American viewers and others outside the UK have said they did not know the details of Savile’s case, and many were horrified to learn the details of Savile’s rampant sexual abuse.

“As an American, I didn’t know much about Jimmy Savile,” wrote one viewer. “After watching the documentary I feel like I have to wash for days. Disgusting monster.”

“Today I’m sorry to learn that someone named Jimmy Savile ever existed. I liked it better when I didn’t notice,” wrote another.

“I had heard about Jimmy Savile from an English employee,” wrote a Canada-based Twitter user. “I just checked out his doc on #netflix. What an indictment of the cult of celebrity.”
