Mommy Dead And Dearest, the latest gripping crime documentary from HBO, hit the streaming service on Monday night, and viewers were immediately sucked into the tale of abuse, secrets, and murder. The harrowing tale of Gyspy Rose Blanchard, a girl who murdered her mother, Dee Dee, after a lifetime of abuse had viewers riveted. Although Gypsy Rose was told that she was chronically ill and handicapped by her mother from a young age, these diagnoses were actually false and a product of her mother’s Munchausen syndrome by proxy.
Eventually, in order to escape her life and be with her secret boyfriend that she met online, Gypsy Rose murdered her mother. As Mommy Dead And Dearest dove into the insane details of the case and what circumstances drove a girl to kill her own mother, Twitter users were left dumbstruck by the documentary.

Holy shit. #MommyDeadandDearest so fucking crazy, weird, & sad. Also, the nephew with the face tat is the most rational person on this doc.

I can’t decide if this girl is a sweet victim or a master manipulator. #MommyDeadAndDearest

#MommyDeadAndDearest if the murder itself wasn’t so brutal, she MIGHT have gotten off. The system failed her every step of the way.

How did SO MANY PEOPLE fail Gypsy? From her family to her doctors, it just seemed like everyone turned a blind eye. #mommydeadanddearest

If you haven’t yet watched the documentary that has everyone talking, it is currently streaming on HBO Now/HBO Go. You will definitely be left with questions about how the system could have possibly failed one girl so badly and the situations that can push people to commit the most heinous crimes. It’ll definitely leave you feeling ill at ease and yet unable to look away.
