If you've been enjoying Making a Murderer, you've no doubt been yelling at your screen quite a lot. Netflix's real life docu-drama has caused as much stress as it has enjoyment by exposing the fiendish injustices, incompetencies, and mind-blowing don't-give-a-fucks of the legal system.

If you've been really, really getting into Making a Murderer, chances are that you've shouted 'YOU'RE A DICK' at this man.

Ken Kratz, the face that launched a thousand curse words... The good thing is, Kratz agrees with your assessment: he thinks he was a dick, too.

"I was a dick… Some of that was bravado that was necessary for the presentation of the case, but some of that was me. I think it's important that people understand that I'm not that person anymore."

Check out the full, fabulous dick revelation video from the folks at Gothamist.

Kratz talks quite candidly about how much hatred his 'dick'-like behavior has gotten him from viewers of Making a Murderer:

"The first three weeks of criticism I received on emails on the Internet kind of went like this, ‘Ken you're a piece of s–t and Steven Avery is innocent. How dare you convict him!' About a week and a half ago that narrative changed to, ‘Ken you're a piece of s–t' — which didn't change — and ‘Although Steven Avery may be guilty, we still think the cops may have been involved where he deserves another trial.'"

Oh, and just in case you were wondering — or have been listening to the more bizarre rumblings of Internet chatrooms, Ken Kratz may have been a dick, but he didn't kill Teresa Halbach. Here's his response to that rather odd theory:

"That's really entertaining, actually. Obviously just for their information, I have an alibi for the 31st of October… That's such a funny question to answer."

In case you're beginning to feel sorry for Ken Kratz and his bad rep, just remember that he left his official position in the courts, under the unsavory auspices noted by Gothamist:

He resigned in 2010 after being accused of sexting and harassing domestic violence victims.

Who was your biggest bugbear in Making a Murder? Maybe you have a soft spot for Kratz and it was Kuche who really got your goat... Sound off in the comments!
