What is Gianni Versace's family so angry about?

The series starts with the assassination of Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez) at the hands of Andrew Cuanan (Darren Criss).

The Assassination of Gianni Versace is so much more of an emotional journey than the first American Crime Story season was. "And I talked to at least, I'd say, five different people on the record who went to the party, who saw them talking, and then I also talked to one of Andrew's friends who claims that Andrew was riding around in a white convertible with Versace and Antonio one night and, kind of, a decadent socialite from San Francisco who was well known, and Andrew had him bring the vehicle over to the curb so he could introduce and make them see that he was with Versace". This stray remark seems to be the basis for the Versace scene in which Cunanan and Versace, surrounded by candelabras and sipping champagne, get to know each other on the stage of the San Francisco Opera. To what extent he had a relationship with him or was seen with him afterwards or anything like that, I don't know.

Recreating a murder in the exact place where it happened might upset the family. But for the most part, Andrew's story has nothing to do [with Versace] and I think that's sort of a misnomer.

The second season of Ryan Murphy's anthology delves into the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace, and explores one very controversial aspect of the designer's life - his HIV-status. More importantly, he isn't even the main focus of the series.

"What I found most fantastic about it is this is a guy that came so close to death, and still clung on", he said.

For Criss-who worked on American Crime Story executive producer Ryan Murphy's previous hit, Glee-he entered into the Crime Story world nearly by accident. We cut from the Cunanan/Versace meeting in the bar to Cunanan telling a entirely different version of the story, wherein Versace approached him and Cunanan scornfully said "If you're Gianni Versace, I'm Coco Chanel".

"It was people that love me, people that mean well and people that were just victims of homophobia", he adds.

The first source Orth spoke to about this was Eli Gould, a friend of Cunanan's and high-profile lawyer who said he was with Cunanan the night he met Versace.

Directly before and after the shooting of Versace, Criss has a series of standout, terrifying, semi-cathartic moments of pure release (screaming maniacally into the ocean looks extremely appealing, unsure what this says about me?) but the beat that really stuck comes right when Versace's death has been confirmed on the news. Just over a month after Versace's murder, Diana-one of his friends-would also die an untimely death.

The Versace family will issue no further comment on the matter. And Donatella, too, whose disappointment in her brother's lack of a leaving behind an heir for their fashion brand is the conflict that drives their story throughout the season.
