"Ted Bundy is so hot!": Netflix appalled after viewers go gaga over notorious serial killer
Netflix's social media manager was shocked at the number of people who chose to focus on Ted Bundy's appearance instead of his sickening crimes
Netflix is begging its users to stop calling Ted Bundy 'hot' after the release of the network's new docu-series on the serial killer. Thousands of people who watched the show have tweeted to say how attractive and good looking he was.
The streaming service's social media manager was shocked at the number of people who have seen the series so far and have focused on Bundy's appearance over disgusting heinous crimes. In a friendly but firm tweet, Netflix's account read, "I've seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy’s alleged hotness and would like to gently remind everyone that there are literally THOUSANDS of hot men on the service — almost all of whom are not convicted, serial murderers."

Several Twitter users call him "hot" and "sexy" and some even shared screenshots of his face from the documentary. One user wrote, "I know he’s a murderer but we can say Ted Bundy is hot right? I mean Efron is going to play him. Feel like that’s OK." While another user added, "Ted Bundy was very attractive and no one can tell me different." A third user commented, "literally why the fuck was Ted Bundy so hot lol." Another person said, "He was hot. I can’t believe I’m writing this about a serial killer."
However, not everyone saw it that way. One user shared, "Ladies I may not be as hot as ted bundy but I will also not murder you." While another shared, "Straight ppl thinking ted bundy is hot is just further evidence that we must ban heterosexuality." A third user added, "His physical appearance made him more dangerous and confident in his manipulative ways. Making crime glamorous is dangerous and very sad. Always remember the victims and never judge a book by its cover. A monster may live behind any mask."
This is not the first time that people have been moved by his looks and nor is it the first time his ability to lure his victims has been attributed to his looks. While Bundy was death row, he received many letters from several female admirers and a woman named Carol Anne Boone even ended up marrying him while he was on trial for multiple homicides.
The docu-series is titled 'Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes' and came out on January 24, 2019. Ever since its release, it has been an instant hit with viewers who have taken to social media platforms to discuss the series in detail. Ted Bundy confessed to killing around 30 women in seven states and even managed to escape prison twice. He was executed for his sickening crimes in 1989.
