Netflix has an important message for its viewers: Stop swooning over serial killer Ted Bundy. The streaming giant recently released the new docu-series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, and some people are now describing the notorious murderer as “hot” and “charming.” For those of you who don’t know, the new documentary is about Bundy’s final years in prison (he was executed in 1989 after killing at least 30 innocent women).
On January 28th, Netflix stepped in to remind users that Bundy was a violent murderer, and that there are plenty of attractive, non-murderer men on the streaming service to thirst after.
The tweet comes just a few weeks after actor Penn Badgley begged fans to stop romanticizing his murderous character, Joe Goldberg, in You. Like Bundy, Goldberg is a serial killer who uses social media to stalk a young woman and manipulates her into falling in love with him.
Valid points all around.
