Netflix recently released the documentary “Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” and now the streaming platform has had to head to Twitter to ask viewers not to lust after Bundy, as he is a vicious serial killer who killed around 30 people. The streaming platform had previously warned viewers on Twitter not to watch the show alone due to its scary nature.

First, it was women lusting after Penn Badgley’s character as a serial killer in the new series “You.” Now it’s Ted Bundy getting all the amorous attention. It makes you wonder what exactly is up with today’s women?

Women lust after Ted Bundy

The streaming platform recently released the series “You,” where everyone wanted Penn Badgley’s character’s body, who plays the role of a brutal serial killer.

At the time, Badgley himself responded to viewers asking them to stop idolising his character. Then Netflix released the four-part documentary “Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” on 24 January and they have already had to head to Twitter to likewise ask women to stop lusting after the brutal serial killer.

As noted by the Daily Mail, the documentary covers the story of Bundy, one of the most infamous and notorious serial killers in US history. The series includes real-life interviews with the cold-hearted killer, where he speaks about brutally killing women just like he was talking about the weather.

As noted by CNN, when Twitter became alive with women lusting after Bundy, Netflix was quick to respond.

Speaking in the first person, Netflix noted they had seen lots of talk about Bundy being hot and went on to gently remind viewers there are thousands of hot men on their platform. They said almost all of these hot men were not convicted serial murderers.

Vaas Montenegro responded by saying “But he’s hot though,” going on to add another response saying Bundy was hot in the electric chair.

Twitter user Kinsey Matson tweeted “The fact this even needs to be said...”

Serial killers and their attractions

After Twitter users started lusting after Joe Goldberg, Penn Badgley’s character in “You,” Netflix viewers’ morals were brought into question. However, that show has received divided opinions since it debuted on the streaming platform where fans tend to be divided by the homicidal and romantic sides to that character.

However, getting back to Bundy, the documentary is not the only recent release relating to the serial killer. The Film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend. Zac Efron has been praised by many reviewers for his portrayal of Bundy, but many critics weren’t so impressed with the film itself.

Both come around the time of the 30-year anniversary of Bundy being executed by electric chair at the Florida State Prison. Around 2,000 people outside the prison cheered as it happened. Things have obviously changed since.
