Netflix is having NONE of you thirsting over Ted Bundy, the literal necrophilic serial killer
"He was hot in the electric chair."
Look lads, we know - Ted Bundy was good looking.
He was. It's a fact of life.
And it was his good looks that he used to lure young women to their deaths, that charm he used to entice people into his car, and those piercing blue eyes he used to misguide victims into thinking that they were safe in his presence.
Anyone who has watched Netflix's The Ted Bundy Tapes documentary will know that this was, in fact, not the case.
Bundy murdered upwards of 30 young women in the 1970s across multiple US states.
In some cases, he decapitated them. In others, he engaged in necrophilia. In most, he raped them before eventually killing them and dumping their bodies in the woods.
He was one of the world's most horrific serial killers - so yeah, thirsting over him is not acceptable. Sorry.
Thankfully, Netflix understand this and they have issued a response to the hundreds (Jesus, maybe even thousands) of people who have been tweeting them about hot Ted Bundy this week.
"I've seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy’s alleged hotness" they said, "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."

The sentiment was then echoed by Netflix UK and Ireland, who urged people to fancy people who don't commit crime instead.

This comes just a few days after the trailer for the upcoming feature film about Bundy's capture and eventual death was released.
Starring Zac Efron as Bundy, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, documents the serial killer's life, his murders, and the trial that saw him sent to the electric chair.
Viewers have expressed concern that the movie might focus too heavily on Bundy's notoriety and not enough on the women he killed.
The film is due for release later this year.
