"All I see is the Joker minus the makeup," writes one viewer.
Ted Bundy surprisingly began trending on Twitter today, thanks to a new documentary from, who else, Netflix.
Debuting on the streaming service this morning, "Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes" reexamines the case and features excerpts from audio interviews journalists Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth did with Bundy on death row in 1980. According to Netflix, some of the audio has never been heard before.
The serial killer brutally murdered and assaulted at least 30 women before he was caught in 1978. His trial became a media circus as he attempted to defended himself in court, won the support of female fans and even proposed to his girlfriend while she was testifying in his in favor. (FYI: She said yes)
While Bundy was executed in Florida for his crimes 30 years ago today, the narrative of him being a "good-looking" guy continues to this day. As the docuseries and those in it comment on his looks and charm, viewers have turned to social media to try and put an end to it once and for all.
For now, see what viewers at home have to say to anyone swooning over the murderer:
I've never never understood this inordinate focus on how “good looking” Ted Bundy supposedly was. Am I missing something? He...looks like every white guy you'd pass in a shopping mall. https://t.co/1YeaR1N9IM
To the people puzzled at Ted Bundy being called “good looking,” you need to understand that the Florida male standard of beauty by comparison at the time was (and still is in some parts) Joe Dirt. pic.twitter.com/7LegsnAvVJ
I'm watching this Ted Bundy doc on Netflix and people keep saying he was charming and good looking....he looks like he'd chop me into a million pieces. White ppl definition of what's charming and good looking is always off lmao
