Netflix's new docu-series 'Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes' has sparked a huge debate and many memes...
Time and time again Netflix provides us with content that takes over pop culture. This year alone the video streaming service has blessed us with the likes of YOU (Peach Salinger is lowkey the greatest TV character of all time) and Sex Education (give Eric the world). There is nothing we love more than binging a Netflix series and now everyone is talking about Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, for those of you who don't know, is an original crime docuseries about the real-life US criminal Ted Bundy. Ted Bundy was a serial killer, kidnapper, rapist, burglar and necrophile who was executed in 1989 after confessing to his crimes. The series focuses on his horrific acts and includes interviews with him and yet many people watching find him... hot.
Ted Bundy thirst memes are now a thing and WTF.
Ted Bundy confessed to killing over 30 people although it is likely that he killed even more. The fact that people are attracted to him is shocking but if you watch the documentary many of his victims who survived said that he managed to exploit them because he was charming and handsome. Taking this into consideration, it's perhaps a little bit understandable that people fancy him... maybe?
Still a lot of viewers are confused af as to the how anyone can find Ted Bundy good-looking and now the great Is Ted Bundy hot? debate is breaking the internet. Let's take a look at the arguments and see what the consensus is.
What is everybody seeing in him?
throughout this entire ted bundy tapes documentary, they kept calling him attractive, good-looking and handsome... i’m like bitch where?! i don’t see anywhere. tf is everyone else talking about? this man looks like a psycho right off the bat!— 𝐋𝐈𝐀 | 𝐅𝐅𝐇 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐍. (@GLOSSPHOENIX) January 25, 2019
We see no lies.
The whole point is that he was handsome though.
if in 2019 you're surprised that ted bundy was handsome and didn't seem like a serial killer, this is a reminder: THAT WAS HIS WHOLE THING. THAT'S LIKE, THE THING OF ALL PSYCHOPATHS. THAT'S WHY THEY'RE SO DANGEROUS. goddamn it, people WE'VE BEEN OVER THIS.— Anne T. Donahue (@annetdonahue) January 26, 2019
To be fair this makes a lot of sense.
Still a lot of viewers aren't buying it.

I am confusion.
Do they mean hot for a serial killer?
Why is Ted Bundy always described as “handsome”? Am I the only one not seeing it? Are we talking ... like... handsome for a serial killer? Cause... they never say that qualifier..... I’m just wondering.— Mykie (@GlamandGore) January 28, 2019
Is that a thing? He is no Joe Goldberg.
To be fair a lot of people are overreacting.
me, using my eyes and brain: ted bundy was objectively handsome which helped him create a false sense of security and lure his victims— jess (@jesshakeitoff) January 27, 2019
someone on here: oh so you wanna fuck him? you wanna fuck ted bundy? you love murder and necrophilia? that’s what ur saying to me rn?
It's possible to find a serial killer objectively hot without wanting to go anywhere near him.
The fact that Zac Efron is about to play him is messing with people too.
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— Kelly Keegs (@kellykeegs) January 25, 2019
Wait a minute.
Was he even hot though?
Why do documentaries keep saying ted bundy was handsome? That man was UGLY— Vivienne (@PeachesLenoir) January 24, 2019

That is scary though.
I'm terrified of every person who finds Ted Bundy hot.— Lily Bolourian. لی لی (@LilyBolourian) January 27, 2019
Is he hot or is he just a white man who complies to euro-centric beauty standards?
