Ted Bundy, in full Theodore Robert Bundy, was an American mass murderer, rapists, kidnapper and necrophile who killed more than 30 women in the 1970s.
Born November 24, 1946, Burlington, Vermont, U.S., he was one of the most notorious criminals of America.
Hollywood actor Zac Efron is playing him in an upcoming movie called Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
Now, he has found a new audience in social media who can’t stop gushing over his “good looks” and “charisma.”
He had sex with the corpses. Horrific thingsabout Ted Bundy
– Bundy confessed to 30, (yes 30), homicides committed. However, the possibility of a higher victim count is plausible.
– Ted Bundy started hurting women at a young age.
– He was good in manipulation. All of his victims fell for his charm.
– Ted Bundy did not know who is father was and maybe that caused some issues for him. His mother was Louis Cowell.
– Bundy had a difficult childhood; he had a strained relationship with his stepfather. Bundy grew up thinking that Louise was his sister and not his mother. Eventually, Ted found out the truth, but no one knows for sure how old he was when he learned this secret.
– There is a bone chilling story about Ted, while he was staying with one of his aunts. That while she was sleeping, he placed several butcher knives under the covers in the bed next to her. When she woke up and discovered the knives, young Ted could not grinning.
– He had a girlfriend and he was very obsessed with her. Years after their breakup (she dumped him!), he was still obsessed with her. All he wanted was revenge.
– Many of his victims were used to look either like her mother and girlfriend.
– He was a necrophiliac and sometimes even saved skulls of women he had killed as trophies
– Despite the horrific nature of his crimes, Ted Bundy became something of a celebrity, particularly following his escape from custody in Colorado in 1977.
– Bundy was executed in Florida’s electric chair in 1989.
Netflix urged its viewers to stop fan-following the murderer
The murderer was brought back to life on his death anniversary when Joe Berlinger’s docu-series, ‘Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes,’ hit the streaming platform.
It turns out that the kind of face we find attractive is also the kind of face that can disguise. “Bundy fans” took to Twitter to praise the killer’s charm and appearance.
Acknowledging the ongoing problematic trend on social media, Netflix took to the microblogging site, and urged its viewers to stop fan-following the murderer, saying, “I’ve seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy’s alleged hotness 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”

This is not the first time the fans have come out with a liking for a dangerous male figure from one of Netflix’s shows.
Few weeks ago, the streaming giant found itself in a problem, when Penn Badgley fans tweeted at him, asking him to “kidnap” and “kill” them.
For those who are yet to watch the Netflix’s thriller series You, Badgley essays the role of Joe Goldberg – a “charming” bookstore manager, as well as a stalker, kidnapper, and serial killer.
Penn had to take to social media to remind the fans that Joe Goldberg was problematic, to say the least, and fantasizing about him was simply wrong.
