For some reason, it’s been a good week for serial killers, particularly Ted Bundy. Executed on the electric chair for his crimes, Bundy was a serial killer, rapist, burglar, and necrophile who killed a whole bunch of young women in the 70s. Obviously, this dude is pretty disgusting, but somehow people aren’t getting the message…

Even scarier is how close to home these situations were. 40 years ago, Ted Bundy terrorized our hometown. Florida State University’s Chi Omega was turned into a slaughterhouse as Bundy killed two sorority girls. Scary stuff.

Two projects have recently dropped surrounding the infamous Ted Bundy. First, Netflix dropped Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. Filled with present-day interviews, archived footage and recordings made during trials and death row, and many more exclusive tapes, Netflix offers its viewers a chance to “take a trip into the disturbed mind of the heinous serial killer who murdered dozens of women and terrorized a nation: Ted Bundy.”

For some reason, Netflix has now had to deliver numerous messages to the public, urging them to stop calling Ted Bundy “hot.” This is honestly gross. Girls are crazy to even sexualize someone as terrible as a literal serial killer. Each day I lose a little more faith in my generation…

Even better is the fact that Zac Efron, an admittedly hot male, had to jump on this bandwagon. He has a new movie coming out, titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. If we were looking for an excuse for girls to find him attractive, now we have one. Efron plays Ted Bundy in this biopic that dives deeper into Ted’s personal life and follows the perspective of his girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer. Now, why someone thought this was a good idea is beyond me, but I guess the new meme will soon become Ted Bundy memes.
