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.

Zac Efron is about to play Ted Bundy in the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

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 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?

We see no lies.

The whole point is that he was handsome though.

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?

Is that a thing? He is no Joe Goldberg.

To be fair a lot of people are overreacting.

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.

Wait a minute.

Was he even hot though?

An important question.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

To a lot of people he really was a hottie.

That is scary though.

Like petrifying.

Is he hot or is he just a white man who complies to euro-centric beauty standards?

The tea is scalding.

Where is the self-love?


In conclusion...

...Bruce Lee forever.
