Ted Bundy died in Florida in 1989 in an electric chair.
- Netflix asked viewers to stop talking about "alleged mourning" of serial killer Ted Bundy.
- The streaming service presented its documentaries "Conversations with a Killer: Ted Bundy Tape" last week.
- Since then he has said that fans are obsessed with the apparent physical attraction of the killer.
- Bundy admits he killed 30 women before he was killed, but some experts believe he killed over 100 people.
Netflix asked its viewers to kindly stop talking about the "heat" of serial killer Ted Bundy after the premiere of her documents "Talking with a Killer: Ted Bundy's tapes".
The streaming service reported on Twitter that he had seen "a lot of talk about the alleged mourning of Ted Bundy and would like to gently remind everyone that there are literally thousands of hot men in the service – almost all of them are not convicted of serial killers."

The fourth documentary was premiered on Thursday, the 30th anniversary of Bundy's execution. It has previously unseen audio recordings of interviews with Bundy, conducted during its closing.
"Ted Bundy Tapes" directed by Joe Burlinger, who seems to have a fascination with the subject – he also directed "Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vintage", featuring Eats Eckhron as Bundy and premiering at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend. The "extremely wicked" is accused of "romanticizing" the serial killer.
Bundy was sentenced to death three times for the killing of three women. Prior to his murder, he confessed to killing 30 women between 1974 and 1978.
But some experts believe that Bundy killed more than 100 people.
Bundy managed to deceive his victims because he was considered charming, manipulative and physically attractive – something that is clear in the documents.
The trial psychologist and FBI consultant, Darrell Turner, told the business insider: "I think it's important for people to realize that Ted Bundy was successful because he was so" ordinary. "But more than that, he was a charming and handsome and charismatic young man ".
He added: "He used criticism and cunning, charm and compassion to win the trust of his victims and to lower his defenses before he subjugated them. In fact, he was very proud of this and felt that it was something he set aside from other "gentlemen," as he referred to other serial killers. "
The statement from Netflix comes after spectators had a similar reaction to the character Joe in his thriller series "You". The character is another dangerous hunter who continues to kill.
Pen Badgley, who plays Joe, also responded to the tweets written by fans to romanticize his character and reminded them that Joe was a killer with "many troubles."
