Netflix is reminding its viewers that though serial killer Ted Bundy may be considered attractive, there are other fish in the sea who have not murdered people.

Interviews Bundy gave while in prison are the subject of a new Netflix docu-series called “Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes,” directed and produced by Joe Berlinger.

But since it premiered on Jan. 24, some viewers have taken to Twitter to comment on Bundy's appearance.

"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," the streaming service tweeted.

Bundy is believed to have murdered dozens of women. He was executed in 1989.

It's not the first time Netflix has had to issue a warning over viewers' reactions to content on its platform. 

After its movie "Bird Box" spawned a viral challenge in which people donned blindfolds and recorded themselves doing everyday things sightless, Netflix urged viewers to avoid injuring themselves. 

"Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE. We don’t know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes."
