T-shirts appearing to glorify notorious serial killer Ted Bundy are being flogged online ahead of Halloween.
Phrases including “Choke me like Bundy” and “Ladies man” are imprinted on the ghoulish garments – but reviewers can't get enough.
One T-shirt being advertised on Etsy features Bundy alongside other serial killers including cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer.
And one reviewer, Emi Shackleford, wrote this month: “Absolutely love this shirt! It’s hella soft and comfortable. I have gotten so many compliments on it.”
Stacy Davis added: “Love everything. This is a shirt I want to wear everywhere. Super comfy and great seller.”
And ladybug0298 wrote in her five-star review: “Absolutely love the shirt, so many laughs from it already.”
Bundy, who targeted young women and girls, was executed in an electric chair in 1989 after eventually confessing to 30 homicides.
He committed his crimes in seven US states between 1974 and 1978.
And Google searches for ‘Ted Bundy costume’ have surged this month.
Another T-shirt on Etsy reads: “Choke me like Bundy and eat me like Dahmer".
Buyer Ashlynn Stamps said: “My shirt is so cute. My co-workers think I’m a sociopath, but honestly this shirt is so cute it’s worth it.”
Another piece of clothing showcases an infamous Bundy quote that reads: “I’m the most cold hearted son of a b**** you’ll ever meet.”
One T-shirt has a portrait of Bundy with the words: “Best Boyfriend ever.”
The seller on Etsy described it as a “sarcastic shirt”, which was being sold for £27.30.
Bundy merch is also being sold on eBay with a new ‘Heartbreaker’ top being flogged for £15.99.
However, at the time of writing, 38 had already sold with only four more available.
And eBay is also selling a “ladies man” portrait T-shirt of Bundy – with the seller describing it as “serial killer fun gift novelty”.
There was a spike in interest concerning the life of the killer after the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile was released in 2019.
It caused controversy after Bundy was played by heartthrob actor Zac Efron.
Many slammed the film for trying to “sexualise” the mass murderer who took the lives of numerous women.
And Bundy’s appalling crimes were also explored in the Netflix show Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
It included audio recordings with Bundy from death row before he was executed at Florida State Prison.
