Ted Bundy Survivor Responds To Controversy Over Zac Efron's Portrayal Of The Serial Killer

People- Zac Efron playing one of the most famous serial killers of all time is freaking out the Internet — and according to a survivor of Ted Bundy, that’s how it should be.

Kathy Kleiner Rubin — who was a 20-year-old sorority sister at Florida State University when Bundy crept into her bedroom at 3 a.m. and beat her and her roommate with a club — spoke to TMZ about her relationship to the series of murders outlined in Efron’s new film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

She continued: “I believe that in order to show him exactly the way he was, it’s not really glorifying him, but it’s showing him, and when they do say positive and wonderful things about him … that’s what they saw, that’s what Bundy wanted you to see.”

So Zac Efron’s new movie where he plays Ted Bundy is causing some controversy over the past few days because people think the movie is “glorifying” Ted Bundy. Obviously having someone as attractive as Zac Efron play a serial killer is going to result in people wanting to bang the Ted Bundy version of Zac Efron because that’s just the way it is. It’s Zac Efron and it’s hard not to get excited when seeing Zac Efron on your screen. The same thing has been happening with the new Netflix show YOU. Penn Badgely even addressed people on Twitter who loved his character by questioning what is wrong with the world.

Although people are saying this is “glorifying” Ted Bundy, one of his survivors stated that having Zac Efron play him is actually good because it shows exactly what Ted Bundy was. He was charming and good looking and you would never believe he was a serial killer. That’s how he did what he did. People would never believe Zac Efron is a serial killer and that’s why he’s a good fit to play Ted Bundy, she basically says. Even though Kathy Kleiner Rubin is defending the movie, some others are not pleased…

An 82-year-old mother, Belva Kent, of one of his victims, Debra Jean Kent, who was murdered in 1974 at age 17, tells PEOPLE of the film: “Why keep rubbing our face in it all the time? It’s very hard to deal with and when they keep bringing it up and putting it up.”

 Kent continues: “It’s very disgusting to me. … It’s kind of aggravating to me, but I just try to ignore it and move on.”

In addition, Kent thinks that portrayals of Bundy should stress that what his victims suffered “can happen to anybody.”

“You just never know when you can be in that position,” she explains to PEOPLE. “You just want to let people know that it’s out there. … No one’s immune.”

I can obviously see why others would be pissed too. This isn’t some fake Netflix show like YOU. This shit really did happen and the main focus of the movie should be a warning to all and to remember how these victims suffered.

The best way to stop yourself from fantasizing about banging Zac Efron is to just remember that Ted Bundy was a real life extremely sick minded individual who caused heartache and pain in many people’s lives. That should stop your lady-boner real fast.
