    i have a fascination for killers and shooters and everything, they seem almost magnetic, because you want to get behind why they did something no normal person would be able to do. some killers are handsome and interesting, complex people, even charming, but they are still sick, sick individuals who took and ruined lifes, how tf can anyone be supportive of that, even if the killer was,, cute'' like ramirez for example, its scary that people can look past the fact that they are dangerous criminals, just because they are fascinating, or handsome

    Wow, even when you don’t wear make-up and look somewhat disheveled, ur still insanely fucking beautiful...and these vids are so enjoyable regardless of ur physical beauty as well cuz ur engaging with ur discourse and the way you elaborate on stuff...Bless you and this vid is awesome cuz ur so right about it not being cool to glorify killers...and there is a fine line of how far we can take our fascination with murderers and getting swag that endorses them.

    I know this is not your intention, but I think you should be a little more careful about discussing some behaviors as related to mental illness. You’re walking a very fine line of implying mental illness causes violence when it overwhelmingly does not.
    Also.... it’s worth noting that more and more research is showing that this kind of violence is caused by patriarchy, toxic masculinity, and white supremacy. In general, it’s important to recognize the social implications of these events because that is how we stop these events.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong or let me see your point of view. you can’t choose who you’re attracted to. Just like pedophiles don’t choose to be attracted to minors, homosexuals don’t choose to be attracted to the same gender and so on. Others are attracted to criminals and can’t help themselves ( or have this kind of instinct to help them, wich I had when I first read about Columbine.) .Of course It is probably a really bad idea to make these things public since most of the time people wouldn’t agree with their attraction. But when they see that they get accepted in tumblrs tcc with people like them, they finally can get their feelings out to people who understand.
    This is my „Theory“ or however you wanna call it. Just tried to look a little into the community with some people I’ve met in it. I’m sorry if I sounded rude or disrespectful and I don’t mean to piss off or trigger anyone. Have a nice day and stay nice n healthy 😊🖤

    It’s so disturbing to me how some people think it’s okay to romanticize Dylan Klebold because ”Eric was the evil one” and ”Dylan would’ve been completely fine if Eric hadn’t ruined him”. Newsflash, even if that would be true, they both killed people. Dylan picked up the gun with his own hands and pulled the trigger. It’s sad that he wasn’t mentally in a good place, and I really understand he was mentally unwell/unstable but so is everyone who kills another person for no reason. Just because you think he was manipulated by Eric, it doesn’t bring the people he killed back.

    Any attention /help,should be given to the family /friends of those who were killed,and,yes ,if these people had real issues ,then early intervention should be focussed on,prevention ,is the only way,people should know ,when others are in crisis.open your eyes ,think of others.

    I don't think you can fix someone this troubled.... I had a "friend" in highschool, and he was the most troubled person I ever know. He couldn't handle a lot of things, and unfortunatelly he used this to hurt others. And no one could help him... No matter what you said or did for him. He was just like this... He could't cope with the hardships in his life and he responded this way. He lost all of his friend but he keep did nasty things against us.

    Fortunately, the media doesn't romanticize killers that much, but psychopaths. My grandma was a real psycho and my family will still suffer because of the aftermaths of her actions until we die. It pisses me off that there're movies, books, and songs dedicated to psychos in a romantic way. They can't feel and understand love at all, so stop making them the love interest in stories *smh*

    I was in high school when Columbine happened. Next time these brainless girls want to romanticize that shooting, remind them that they shot student Cassie Bernall point blank because she said she believed in God and Isaiah Shoels because he was black. Then violently gunned down coach Sanders and student athlete Matt Kechter because he was a "jock" and needed to die in their eyes.
    Yeah, you could write quite a romance novel from that... 😡

    Tumblr is a cesspool of females being complete perverts and totally obnoxious assholes,... and the true crime community is evidence of that. Notice how guys don't pledge love to murderous females.

    While I’ve heard several people scream Hybristophilia I don’t think that’s necessarily the case for everyone in the TCC. I feel like they dissociate the awful acts from the killers more then they romanticize the killers along with their actions. They don’t love the killers for being killers. They love the idea that they could have saved them if only they had been around for them. But in reality the killers would have killed them with no remorse.

  • Jude Bell

    In all honesty I don't think Hunt a Killer glamourizes serial killers in any way - it just reflects the fact that the true crime community are kind of obsessed with researching unsolved crimes, and this is just tapping into that need for puzzle solving. I'm not sure lumping that in with these idiots wearing stupid shirts is fair.

  • LadyScarface Angel

    I knew someone in high school who had a Manson shirt. It didn’t read, “Free Charlie Manson”, it was just a picture of his face. He didn’t support him, he was just the type of person who liked to get extreme reactions out of people. I’m not defending him in anyway, even though he was a really good friend of mine. He would often embarrass me out in public together when he was trying to shock people. What do you do in that situation? Plus I was a teenager. I had a huge crush on my friend. Plot Twist: I wound up marring my friend 3-4 years after high school. Lmao! Yes, he is my hubby. He has completely changed now though. He doesn’t own that shirt anymore, & he doesn’t try to get extreme reactions out of people now. He doesn’t support killers & never has.
    My sister was raped murdered in Chicago a few years before I was born, so I never knew her, but it still had a huge impact on me growing up. At 14 I lost my step brother, whom I loved dearly, when he was shot & killed by his so-called “best friend”. Murder has played a role throughout my life. (RIP Julie Angel & Jamie Stafford) My hubby understands that, & he would never support a killer period.
    Anyway, sorry about the long comment. It makes me sick when I hear about girls, or guys, fantasizing about killers. Just why? When it’s a fictional movie, that’s different, but in real life, I just don’t get it.

  • Sally Reid

    I know I'm late to this discussion but I think what disturbs me most is the trend I'm seeing toward extreme lack of empathy in these true crime subcultures (not all tcc is like this, I know, but corners of it are). Idolizing serial killers is a deeply uncompassionate worldview. It suggests that the victims weren't worthy to be grieved, that their families weren't forever changed by the horrific things that happened. It makes the killer more human than the victim and that's........it's weird. It's creepy. It's really alarming as a trend. I think it's been around as a concept for as long as humans have existed but the Internet is just making it easier for these people to connect and perpetuate each other's fantasies. And this isn't a matter of "oh, just let them be" because this has real-world effects. People do scary things when they dehumanize others, especially when they feel justified in doing so. It just make me feel so, so old and tired.

    I know this video is a couple years old, but I've been watching all of your true crime videos and I find them very fascinating. I didn't realize that people romanticized killers THAT MUCH, and I think the thing that really gets to me is people romanticizing school shooters. I have to wonder if any of those people are American because I think (and I could be wrong) that most school shootings happen in America. I don't think it's a stretch to say that almost every teenager in America has had a nightmare about being in an active shooter situation at least once. This is the reality of our lives, especially those who have survived these situations or lost loved ones.

  • ehr hru

    (I think at least) that their connection with these people is kind of like how we enjoy disney villians and characters, but the difference is that they dont differentiate the fantasy from reality. I LOVE villians such as Scar, Loki, and many more that are also popular with the Tumblr crowd, because theyre fun to watch on screen ansld the chaos is enjoyable, and backstories are tragic and interguing. To my knowlege, these people characterize and read into the backstories of these people and see them as tragic and forgetting their actions. I think or at least hope that the flaw is the fact that they dont see where the line or boundary is rather than them actually understanding and relating.

  • I say shotgun, you say wedding

    And this is one of the reasons why I'm concerned about the philosophy of life---who would have thought that society would ever be wearing t-shirts with real serial killers on them. It makes you wonder if progress even exists, or if it's just a subjective part of our minds own individual understanding.

    You seem pretty smart. You should research hybristophilia. That is what the phenomenon is called. Involuntary sexual attraction...I think these younger girls look at it as they are a character or fictional in some way. They do Romanticize like a TEENAGE girl does. Which is hormonal and they don't know how to separate the crimes from the attraction. They're kids...and I think the person at 10:48 gives a reasonable explanation.

  • Char Dahl

    The new movie based on Ted Bundy that stars Zac Efron has apparently gotten negative responses for not including more graphic details on how the victims were lured and then killed. Now, this film did give a little reenactment of that in a part of the movie and they did include some crime scene photos from the actual murders, which I'm sure many of the general public have seen anyway. When the end credits begin rolling, you're shown a list of his known victims, even those who had survived.
    Moral of the story: I feel like the creators were very careful about what to include in their film and still kept in mind that respect was owed to the victims and everyone associated with them. I really, really appreciated that. Sadly, I guess some people out there didn't see it that way.

    So the hunt a killer box subscription has been really good fun. But I 100% don’t understand that advertising choice. The seasons (storylines) I’ve done are along the lines of your helping a private investigator or defense lawyer figure out what really happened in a COMPLETELY FICTIONAL mystery. Nothing I’ve received has been “from a serial killer” or in reference to a real life murder. So it makes me really uncomfortable that they even ran that ad. It’s in poor taste and inaccurate.

  • Female Diogenes

    i didnt watch this but trying to remove anyone from receiving empathy is a bad idea. theres a good reason we humans empathize with almost anything. the empathy is what can stop the killers from killing if they can feel it too. inb4: delusional magical thinking. okay but telling ppl to stop 'romanticizing' it censors the conversation about it. & if there's ever a time when we need to bring a subject into the light it's here & now in human history. we can't censor it. that will make it worse.

    4:44 Okay,so she makes a video ranting about people romanticizing killers but she goes to Museum of Death with the killers having their own room and she even gets her a post card with their faces on it,although she wanted Jeffrey Dahmer but she pretty much implied she didn't want the others feeling left out so she got a card with all of their faces on it.I thought I found me a new RUclipr to watch but she sounds more hypocritical.That's why she was stumbling on her words and getting hot because she knows she put her own foot in her mouth.What's the difference in wearing a shirt with their faces on it and buying a post card to keep as a souvenir with their faces on it (her words "as a souvenir")?lol

    I didn’t go through a serial killer phase, but after ahs season 1 aired when I was in 8th grade I was so obsessed with Tate.. it’s pretty gross now since I recently rewatched the season and absolutely despise him. He’s cute yeah, but that really caused an increase in the romanticization if serial killers. so many tate blogs became columbine shooter fangirls... it was scary to watch. i thought he was a sweet, misunderstood boy when I was 14. I’m 21 now and repulsed. How these people can praise & worship actual murders is beyond me. Like y’all.. he would’ve shot you too. With no remorse.
