A TikToker is going viral after she reveals how she panicked after making a serial killer joke to one of Ted Bundy’s relatives.
The TikToker who usually posts by the name broccoliandmoxie, recently, shared a story about her first day of training as a waitress and how it turned out to be the most awkward moment for her when she made a joke about the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy.
“When I was 19, I worked as a server and on my very first day, one of my coworkers came up to me and was like, ‘Hi, my name is blank and I’m going to be training you,’” she said in a viral video which has amassed a whopping 6.2 million views.
The TikToker said that his surname instantly clicked the Ted Bundy name in her head as his surname was also Bundy and she made a joke about it. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, I saw your name on the schedule. Your last name is Bundy. Like the serial killer. Ha ha ha ha ha ha,’” she recalled in the video.
She explained that the man just stared at her blankly for a moment before she apologized and said: “I bet you get that all the time. I bet that’s really annoying.”
