TRENDING ON REDDIT: If News Headline Read "Celebrity Outed as Serial Killer" Who Comes to Mind?


Picture this: you read a newspaper headline that says “Celebrity Outed as Serial Killer” or “Hollywood Celebrity Arrested in Serial Slayings.” The identity of the celeb isn’t revealed within the title itself, so before reading this make-believe newspaper article, which Hollywood star comes to mind?

People went went off on Reddit regarding this topic, adding who they think the celebrity serial killer would be. The long list includes:

  • Bill Murray

  • Carrot Top

  • Ryan Seacrest

  • Joel Osteen

  • Mark Zuckerberg

  • Charlie Sheen

  • David Fincher

  • Kevin Spacey

  • Quentin Tarantino 

  • Tom Cruise

There are a ton more, (it’s a huge thread with over 17,000 comments) so there’s no sign that this celeb/serial killer momentum is going to die down. 

A few of the funniest laugh-out-loud comments?

Kanye West would have come out and said “I’m the greatest serial killer of all time.”

His signature leave-behind would be WOWWWWWW written somewhere in red lipstick or something (although we really can’t picture Owen Wilson as a serial killer… but maybe that means he’d be the perfect choice?!)

We’ll ignore the fact that in Cardi’s hit song “Bodak Yellow” she was referring to her red-bottomed Christian Louboutin heels with the line “these is bloody shoes,” and will admit that in the context of this scenario, a super high heel WOULD make a great murder weapon.

Jonathan and Drew Scott from HGTV’s show The Property Brothers?! This one’s out of left field BUT… “twice the crime in half the time” could be their slogan.

Which Hollywood celebrity comes to mind for you?
