Netflix released a documentary series about Canadian killer Luka Magnotta called Don't F**k with Cats today, and people are having all kinds of reactions to it.
The series follows the amateur online sleuths that tracked down the identity of a mysterious figure who posted videos of himself torturing cats on the internet. He continued to post increasingly disturbing videos of animals, until eventually the victim was a human.
The killer is revealed to be Magnotta, who was eventually apprehended in Berlin and extradited back to Canada.
He was charged with first-degree murder, committing an indignity to a dead body, publishing obscene material, mailing obscene material and criminally harassing Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other members of Parliament.
He is currently imprisoned at Archambault Institution in Quebec.
As for Netflix's strange choice of title, it's a reference to the cat-loving internet people that uncovered Magnotta's disturbing online videos. As a press release notes, it's "the horrifying true story of a killer so consumed with achieving fame that he breaks the first rule of the internet: DON'T F**K WITH CATS."
See the trailer below.

The reaction to the documentary has been swift and widely varied on Twitter.
Some are disgusted that Magnotta is achieving the level of fame he wanted for his crimes, while others are totally captivated by the series.
