Viewers Are Saying Netflix's Don't F*** With Cats Needs To Come With Trigger Warnings

Warning: the trailer below contains some images some of you may find disturbing

Netflix's latest true crime documentary Don't F*** with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer centres on disturbing case of Canadian killer Luka Magnotta, but some viewers are finding the grim story too difficult to watch.

The three-parter tells the story of Magnotta who shared disgusting videos of himself killing animals - starting off with two kittens - online, before eventually recording himself brutally killing Chinese student Lin Jun.

Deanna Thompson - who uses the online alias Baudi Moovan - was part of an online community which attempted to track down Magnotta after the dark videos of animal torture were shared online; in the first episode she breaks down in tears while she describes what happens in the video - titled 1 Boy 2 Kittens - and edited clips are shown on screen.

While the documentary doesn't show the videos in full, many animal lovers have taken to social media to share trigger warnings to other viewers about the grisly content of the series.

One wrote: "Hey important PSA: if you get an advertisement for a Netflix series called Don't F*** with Cats, I am here to give you the extreme content warning the trailer doesn't give you.

"Big ass CW: animal cruelty."

Another warned: "If anyone else has a sensitivity to cats dying or being tortured please don't watch the preview for Don't F*** with Cats on Netflix. I am extremely sensitive to this and I'm literally laying here having a panic attack."

While a post from The Sisters Grimm Podcast shared a list of the 'trigger moments':


Another slammed the 'exploitative genre' of true crime, writing: "Imagine being Lin Jun's family and seeing a documentary about the brutal, horrific racist torture and murder of your relative (just seven years ago) be released with the cheeky title Don't F*** with Cats."

If none of this has put you off, Don't F*** with Cats is streaming on Netflix right now.
