Most of us look at Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes and see the face of evil. We grieve for the victims and struggle to come to terms with the horrific darkness that shattered so many lives.
And then there are the disturbed and disturbing Twitter users who see not the face of evil, but the face of a total hottie.
I think James Holmes is kinda hot. I'd hit it.

If James Holmes would shave his head or dye his hair back to normal color, I'd say he's cute. #unpopularopinion

One person even declared support for the alleged murderer of a dozen moviegoers, including a 6-year-old girl.
A handful of Twitter users noticed the revolting trend and hit back:
I don't get how anyone could think James Holmes is cute. What the fuck is wrong with you.
