The documentary has convinced viewers to "never" have a roommate

One person tweeted: "Watching #WorstRoommateEver on Netflix and this is exactly why I will never have a roommate!! Me and my man forever and if he’s not gonna be in the picture it will just be ME!!!! Straight psychos," while another added: "Watching #WorstRoommateEver on Netflix got me really rethinking if I want to have a roommate."

A third viewer commented: "These stories make me glad that my share housing experience was nowhere near this bad, and I decided to live by myself instead of getting a flatmate years ago to help with the rent and keep me company. Also that my dad lectured me endlessly about safety," while another agreed, adding: "Literally confirms why I choose to live alone and not have a roommate."
