Celebs React To Joe Exotic: Tiger King


Netflix’s Tiger King has folks talking. And
it’s not just your average, un-exotic Joe who’s utterly baffled by the show’s unabashed
mayhem. Celebrities have been taking to Twitter to try and make sense of the madness. Tiger King is so beloved that the week following
its release, celebs were already fighting for the chance to play Joe Exotic in a potential
biopic. While our bets would’ve been placed on David Spade, since Exotic’s aesthetic is
pretty much Joe Dirt in sequins and leopard print, Dax Shepard and Edward Norton duked
it out on Twitter for the coveted role. Shepard kicked off the cat fight by writing: “If I don’t get cast as Joe Exotic in the
eventual biopic, Hollywood is broken.” Norton swiftly replied, “Um, step aside, pal. You’re way too young
and buff and you know it. You could probably pull off Maldonado still, actually. Wouldn’t
that be fun?” It’s hard to imagine that anyone is as well-versed
in crazy roles as Norton, who starred in both Fight Club and American History X. A Tiger
King biopic could be exactly what he’s been training for. “I know I’m not a licensed critter control
specialist, however I am Mitchell’s best friend and he knows I just love this kind of funky
junk.” But Netflix actually seemed more into the
idea of Shepard taking on the role. The streaming service replied to the Parenthood star’s tweet
with, quote, “I’m liking what I’m hearing.” Sorry Norton. “Chase me. I’m your pig.” Michael Ian Black has been laying low for
the past couple of years. The last we saw him, he had a small recurring role in the
Netflix dramedy Insatiable, but it doesn’t look like he’s going to be laying low for
long. Tiger King has inspired the star to consider following in Joe Exotic’s footsteps,
which is anything but a quiet life. He tweeted: “Craziest thing about Tiger King is how cheap
it is to buy a tiger. Two grand? I’m definitely getting a couple tigers.” Apparently, the whole plot behind We Bought
A Zoo wasn’t all that expensive. Do you get a discount if you buy in bulk? Jared Leto better have gotten some good meditation
in during his 12-day silent desert retreat, because he’s going to need it once he finishes
Tiger King. While he was busy relaxing and reflecting without the luxury of WiFi, the
rest of the world was watching Tiger King’s trailer and bracing themselves for insanity.
Leto was thrown right into the tiger’s den when the show premiered a couple of days after
he announced that he had rejoined civilization. And from the looks of it, he found himself
a TV and queued up Tiger King without delay. “Not again the TV.” “Ma, ma, come on ma. Why you have to make
such a big deal outta this, ma? You know you’ll get the set back in a couple of hours.” Leto has always been a fan of good cosplay,
whether he’s dressing up as the second coming of Christ alongside Lana Del Ray at the Met
Gala or diving deep into his film roles. This time around, he decided to try on his best
Joe Exotic and tweeted out a bunch of photos of himself in a cowboy hat and a gold and
purple Western-style button down while holding a stuffed puma. He captioned the post “#JaredLetoTigerKing.” At this point, we wouldn’t put it past Leto
to dive so deep into this that he finds himself lip syncing over country songs despite the
fact that, you know, he can actually sing. Leave it to Kim Kardashian West to be a few
days late to the Tiger party. One day she’s casually explaining how her totally normal
bathroom with her totally normal sink works for those of us poor enough that our houses
can’t be described as “cavernous.” Another day, she’s letting her six-year-old accessorize
with a $10,000 Hermes Birkin Bag like it’s normal. She’s the queen of understatements,
and it’s certainly apparent in her response to Tiger King. Two days after the Netflix series’ premiere,
the star boldly asked her 64.4 million Twitter followers: “Has anyone seen Tiger King on Netflix?!?!
It is crazy!!!!” To her credit, she has been stuck inside,
homeschooling her four children, which she described to Jimmy Fallon as, quote, “insanity.” “I’m like hiding from them.” Fortunately, the reality star later realized
her mistake, and followed-up, saying: “Wow the amount of texts I’ve gotten about
Tiger King since I tweeted about it all have mentioned their belief that Carol killed her
husband! What are your thoughts? Do you think Carol killed him?” Actor Jerry O’Connell is in deep with Tiger
King. The star threw out a hot take on one of the show’s most debated conspiracies: Did
Carole Baskin kill her husband? For those who’ve only waded in Tiger King’s kiddy pool,
Baskin’s late husband, Don Lewis, mysteriously vanished sometime in the ’90s. O’Connell tweeted: “Just tested positive for thinking Carole
Baskin fed her husband to those tigers.” So, is anybody standing by him? Where’s the
evidence? Well, it’s slim. Joe Exotic’s music video for “Here Kitty Kitty” depicts someone
resembling Baskin feeding what’s implied to be human meat to a tiger. The video’s description
states: “There is one way to get a message across
and that is with music. Everyone loves music. It is believed that in 1997 a [woman] in Tampa
Florida killed her husband and fed him to the Tigers in order to get all of his property
and money. People Magazine even did a story on it.” Does Exotic know something we don’t? Considering
Exotic was convicted of ordering multiple hits on Baskin, which landed him his 22-year
prison sentence, he’s not exactly the most reliable narrator. Baskin has also denied
the claims. “I am broke as s—, I got some judgement
against me from some b—- down there in Florida.” For former Bachelor contestant Wells Adams,
Tiger King had some serious implications, and we’re not talking about murder or the
very real concern of animal abuse. We’re talking about the future of the nation. Sarah Hyland’s
fiance had the very depressing revelation that the headline-grabbing cast are, indeed,
voters. At least the ones that haven’t been convicted of felonies. Adams tweeted: “You know what’s crazy? The people in #TigerKing
can totally vote. Like in elections and stuff.” About a week later, Adams seemed to be less
concerned about his grave comments. The star was fully embracing the Tiger King life, tweeting: “Am I learning ‘Here, Kitty Kitty’ on the
guitar whilst wearing a wig on a Sunday morning? Yes. Yes I am.” Move over Dax Shepard, Adams is actively rehearsing. Cardi B has been taking us along on her Tiger
King journey, which is filled with flip-flopping opinions and eye-opening revelations. After a few false starts, the star wrote a
tweet that suggests she’s one of the many Exotic stans who think Carol Baskin did, indeed,
feed her murdered husband to the family pets. As the hours crept past midnight, the rapper
expressed her support for Exotic, tweeting: “They did Joe so dirty over and over again.” About an hour later, Cardi shifted gears again,
tweeting, “Who you think is more wrong? Narcissist joe?
Or Greedy Carol? And why?” Ultimately, none of her fans could convince
her to take Baskin’s side. The Bodak Yellow singer came back to her original conclusion:
Exotic was treated unfairly. Though the Tiger King is worth an estimated $10 million, Cardi
considered giving him some financial support, writing: “Bout to start a gofundme account for Joe.
He shall be free.” The tweet prompted many users to point out
instances of animal abuse he allegedly perpetrated. Wiz Khalifa was among the many celebs watching
Tiger King, and he certainly used it as an opportunity to slam the age old practice of
clout chasing once again. Khalifa still seems to have the concept on his mind after releasing
his collaborative track “No Clout Chasin'” in early 2019, and if there’s anyone who has
clout right now, it’s Joe Exotic, the star of the most popular TV program in the United
States. “I can almost promise you some of you will
be urinated on.” Playing off the lion’s share of tweets urging
for Exotic’s release, Khalifa tweeted: “At tha rate we’re goin a lawyer gon take
joe case for the clout and really free the tiger king” In the run-up to Tiger King’s premiere, New
Zealand-based actress and singer Lucy Lawless had her sights set on live-tweeting The Bachelorette’s
New Zealand spin-off. But she took a bit of a reprieve to turn on Tiger King and check
out what everyone has been talking about. As it turns out, she’s not really a fan unless
she’s watching it in the way you’d watch a train wreck, in which case, we are totally
guilty as well. “It’s a real life tornado and there ain’t
nothing you can do.” The thing about Tiger King is that almost
none of the characters are particularly likable. We have Joe Exotic, who was recently sentenced
to 22 years in prison for murder-for-hire; Carole Baskin, who some people think murdered
her husband; Mario Tabraue, who allegedly ran a $75 million drug ring and casually glossed
over murder; and “Doc” Antle, who may or may not be the leader of a cat-themed sex cult.
Rather than Baskin’s husband being the sole person in the series possibly fed to the tigers,
Lawless felt like it should probably just be everyone. She wrote: “Please God, let the tigers eat every last
one of those folks. Horrible.” Hey, someone had to say it. Meghan McCain is a woman known for her strong
opinions. She wouldn’t have her job on The View if she wasn’t prepared to ask tough questions,
and Tiger King is absolutely brimming with them. Like most of us, the star was left completely
bewildered and confused after she watched the Netflix doc, particularly at the pure
passion of the employee who returned to work days after his amputation. “I have literally LIMITLESS questions, opinions
and observations about #TigerKingNetflix and the cast of characters/conspiracy theories/people
who get their arms bitten off but return to work. Also are all exotic animal people this…bizarre?
I have so [many] questions!!” Sorry, but none of us actually have the answers.
We’re just as confused as you. Sylvester Stallone is already casting his
own Tiger King biopic with his family. The guy played Rambo and Rocky. Of course, he’d
make an excellent casting choice in any potential biopic, but what’s more surprising is how
his kids fit in. In a tweet captioned, quote, “TIGER KING fever has taken over,” Sly linked
his fans to his hilarious family Instagram video. In the video, Stallone’s daughters don a cowboy
hat, fake facial hair, and fake tattoos while they pose as Joe Exotic, John Finlay, and
Erik Cowie. The girls’ mother Jennifer Flavin Stallone poses as Carole Baskin, and Sly,
who’s in the final cut, mean-mugs as Jeff Lowe. They even dress up the family dog as
a lion, which isn’t quite right, but we’re assuming they’re working with what they’ve
got. Perhaps Sylvester could get Al Pacino to take on the role of Mario Tabraue, the
kingpin who allegedly inspired his Scarface character. YouTuber Hank Green has uncovered the true
tragedy of Tiger King, or at least whatever tragedy comes second to murder-for-hire, a
missing persons case, amputation, divorce, and possible animal abuse. It’s Joe Exotic’s
music career, but not because it’s so bad. It’s unfortunate that it’s so bizarrely good.
Green tweeted: “The second most upsetting thing about Tiger
King is that his songs aren’t bad.” Green should rest-assured knowing that, according
to reports, Exotic’s music career wasn’t actually him so it’s unlikely that he’ll release an
album from prison. Yes, he still stood on a truck in a cowboy hat in the middle of a
CGI storm. We can’t ever take that blessed moment away, but Vanity Fair reports that
the Tiger King commissioned two musicians, Vince Johnson and Danny Clinton, to write
his hits, and they took on the project pro bono before knowing he’d pull a Milli Vanilli.
In fact, Exotic’s former producer Rick Kirkham told Vanity Fair that the star, quote, “couldn’t
even hold a tune. It was just so ludicrous.” Um, we think the word he’s looking for is…exotic. Check out one of our newest videos right here!

  1. Bruh that documentary was some country shit…. but I couldn’t stop watching? and yes I believe Carol B killed her husband

  2. Tiger king is fool he’s in jail where he belongs now Hollywood needs to stop giving him so much attention!!

  3. It is so sad that Carole is being portrayed this way. My friend's son has volunteered for her for several summers and loves her rescue , the wildlife, and Carol. My daughter is a Floridian who won't watch " Tiger King" because of the portrayal.. I had a Savannah Cat breeder tell me about Joe Exotic. He was anti Carole because he is Wild/domestic hybrid breeder, and Carole wants this to be illegal. Joe Exotic is a cruel piece of garbage and is dangerous to all life on this planet, people especially. I won't watch it because I followed Exotic because he was a creep and it was shocking he was not in jail decades ago. It's his husband's supposed accidental death that should be investigated, and I'd bet he is responsible for Carole's husband's disappearance.

  4. Bro noooo David spade please. I wanna see him do a grounded real take if they do a movie. Just like Adam Sandler

  5. First off tiger king is going to a woman. Its Netflix of course its going to be some short Asian woman because of diversity….

  6. Nobody should be siding with this animal abusing piece of crap. I have no idea how anyone can side with him. I don't understand how it is even up for debate that he wanted to get Carole killed when he literally spoke to 2 people with the clear intention to pay them to commit the act. The man is sick and the people supporting him are idiotic.

  7. This is the role David Spade was made to play. Dax is to Young, and too brash. Jared Letos feminine demeanor will drown the character who's already feminine. I agree Dax would make a great Travis!

  8. Cardi B needs to just up. No one in that documentary is redeemable. Meaning all the owners and operators of big cat parks and rescues. They all need to be in prison.

  9. The person who went back to work soon after they lost theyr arm was a she not a he although I admit it is hard to tell.

  10. Covid-19 is making the world genuinely loose their minds. We making this guy famous? We're glorifying animal abuse? Is this the new world?

  11. Carole Baskins had MORE than tigers at her "animal rescue". How hard is it to get rid of a dead body using a few pigs/wild hogs?

  12. I’m on joe’s side and I would love to see carol take a lie detector test. She’s so guilty and she pushed joe over the edge.

  13. Muscatine iowa collection of responders send to the muscatine fire department our police station cause miss ruff crime dog will come to LIFE of meeting miss ruff crime dog as miss smoky the bear will meet me smoky the bear reward from heaven for all e everything tv show toys education gift add and multiply and be fruitful God likes world people everything to be do of your choice to be part of of discovering true love and who we really are and could be as God knows us to be thank you amen

  14. So sad to have watched this . I wish that I didn’t. I believe that wild animals belong in the wild. No more treating animals like this!

  15. I think the whole lot should be in prison….. Joe, John, Passage, Carol and her husband, Doc, Tim Stark, etc

  16. She killed him. Sorry 5 years and one day. And she was feeding then rabbits. When short of food. She did it. He need does not deserve 22 years. Everyone was felons who put him away really!

  17. I cannot understand why more Hollwood Types are not up in arms about the poor animals being exploited by this asshole of a person !!!!!

  18. Watch This Documentary:
    Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist.
    ?Crazy ? like ? King

  19. If I was casting people I'd go with all Hollywood misfits…

    Lindsay Lohan as Carol
    Mel Gibson as Jeff Lowe
    And definitely Charlie Sheen because the man already has TIGER BLOOD !

  20. I actually like Joe, crazier than a shit house rat, but I think that he really did love those animals.

  21. The proof is not “slim” lol whoever does this page really sucks on their research! Perhaps if you YouTube and google the facts you wouldn’t look like an idiot! There is a lot of proof she killed her husband! Do your research please! I can’t watch this channel anymore.. Unfollow
