‘Tiger King’: Where Everyone in the Series Is NowLike a stealthy tiger padding through the jungle, no one saw Netflix’s “Tiger King” coming until it was too late to un-see the questionable conditions the animals were kept in, and the questionable taste in tattoos of nearly everyone involved. It was the most tweeted-about show in the country this week, with celebrities like Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto weighing in.
Joe Exotic is planning to embrace his new status as a global star after the documentary series Tiger King made him one of the most talked-about people of the year.
Yes, the former zoo owner has been the topic of millions of conversations worldwide in the last month after the docuseries dropped on Netflix.

The 57-year-old has been receiving lots of letters and emails according to husband Dillon and is loving the attention the Netflix series has brought him worldwide.
