ABC/Lou Rocco; Randy HolmesNetflix’s Tiger King has become “even more viral than COVID-19” since its premiere last weekend, according to The Daily Social Distancing Show host Trevor Noah. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, millions are binge-watching shows like this tale of an incarcerated zookeeper.
Celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Cardi B., Bun B, and Noah couldn’t wait to run to social media and share their reviews of series star Joe Exotic.
Born Joseph Maldonado-Passage, Joe is currently serving time for animal abuse-related charges and for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill his tiger rival, Carole Baskin.
Snoop Dogg dropped jaws yesterday when he shared a meme of his face superimposed on Joe’s body as, “Exotic Snoop”.
On Monday’s episode, Noah called Exotic “one of the weirdest people you will ever meet in your life, he could also be President of the United States.”
He said Exotic and President Donald Trump are both “self-absorbed, disorganized, obsessed with conspiracy theories, and pretending to be an expert in a field where he has no idea what he’s talking about. He’s just winging it, which again, should feel very familiar,” he said.
Noah also joked about Joe getting out to become president would mean the world seeing tigers in the White House.
Just the other day, Cardi B. wanted to start a GoFundMe account to help Joe, tweeting “He shall be free.”
It’s unknown how she’ll feel after seeing a recent viral video that surfaced on Twitter of Exotic complaining about not being able to say the n-word. “What the hell, is this discrimination? I’m white, I can’t say the N-word?” he ranted in the clip.
Texas rapper Bun B. was not here for it. “No Joe. You’re pathetic, he captioned with a TMZ video of the clip. “Later for this clown.”
