Tiger King star, Jeff Lowe, has been ruthlessly, yet hilariously, trolled by merciless fans of the show after he hosted a disastrous Reddit Q&A.

He was asking for it, I suppose...

These are some of the most brutal questions we've ever seen.

There's a new Netflix show in town...

via: Netflix

And it is perhaps the most binge-able yet.

Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gives us a tantalizing insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.

via: Netflix

The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.

But it isn't just about the tigers and lions...

via: IMDB

It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America's big cat community... and we cannot get enough.

There has been a lot of drama over the years...

via: Netflix

And Joe Exotic seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her.

The show takes things to a whole new level...

via: Netflix

And it has already been branded as "bonkers" by viewers but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't binge-worthy.

Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?

via: Netflix

And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?

But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...

via: Netflix

And when Joe's life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.

Joe is an openly gay man...

And after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems. Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn't at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.

And after this marriage tragically fell apart...

via: Netflix

Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her husband grew even bigger.

And last year, things took a turn for the worst.

via: Netflix

Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.

He hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path...

via: IMDB

But the FBI became involved and they thankfully managed to put a stop to this dangerous plan.

Many viewers believe that Joe belongs in prison after his alarming behavior...

via: IMDB

And of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.

But the scandal doesn't end with Joe's imprisonment.

A new theory has been circulating about Carole Baskin's first husband, who mysteriously vanished (or was murdered and fed to the tigers...) over twenty-years-ago.

They think her husband is...

High-key conman and Las Vegas lothario Jeff Lowe, who is one of the men who helped the authorities put Joe Exotic behind bars.

The theory was shared to Facebook.

One fan of the show wrote: "Jeff is Carole’s abusive first husband who she paid off to go take Joe down. She rented a mansion and that caw to draw him in." "Jeff and (James Garretson) even admit they directed Joe to kill Carole. When Joe didn’t do it, they needed him to pay, he didn’t. So Jeff sent his friend and he ‘chickened out’ on purpose."

They continued:

"Carole then paid them all off. All the convicts around him, except (Kelci Saffery) and (John Reinke). Too bad I wasn’t the police investigator, I would of definitely caught this bull****." "Jeff even told the cops about the Tiger skulls, because they didn’t have enough to keep him otherwise on the bogs ‘killing plot’."

Do you believe it?

There are certainly a few big flaws in the conspiracy theory, such as the fact that their ages don't add up - but many people are still liking the idea of it.

People have been going crazy on social media...

They truly do believe that Jeff is Carole's missing husband.

But now, Jeff himself has spoken out...

via: IMDB

And, as you can imagine, he gave the most bizarre response.

Jeff recently hosted a Reddit Q&A, where fans of the show could ask him anything they wanted.

via: Netflix

What could possibly go wrong? Obviously, Redditers went to town on poor Jeff, with over 5,000 users asking a question... And some of them were hilariously brutal.

But, first, they started with the obvious.

via: IMDB

A fan questioned Lowe on his thoughts on the Carole Baskin theory, asking: "There's a conspiracy all over the internet this week that you were Carole Baskins' first husband. Have you seen the picture comparison and what's your take on this? She doesn't seem like your type!"

He gave the most grotesque response.

Because, of course, he did. He replied: "You're a brilliant man and she is not my type. If I was stuck on a deserted island with her, I would f*** a coconut. I've seen the side by side pictures. It looks more like John and Joe's love child." Stay classy, Jeff.

But fans of the show weren't quite finished with him there.

The questions continued to flood in, some serious and some, ahem, not so serious. And, while Jeff answered a few generic questions about the show, he left plenty unanswered, for pretty obvious reasons. Keep scrolling to see the best ones...

Let's start with something simple.

via: Netflix

"Yeah, I have a lot of questions. Number one: how dare you?" I couldn't have worded it better myself.

Another user pointed out Jeff's foolishness at even hosting the Q&A in the first place...

via: Netflix

"Did you expect this to be anything other than a roast?" Get in the real world, Jeff!

But a different user had a lengthy question for Jeff's wife, Lauren.

via: Netflix

"Hi Jeff, I actually have a question for your wife. Lauren, why do you put up with this disgusting f****** a**hole and let him belittle you and treat you like trash? What derailed your self-esteem so much that you would continue to be around this 13-year-old dumb f*** trapped in a geriatric patient, whose primary concern is whether or not his peacock feathers are bright enough. You deserve better than to waste your life with an a evil conman. Call Carole Baskin, she might have some ideas that could help you out." Ouch.

It turns out that many people are "Team Lauren"...

via: Netflix

"Do you think someday your wife Lauren will wise up and feed you to the tigers, completing the cycle and fulfilling the ancient prophecies?"

And some wanted to foil his future plans of adultery.

via: Netflix

"Hey Jeff, when you bang your babysitter while your wife nurses your new-born baby, will you think of this comment? Thanks Jeff."

People were so curious about Jeff's supposed "love life"...

via: Netflix

"Why did you hire a model from Vegas to fly out, take 1 single picture, and then claim she was your hot nanny?" Okay, I'm very disappointed that he didn't answer this one.

But most of the questions focused on Jeff's rather bizarre aesthetic...

via: Netflix

"Why do you dress like a high school weed dealer? Aren’t you pushing 60?" I'm going to throw all journalistic integrity out of the window here by saying that I "lol'd" at this.

His dress-sense really is quite peculiar, isn't it?

via: Netflix

"Why do you dress like you went through a midlife crisis 10 years ago, and just got stuck there?"

Reddit users had some pretty hilarious comparisons for his look...

via: Netflix

"As a senior citizen, why do you dress yourself like an anthropomorphized can of Monster Energy?"

And some of them were savage.

via: Netflix

"Hi yeah, my main question is did you marinate in a Ziploc bag overnight before this roasting?"

And, of course, his questionable choice of headwear came up.

via: Netflix

"Are you bald under the bandana?"

His smirk seemed to concern some people, too...

via: Netflix

"Hi Jeff, Thanks a bunch for doing this AMA! I have two questions for you: Why do you dress like Limp Bizkit’s creepy douchebag roadie? Why do you always have the self-satisfied grin of a man who just got away with farting very quietly?"

And, of course, there was this very important question.

via: Netflix

"What is your opinion on James Garrett's Jet Ski Scene?" We need answers.

But it didn't take long for the loyal Joe Exotic fans to come out...

via: Netflix

"How does it feel to get away with framing a man for soliciting murder?" "Framing" is a questionable word...

Some people simply want to see him behind bars.

via: Netflix

"How long do you think it'll be before you're behind bars where you belong?"

And some wanted to seriously ask him if he thought his behavior with the tigers was acceptable.

via: Netflix

"Do you still considering wheeling around cubs in roller bags to be an ok practice?" And, of course, he is yet to reply.

Still not bored of the spectacular roast of Jeff Lowe?
