Netflix documentary Tiger King has got everyone hooked. It's also become one of the meme-able series of our time (just wait until you see the full list of the best memes at the end).
But now Carole Baskin has brought out quite a controversial new set of merch ...
There's a new Netflix show in town...
via: NetflixAnd it is perhaps the most binge-able yet.
Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gives us a majestic insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.
via: NetflixThe 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: IMDBIt is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America's big cat community... and we cannot get enough.
There was a lot of drama over the years...
via: NetflixAnd 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. Yikes.
The show takes things to a whole new level...
via: NetflixAnd 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: NetflixAnd who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?
But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...
via: NetflixAnd when Joe's life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.
Joe is an openly gay man...
via: YoutubeAnd 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: NetflixJoe 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: NetflixJoe 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: IMDBBut 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: IMDBAnd of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.
The memes have been flooding in...And even though this is poking fun at real-life events, we cannot get enough during our COVID-19 lockdown. You can read the full list of all the best Tiger King memes at the end...
And we must say...Tiger King couldn't have possibly come at a better time.
There are some things we wish we could unsee...And this is certainly one of them. Maybe this is what Joe would have looked like if he won his presidential campaign?
We also can't unsee this...Sadly.
Joe Exotic is said to be revelling in his Tiger King induced fame...
via: imdbAnd now it seems he has got bigger ideas beyond the documentary.
Joe is already thinking about a biopic...
While there are no movie adaptations currently in the works...Joe has a few names in mind for who he would want to play him.
And he has very high expectations.Because, according to one of the series’ directors, Rebecca Chaiklin, Joe has named Brad Pitt or David Spade as his preferred actors to play him in any future movie adaptation. Well, um, dream big... that's what they say, right?
Another Tiger King star also has ideas.
via: TwitterJohn Finlay has now offered his opinion on who should play him to People magazine.
"[Channing Tatum] always had a special place in my heart.""He did a shout-out to my distant cousin; she died of stage-four brain cancer. When he did his shout-out, he did it because it was on her bucket list."
"He has a special place in my heart because of that.""But he’s a really good actor, and a lot of people are putting names out there with him in it."
Finlay has another idea, too."[Shia LaBeouf] would probably be a good choice because with a beard he can look like me, and he can relate to me."
We can (kind of) see it!
via: IMDBWe can't wait to see if this dream comes true!
But now Carole Baskin has gone viral for another reason.
via: Tread365Yep, that's right. She's brought out branded face masks.
