Why is everyone talking about Joe Exotic, The Tiger King?

Netflix docuseries: Tiger King.   Tiger King explained 

The Netflix docuseries Tiger King spends about 5 years following Joe Exotic and it’s now placed first on Netflix’s “top 10” most popular shows row. At the end of the day, Tiger King means to expose the exploitive business of big cat ownership, and many would say that it succeeds. As absolutely outlandish as each new detail may seem, Tiger King is a very true story.

Its characters. Exotic himself is not who you would expect to be the “Tiger King.” He describes himself as a “gay, gun-carrying redneck with a mullet,” he’s involved in a throuple, and he’s a country “singer” who stars in his own music videos on the side. Also, Exotic is convinced that Carole murdered her husband and, perhaps, fed him to her tigers.   What did Joe Exotic do 

Other key players like Myrtle Beach Safari owner recruits teenage apprentices who become trainers and, in some cases, his romantic partners. Exotic’s business partner is accused of sneaking tiger cubs into parties in Las Vegas. Former GW Zoo employee lost a hand to a tiger and went back to work days later as a show of loyalty to Exotic. And that’s only a fraction of what happens in this short docuseries…
