- Tiger King, which stars Joe Exotic, has quickly become the most-watched show in America.
- Exotic has seen varying levels of sympathy from Z-list celebs, while other personalities pimp themselves out to portray him in future shows.
- The popularity of Tiger King, and especially Joe Exotic, highlights how decadent society has become.
I’m not sure if it’s a result of the ongoing coronavirus lockdown that has trapped much of the US inside, but the popularity of Tiger King star Joe Exotic seems to be a “thing” now.
That’s right. During the worst pandemic in recent times, society is championing a polyamorous zoo owner who tried to hire someone to kill a rival.
It seems everyone is trying to get on Joe Exotic bandwagon
The popularity of the Netflix show seems to be inspiring others to get their slice of the Exotic pie. Only this week, Rob Lowe announced that he’s interested in portraying the big cat-owning scumbag.
Joe Exotic himself is looking to take advantage of his newfound fame
Joe Exotic is many things, but he’s not an idiot. He’s taken note of his popularity following the release of the Netflix show and is trying to use it to his advantage.
Whilegullible “celebrities” like Cardi B make ridiculous statements about how Exotic is innocent, based entirely on what they’ve seen on a television show, Joe Exotic is looking to do what he does best. Exploit the situation.
Speaking on his newfound fame, Joe Exotic commented:
For Netflix, that threshold hasn’t been met as yet. Too Hot To Handle arrives on the streaming platform this month. A show that sees a cash prize slowly decreases every time any of the contestants on an island hook up with each other.
It really is the definition of trash television, and it seems to be where Netflix is headed.
But what’s most unsettling is that the streaming giant is only providing the content that its audience craves.
