Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is Netflix’s new documentary series about the exploits of Joe Exotic, the former operator of Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park. The show is full of larger-than-life characters and shocking twists, and it’s got nearly everyone talking about it. Folks from all walks of life, including celebrities, are self-isolating due to COVID-19, and Tiger King certainly seems to be one thing we can all agree is worth watching.
Rainn Wilson posted a hilarious snapshot of “Dwight Exotic” to social media. It seems like its bears, beets, and big cats for The Office star now.
Jared Leto dressed the part when he held an online viewing party of Tiger King on Twitter. The actor donned a loud shirt and cowboy hat and encouraged followers to join the #JaredLetoCinemaClub as they started the show from its first episode.
The singer even joked about how familiar some of the unique outfits on the show were. Jared Leto even found old photos depicting him in a surprisingly similar ensemble as Carole Baskin.
Snoop Dogg had to jump in on all the memes about the show. The rap legend reposted a fan-made photoshop of him as Snoop Exotic.
Broadcast titan Larry King even got in on the jokes. He quickly dispelled the similarities between himself and Mr. Exotic with a quick tweet.
The Goop mastermind seems to be onboard with the popular theory that Carole Baskin was somehow involved in her husband’s mysterious disappearance, commenting in all caps, “THERE IS NO OTHER EXPLANATION.”
Future Catwoman Zoe Kravitz couldn’t get over the fact that Britney Spears once worked with Tiger King‘s Doc Antle for a VMA performance. The revelation drew shocked cat emojis from Reese Witherspoon, as well as an array of responses from other celebs, including: Lily-Rose Depp (“Omfg”), Hailey Bieber (“true”), Suki Waterhouse (“ommmmfg”), Princess Nokia (“I’m [expletive] screaming”), Laura Dern (“I’m shook”), Celeste Barber (“Hang. THE [expletive]. On!”), and more.
Paul F. Tompkins
Comedian and BoJack Horseman star Paul F. Tompkins pointed out that nearly everyone remotely connected to Tiger King has a unique sense of style and decor.
Author Hank Green made a good point about one of the most fascinating aspects of Joe Exotic: his music career. And let’s be honest, “I Saw A Tiger” is the ballad we all need right now.
Comedian Pete Holmes realized exactly why Joe Exotic seemed so familiar upon first glance. If there’s ever a dramatized recreation of the show’s events, this could be a perfect casting.
Dax Shepard and Edward Norton
It seems like Armchair Expert host Dax Shepard might disagree with Pete Holmes’ choice for Joe Exotic. Unfortunately, it seems like he’d be up against Motherless Brooklyn star and director Edward Norton, which makes it a tough race.
Even the old members of Blink-182 got a few jokes in. Tom DeLonge posted one of the more unique photos of Joe Exotic to emerge from the show, along with the caption indicating that he was Joe. Mark Hoppus refused to let that slide and commented, “The hell you’re Joe. I’m Joe.”
Xena: Warrior Princess legend Lucy Lawless was left hoping for some righteous vengeance. It’s good to see that she’s still a fierce warrior after all these years.
Kim Kardashian hyped the show up to her fans last week. The tweet quickly drew in over 30,000 likes and the comments poured in.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was overwhelmed by the popularity of the show and her initial tweet, leading to an incredibly important follow-up question. She might want to ask Gwyneth Paltrow how she feels!
Colin Hanks, whose father Tom Hanks just recently made it through a COVID-19 episode, easily identified the phrase that’s stuck with all of us after we started the series.
