Joe Exotic's Husband Says Travis' Shock Death Should Not Have Been On The Show

Publish date:

Dillon Passage, the current husband of Tiger King star Joe Exotic, says that the tragic death of Exotic's ex-husband, Travis, should not have been included on the Netflix show.

*spoiler alert*

In the series, gun enthusiast Travis Maldonado accidentally shoots himself in the head in front of Exotic's campaign manager, after stating that his weapon was not loaded.

"I feel like some things shouldn't have been shown in the docuseries, like Travis' accident in the office," Dillon explained to Entertainment Tonight.

"I feel like that was very personal to Joe and that it was used for an emotional purpose and to get people more drawn in to the show," Dillon continued. "I don't think that's fair to Travis. He probably would not have wanted that put all over the world. ... And I didn't tell [Joe] that it was in there. I feel like he's definitely gonna be upset about it, so it's best that he doesn't know."
