Joe Exotic, the star of the Netflix documentary, Tiger King, has spoken out from prison for the first time since the docu-series aired.

And Exotic thinks he'll be out of prison very soon.

"When I walk out of here, am I going to be as crazy as before? That will never change," he laughed.

"You know it would be nice if I could actually see me being famous out there, but I've seen these same four walls for a year and a half now," he explained.

Since the show aired, Exotic has been slammed for his poor treatment of his animals. He too thinks he should have treated them better.

"Go sit in a cage with your animals for a week," he said. "I mean, when I left the zoo and I sent my chimpanzees to the sanctuary in Florida and imagined what my chimpanzees went through for 18 years, I -- I'm ashamed of myself."
