Just when you think that Tiger King Joe Exotic can't get any worse, a video has surfaced online of the incarcerated big cat owner, ranting that he's not allowed to use the n-word.
"What's going on, in here, in this country?" Joe asks in the video. "It's absolutely pathetic. I can't say the N-word, but you can get on YouTube, and watch any Black man's rap video, and they're calling each other the N-word. What the hell, is this discrimination? I'm white, I can't say the N-word?"
No Joe, you can't.
In the series, the openly gay big cat owner ran for both president and for governor. He lost both times.
Nobody was shocked. Joe Exotic is a glorified redneck and folks assumed that he was freely using the word anyway. The video is reportedly from lost footage in 2015. It's possible that the entire footage was lost in the fire seen in the docuseries.
