Tiger King’s Joe Exotic has been heavily scrutinized, even more so now with a newly-emerged video of him expressing his anger of not being able to say the N-word.
Standing in a cage with two tigers, Exotic was seen complaining to the camera about his frustrations.
“What is going on here in this country is absolutely pathetic,” Exotic said. “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, but they can.”
Social media users were appalled by his statement, though some of them described that they were not surprised about it. “This is literally the least surprising thing about this whole story,” one Twitter user wrote.
Cardi B, too, jumped on the bandwagon after she saw the video online. While she initially wanted to start a GoFundMe page to get Exotic released from prison, she later clarified that it was just a joke, and she immediately despised him after watching the video. “Feed him to the lions immediately,” the rapper tweeted.
