Memes about former zookeeper Joe Exotic have been floating around the internet since Netflix released the Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness documentary. The eight-part series is wild from start to finish, and viewers find it hard to fathom that it is based on true events.
Jumping on the hype is Donald Trump Jr., who has shared an image of his father’s face superimposed on Joe Exotic’s mugshot. The meme seems to have been created by Instagram user @mistermorris55, who also used the same template on various celebrities.
“Hahahahaha I love the internet,” Donald Trump Jr. wrote in his caption. “I heard about this guy.”
It’s likely that he hasn’t seen the documentary, as it paints a less-than-perfect picture of the incarcerated criminal.
Tiger King circles the life of the tiger breeder, notorious for his personal zoo of exotic animals. He tried to assassinate rival and animal rights activist Carole Baskin, and the attempt left him with a 22-year sentence in federal prison. Joe Exotic also tried to run for president.
“Who wants to tell him?” Vox journalist Aaron Rupar tweeted.
“The king of self-owns raises the bar,” another Twitter user wrote.
Pleased with the hype, producers of the documentary might be considering a Tiger King sequel. “We’re not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there’s a lot that’s still unfolding in it,” director Rebecca Chaiklin told EW. If part two gets green-lit, Chaiklin promises it will be “just as dramatic and just as colorful.”
