Netflix’s Tiger King star Joe Exotic spoke up about Carole Baskin being awarded his Oklahoma zoo. According to him and his management this is ‘treachery’ and yet another ’emotional blow to an already fragile’ Exotic.
Exotic’s management team spoke out on Wednesday on Twitter and called Baskin’s alleged campaign against Exotic ‘treachery’ in a statement that also acknowledged the death of George Floyd, a black man killed while in police custody in Minnesota.
‘While we again acknowledge it is truly time to pray for justice for George Floyd’s family as well as an end to systemic racism in America, we must address Carol Baskin’s treachery before it goes unchecked,’ they wrote on Twitter.
In a separate Twitter post, Exotic’s management said Baskin’s takeover of G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Park ‘is a dark day in history.’
This week, a judge granted Baskin, 58, full control of Exotic’s infamous 16.4-acre G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, after ruling in her favor over fraudulent land transfer documents.
Exotic, whose real name is Joe Maldonado-Passage, 57, is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence in a botched murder-for-hire scheme against Baskin and additional animal abuse charges.
