Joe Exotic says the hit Netflix series surrounding his life is the worst thing that has ever happened to him because it made the public believe he tried to kill Carol Baskin – and yet he has forgiven everyone, including Carole, because he risks dying in prison.
We spoke to Joe on Friday, he called from federal prison in Fort Worth, TX…and said what “Tiger King” became is what ruined his life. He says all the content he filmed was for a separate project — years before “TK” — and after that, producers used his interview and added everyone else on the show to create a fake “conspiracy to kill Carol”.
He says everything was done to get TV ratings, and he maintains he is the innocent victim of this production plot.
As we reported, Joe is currently fight against cancer it is believed to have spread from his prostate to his bladder… and as he faces his own mortality – he recently signed a do not resuscitate order – he says he has found a way to forgive Carole and even Jeff Lowe.
As for Carole, Joe credits their rivalry to good business maneuvering — he says it’s common in the animal rescue industry — and admits he and CB benefited from continuing each other.
Joe gave us a glimpse of his daily life behind bars – saying depression is yet another battle for him. He also says he’s met some interesting characters over the years…including cartel bosses and Ted KaczynskiAKA the Unabomber.
As for what’s next, he says he still hopes he’ll be released from prison and wants to marry his fiancée. Seth Posey. He also talked about officially running for president in 2024 as a libertarian, and told us why he’s the man for the job…even though he’s behind bars.
