Arguably the wildest series streaming on Netflix right now, Rick Kirkham's big cat true-crime docuseries Tiger King has stolen the No. 1 spot for the most popular TV show on Rotten Tomatoes.

While this ridiculous saga and its central focus, "gay, gun-toting redneck with a mullet"/exotic animal hoarder/living cartoon character Joe Exotic, offer plenty of odd tangents to sink your fangs into, the show spends a not-insignificant amount of time spotlighting Joe's favorite side hustle: his burgeoning country music career...

In the doc, Joe shows how he is a man of many talents, which includes a music career.

The Netflix series has enraptured many viewers stuck at home during the coronavirus quarantine, and ideas about who should play Exotic, Baskin and the other colorful characters soon sprung up on Twitter. First entering the GW Exotic Animal Park at the age of 19, Maldonado, who identifies as straight, is quickly pounced on by Joe, who marries both Maldonado and John Finlay in a three-way ceremony. The part that drew Shaq into the equation is that Joe Exotic was apparently abusive to his tigers, and was charged with counts of violating the Endangered Species Act and apparently shooting and killing some of his tigers. He's got some great hits, including "Here Kitty Kitty" and "I Saw A Tiger".

Tiger King star Saff is transgender and uses he/him pronouns.

The singer's sympathy for Joe Exotic reached a fever pitch when she suggested that she may start a GoFundMe page for him. That's all we will tell you for now as you should really go watch it. Do I put donations to these zoos to help these tigers out?

The rapper later added: "I stan him.Leave me alone".

Some were charmed by Baskin's famous sign-on line, "Hey, all you cool cats and kittens".

'In my view, the biggest con artists of them all were Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, ' he said, 'I believe they are devoid of integrity, don't care about the animals and clearly, clearly, don't care about the truth'.

"Craziest thing about Tiger King is how cheap it is to buy a tiger".

"We went back a couple times", he said.
