Joe Exotic is a household name now, all thanks to Netflix's latest limited series Tiger King. The controversial series has already garnered 34 million views since the first 10 days of its release on Netflix. The series capsules the controversial and headline-grabbing life of Joseph Maldonado-Passage AKA Joe Exotic. From being a genuine big cat lover to opening his own private Zoo in Oklahoma, the USA to being embroiled in hiring a hitman to murder Carol Baskin, arch-rival, to being charged on 19 counts under Animal welfare rights, Joe's life is nothing less than a film script. Though currently he is lodged in jail for 22 years, his niece Chealsi Putman has lashed out at Netflix and made shocking claims that the OTT platform did not touch even one bit of the evil side of Joe which includes his involvement in animal sex. All this in an interview with Dailymail.
Apart from many shocking allegations, she made to Dailymail, his niece Putman says that there we many videos of certain people performing sexual acts on some animals that were in Joe's zoo. She told Dailymail that she herself never saw these videos but "I didn't want to see them, I just heard about them."
Putman also revealed that Joe liked to tape his partners (John Finlay, Dillon Passage and Travis) having sex with other men and many a time he used to be part of them too.
His niece Putman told Dailymail that she wanted to know who the 'Real Joe Exotic Is'. Hence she went ahead and has made such shocking and outrageous claims. Joe Exotic has been charged with numerous counts for selling and killing of tiger cubs. In fact, Putman says that her controversial uncle allegedly once asked her to transport a dead tiger cub to an Oklahoma City taxidermist just to be stuffed but she refused to do so.
Joe's husband Dillon admitted that Netflix will be airing an extra episode of live reunion and will be airing it soon. Currently, the Zoo owner Jeff Lowe who himself is part of Tiger King confirmed about the extra episode. He recently said, "Netflix is adding one more episode, next week, they are filming here next week."
