Joe Exotic, the star of the popular documentary ‘ Tiger king’ is seeking $94 million dollars in a suit claiming that a huge conspiracy led to his incarceration snd to the death of his mother.
If you haven’t watched ‘Tiger King’ yet… what’s wrong with you, but also stop reading this because spoilers.
Joe Exotic is claiming that he was falsely arrested and imprisoned, and the victim of malicious prosecution and discrimination.
He is suing suing the U.S. Department of Interior and the U.S. Federal Wildlife Service for placing the “generic tiger” on the endangered species list, which he says was a direct target at his business and led to the closing of his beloved park. He also claims that because he was a gay man with the worlds largest generic tiger and cross bred tiger collection he was targeted as well.
He wants $78,840,000 for the loss of his personal property and 18 years’ worth of his work with tigers for this.
He is also going after his former business partner Jeff Lowe, and it looks like the Feds are actually already trying to put some evidence together to nab him as well.
Finally he is seeking $15 million because the collective pain and anguish of the whole criminal pursuit after Joe led to his mothers death, in his words.
Oh i am so excited for the update to this documentary! It is going to be SO GOOD!!!
