Joseph (Joe Exotic) Maldonado-Passage is all set to reveal the Tiger King’s side of the story in a tell-all book. The book “Tiger King: “Tiger King: The Official Tell-All Memoir,” is about to hit the bookshelves this November and published by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
The tell-all will focus on Maldonado-Passage, “a proud polygamist and self-proclaimed ‘gun-toting, gay redneck with a mullet,'” says a description on the publisher’s website. “Joe pulls back the curtain on the man behind the headlines. From a tragic childhood riddled with abuse to his dangerous feuds with big cat rivals and beyond, nothing is off the table.”
Exotic told E! News: “It’s going to be a truth-tell book… Everybody that’s ever done anything good, it’s going to be in there, and anybody that’s got bones in your closet, you better lookout. While the viewers thought it was all about fame and it was all about money and that’s the furthest from the truth. The only reason I even got into doing the television show at the park, and into doing all the crazy (expletive) I did, was to try to keep my staff and my animals safe. I had to act like a crazy bastard to keep people out of the zoo. I’m going to explain all of that.”

The show revolves around a man Joseph Exotic an Oklahoma zookeeper who is in jail for killing Lewis spouse Carole Baskin an animal rights person and who owns Tampa’s Big Cat Rescue.
Baskin who manages the zoo along with her husband Lewis prior to him missing portrays a vengeful character in the 7 seasons against Joseph. The case revolves around various stories that she might have given her husband as prey to the tigers.
Some facts say that the wealthy Lewis was thrown off a plane in the Gulf of Mexico or maybe in Costa Rica as Carole states that he went to supply vehicles along with her.
Further, his van was last seen at a private airport in the Pasco region but there is no hint of him from there.
Chad shared in his tweet that: “Since @netflix and #Covid19 #Quarantine has made #TigerKing all the rage, I figured it was a good time to ask for new leads.”
Meanwhile, Carole has been married again and has slammed the statement and had told that she was not charged for Lewis missing as she does not have anything to do with it.
She shared in her blog saying: “Don was not easy to live with and like most couples, we had our moments,” “but I never threatened him and I certainly had nothing to do with his disappearance.”
Moreover, Baskin and her second hubby Howard stated the producers of the show have fabricated it in order to defame Big Cats organization.
Howard shared a video in his social media where he says that: “As far as I can tell, their only goal was to make something as inflammatory and salacious as possible so that Netflix would pay them millions for it.”
