Netflix’s new seven-part docu-series, Tiger King, just dropped and the weird and wacky (true!) story is sending social media into meltdown.

It follows the lives of several large cat owners across the US – including the “Tiger King” himself, Joe Exotic – as well as animal rights activist and owner of Big Cat Rescue, Carole Baskin.

Without giving too much away, it features animal conservation, drugs, polygamy, murder plots and cult leaders.

Understandably, people on Twitter have a lot of thoughts about it all:

If nothing else, it's at least offering a welcome distraction.

It seems the characters are not that likeable to many.

It inspired many conflicting feelings.

People are very much here for the utterly bizarre nature of the story.


Netflix dropped the entire series of Tiger King worldwide on Friday 20 March, so what are you waiting for.
