Since it’s release, Tiger King has captivated the world and people cannot stop talking about it

As we have already seen that Tiger King is not a straightforward show about big cat owners. It has many layers to it, and if you look closely, there are many hidden secrets and shady characters. Although people have sympathized with Joe Exotic, there have been many instances on the show where he appeared insensitive and cruel. One such incident was when Kelci Saffery lost his arm on Joe’s property and he seemed more worried about his financial losses. Similarly, he seemed to be taking the center stage at Travis’ funeral which was also noticed by Travis’ mother. Later, Erik Cowie admitted that Joe Exotic was cruel to the animals. However, Joe Exotic’s racist side has not been revealed on the show.

According to Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, Joe Exotic’s racist side did not make it on our TV screens

Recently, a video clip of Joe Exotic was circulating on the internet where he is ranting about not being able to use the N-word. This is the first instance where Joe Exotic’s racist side has come out.

Now the makers of the show had admitted to the fact that he is indeed a racist. While talking about it, Rebecca Chaiklin said:

“Yes. Joe is a racist, I would say categorically. He said things when we were filming that were very unsettling. They didn’t have a context in the story, but he has a lot to learn. I think most of it was ignorance and not having a lot of exposure, and I think he even evolved over the course of the time that we filmed.”

On the other hand, Eric Goode said:

“We had empathy for Joe, but Joe did a lot of horrible things. Joe committed some really serious crimes and Joe was not only cruel and inhumane to his animals, he was cruel to the people around him. I think it’s very important for people to understand that Joe is an actor and he tells people what they want to hear.”

While this side of his personality has been revealed for the first time, it would be expected from someone like him.
