People who have already watched binged the docuseries know that Joe Exotic is a larger-than-life character who capitalized in every way on his business, including selling Joe Exotic-branded products at the zoos gift shop and online at ShopTigerKing.com (now defunct). This merchandise included everything from underwear and condoms to skin care, T-shirts, and lubeall products Joe proudly shows off to the producers of Tiger King in the docuseries.
Unfortunately, for fans of the docuseries, Joe Exotic's underwear line is no longer available for purchase. The website is archived, and no useable pictures of the undewear currently exist, according to Oxygen . However, the publication was still able to unearth the description of one pair: "The cool look of black snakeskin using soft and stretchy nylon/spandex topped with a comfortable elastic waist. Show off your inner snake with these snakeskin patterned mini-shorts. The light weight [sic] nylon spandex fabric stretches to conform to your every curve."
Now, the G.W. Zoo has new owners, Jeff and Lauren Lowe, and they're apparently trying to sell some new merch. And some people are calling them out for it on the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park Facebook page. On March 25, the Facebook page posted a photo of what appeared to be Joe Exotic's shirts, with a caption about selling themessentially trolling the former zookeeper.
"Who wants to own a personally owned Joe Exotic shirt?! Get them while there are limit supplies #tigerkingnetflix #tigerking #netflix," the post said.
And Facebook fans of the page weren't blind to the shade.
"Wait, so you sent him to prison and now you're trying to make $ selling his style??" one person commented.
To which the account responded, "We didn't send him to prison. The government did. And this helps the animals that he abandoned."
So... maybe they are serious? Only time will tell.
