Tiger King star Joe Exotic is behind bars and unable to enjoy his newfound Netflix fame.
Even still, Netflix caught up with Joe from prison and he gave fans an update.
“When I walk out of here, am I going to be as crazy as I was before? That will never change,” he told Netflix from prison on March 22. “You know it would be nice if I could actually see me being famous out there, but I’ve seen these same four walls for a year and a half now.”
He expressed his appreciation for his husband Dillon Passage, who has stuck by him during his legal troubles, but he also made it clear he has some regrets.
“Go sit in a cage with your animals for a week,” Exotic replied when asked what he wanted Tiger King fans to know. “I mean, when I left the zoo and I sent my chimpanzees to the sanctuary in Florida and imagined what my chimpanzees went through for 18 years, I’m ashamed of myself.”
His most interesting comments came when he was asked what message he would send to those who have seen the show, however. “I’m done with the Carole Baskin saga,” he said. “It’s now time to turn the tables and Joe get out of jail, a free man and exonerated from all these charges.”
