Mike Tyson Channels Joe Exotic With “Tiger King” Throwback


Mike Tyson is making sure to remind people who did it first.

Tiger King has taken the world by storm in this time of need. For those who have been living under a rock, Tiger King is a documentary centered around Joe Exotic who has his very own zoo in Oklahoma. Exotic is known for having a whole bunch of tigers, as well as an arch-nemesis by the name of Carole Baskin. Things didn’t exactly end too well for Exotic but he has certainly left his mark on the entire world. At this point, Joe is a legend of the internet and will never live down the legacy he put forward.

Mike Tyson is clearly a fan of the documentary because today, he took to his Instagram account with his very own tiger photo. Of course, Tyson had his own tigers back in the day and used to pose with them. In this throwback snapshot, Tyson is reclaiming his throne as the rightful Tiger King.

Tyson and Exotic are both pretty eccentric personalities so their shared love of tigers shouldn’t be all that surprising. Tyson is an animal lover in general and even has quite the array of pigeons. Perhaps, for now, Tyson can take his rightful place as the pigeon king. Considering Exotic’s fall from grace, you have to leave him with something to hang on to.
