Netflix’s brand-new documentary series
If you haven’t watched it, it’s essentially a docuseries about homosexual zoo owner named Joe Exotic who is the one-time owner of a successful-seeming private zoo with over 200 tigers and other big cats.
There’s also some murder and absolutely insane madness thrown in for good measure.

Kyle prompted Finlay to say more, but he didn’t.

Finlay said: “I couldn’t really understand the question”.
The entire interview continued in a similar fashion. Eventually, Kyle asked the question no doubt everyone else was thinking: “You’re not on meth anymore are you, John?”
“I have given up the meth, six years clean,” he said,
