Jared Leto shows his love for the Netflix series Tiger King by dressing up as Joe Exotic … while Cardi B admits she interrupted it for sex
He lives an extreme lifestyle with deadly climbing trips and technology-free desert retreats.
So it should come as no surprise that Jared Leto was drawn to the larger-than-life Joe Exotic, the subject of the new Tiger King docuseries on Netflix.
The 48-year-old actor and rocker paid tribute to the animal owner and the criminal by dressing up in Instagram Stories posts on Thursday, while fellow fan Cardi B complained that she lost the plot after quitting sex.

Jared shared his messages without any comment, although he picked up a stuffed lion to clarify who he is impersonating.
He placed a reflective gold shirt with a purple floral print accent, a wide-brimmed straw hat and red sweatpants.
The 10.4 million followers of the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman already knew he was intrigued by the show after announcing a virtual viewing on Instagram earlier on Thursday.
‘Wow. Blown again – end of episode one. Masterful guidance and great work for everyone involved in the production !!! he gushed afterward.

Sharing Love: Jared was so into the documentary that he hosted a virtual viewing party with his fans
Although a fan of the seven-part documentary, Jared also clarified his stance on exotic cats.
“For the record, no one should keep these animals in such cages. Not OK. We need to protect exotic / endangered animals and their wild habitats, ”he tweeted, while also tagging the World Wildlife Foundation.
Tiger King follows the bizarre life of Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic, who operated Oklahoma’s Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park.

Shocking Turn: Maldonado-Passage strayed from the law after hiring someone to kill the big cat rescuer Carole Baskin. He was sentenced in January and sentenced to 22 years
Joe Exotic was not to be missed with his dyed blonde mullet and gaudy attire when he bred big cats and grew up in his zoo.
But his passion for exotic animals disappeared from the law, and Maldonado-Passage became entangled in a feud with animal rights activist Carole Baskin, who ran a large tiger reserve.
He was arrested in late 2018 and convicted the following year of attempting to hire someone to kill Baskin, as well as multiple animal cruelty and violations of the Endangered Species Act.
He was sentenced to 22 years in prison in January.
Distracting Viewing: Cardi was also interested in the show, although she lost the thread after intimately quitting her husband Offset for a while
Locked up: She watched the show to pass the time while isolating herself. The day before, she cried in a video for staying and eating grains instead of going out for sushi
Cardi B also seemed to be a fan of the series, although she struggled to concentrate.
“What do you think of TigerKing?” she tweeted Thursday evening.
“I’m in the second episode and I’m a little lost because I started fucking.”
Cardi tried to keep herself busy while isolating herself amid the coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday, she shared a video crying because she was forced to stay indoors and eat cereal instead of eating sushi the way she wanted.
