*OJ Simpson is the latest celebrity to weigh in on Netflix’s insanely popular “Tiger King” series.
The sordid tale of racist Oklahoma exotic zookeeper “Joe Exotic” is explored in the seven-part series, which also deep dives into a murder-for-hire plot against his longtime rival, Carole Baskin.
Joe Exotic is now serving a 22-year sentence related to that crime, and also multiple wildlife violations. The series, however, reportedly glosses over all the animals that were abused in his care. The filmmakers also opted not to shine the spotlight on Joe’s racism, with director Rebecca Chaiklin saying the racist angle “didn’t have a context in the story,” adding that he has a lot to learn. “I think most of it was ignorance and not having a lot of exposure and I think he even evolved over the course of the time that we filmed,” she explained.
On Wednesday, Simpson took to Twitter to share his belief that there is “not a shred of doubt” in his mind that Carole killed her husband.

The former NFL star tweeted a video from his home in Las Vegas after returning from a round of golf.
“Hey, Twitter world, it’s yours truly, I just got back from the golf course…where I actually played pretty well. Now it’s back at home, back on the couch…back to television. Listen, so many people on my case asking me to watch some show called ‘Tiger King,” he begins.
Adding, “Well, yesterday I watched this show…and oh my god is America in this bad of shape. I watched about six episodes of this show and I couldn’t believe what I was looking at — White people! What’s with you and wild animals…leave those animals alone.”
He then noted, “One thing I will say, there’s not a shred of doubt in my mind…that…that’s ladies husband is um…Tiger Shashimi right now…I’m just sayin'” he said.
Joe pushes the theory in the doc that Carole killed her husband, Don Lewis (who went missing in August 1997) and fed his body to her tigers.
Baskin has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the case and denies having anything to do with his possible death. She has also since remarried
Simpson ends his speech with, “Take care, and I hope you find something better to watch.
According to Complex, after the documentary’s release, authorities in Hillsborough County, Florida, decided to look into new leads to figure out what happened to Lewis.
