Joe Exotic's Wedding Video Is Just As Bizarre As You'd Expect

A monkey catches the bridal bouquet!

Netflix's scandalous new docu-series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is the trainwreck of a show no one can stop talking about, and the story only gets more and more ridiculous with time. 

In case you haven't watched just yet, Joe Exotic was the owner of a private zoo that let the public interact with his collection of "Big Cats." Last year, Exotic went to jail for a plan to hire someone to murder his archnemesis, animal rights activist Carole Baskin, along with 17 wildlife violations. He's served less than a year of his twenty-two, and just last week he filed a federal lawsuit seeking $94 million for antigay discrimination from the state. 

Exotic is currently in quarantine in jail after being exposed to coronavirus.

The drama of it all!

While all this is going on, and his fourth husband is spilling the tea on their sex life to Andy Cohen, Exotic's 2014 wedding video to John Finlay and Travis Maldonado has resurfaced online—and it is just as insane as everything else in this wacky story. 

"In our society today, no wedding is really normal," the wedding officiant begins. "But even by modern standards...this is an unusual wedding."

In the 23-minute video, we watch as the ceremony space is set up with various cat patterns, Exotic picks up the matching pink wedding outfits from a boot store, a capuchin monkey catches the bridal bouquet, guests interacting with live big cats (of course), and more wedding antics.

Surprisingly, the ceremony is a bit more touching than you might think. While Exotic's coworkers in the documentary insist John Finlay and Travis Maldonado were actually straight the whole time, they both seemed to really care for Exotic and their moments in the video feel earnest. Bisexuality does exist, y'all!
