If you’ve retained internet access during this time of social distancing, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about a little Netflix docuseries called Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. At first glance, it looks like a documentary about zoo workers and some tigers, but it’s so, so much more. Without giving anything away, the docuseries centers on someone named Joe Exotic, who Netflix calls “a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and a country-western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo.” (Well, that’s a lot to unpack.) Things take an even more unexpected turn when Carole Baskin, Joe’s arch nemesis, threatens to run them out of business and sets a—wait for it—murder mystery into motion. You really can’t make this stuff up.

And, as you might imagine, people have a lot of feelings about the popular docuseries. Here, our 20 favorite Tweets about Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.
