UGK’s Bun B might not be binging “Tiger King” this week. The hip-hop star has reacted to cringe footage of show star Joe Exotic going on a rant about not being able to use the N-word.
On Tuesday, Bun hit up Instagram and didn’t hold back keeping it 100. B explained why he the N-word rant is a non-discussion.
“No Joe. You’re pathetic. Later for this clown.”
According to reports, the footage is a few years old. In the clip, Joe is walking around questioning why hip-hop artists get a pass for using the N-word.
Some old footage from 2015 resurfaced showing the “Tiger King” star complaining … “What’s going on in this country? It’s absolutely pathetic. I can’t say the n-word but you can get on YouTube and watch any black man’s video and they’re calling each other the n-word. What the hell?” Joe went on to theorize, “Is this discrimination? I’m white, I can’t say the n-word and they can?” The footage appears to be from his old online reality series “Joe Exotic TV” but it’s only now hitting the fan … due to the popularity of the Netflix documentary.

Before You Go
Joe Exotic has made a name for himself since Netflix released his “Tiger King” series. The seven-episode show ultimately reveals how he landed behind bars.
Given all that was revealed in Tiger King, you may be wondering what exactly Joe Exotic was ultimately charged with. In the end, he was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder-for-hire, eight counts of falsifying wildlife records, and nine counts of violation of the Endangered Species Act. As you can probably guess, Joe Exotic doesn’t think his prison sentence will last very long. He claims that “perjury took place and was ignored by all parties involved” in the lead-up to his arrest. Thus far, his claims have not amounted to much — he’s still in prison and will be for the foreseeable future. (Distractify)
