Joe Exotic became known all over the world with the documentary Tiger King, released by Netflix in 2020. Joe Exotic, now in prison, made headlines last year for getting Donald Trump’s attention and pardon. Unfortunately for him, he still suffers from prostate cancer and things don’t seem to be getting any better.
According to The Sun, Joe Exotic says his prostate cancer has now spread throughout his body. In May, the Tiger King star announced that he was diagnosed with cancer and sought to use that diagnosis to seek a pardon from President Biden. He has not received any treatment since then.
Joe Exotic’s attorney, John M. Phillips, told TMZ that doctors are now checking to confirm whether cancer has spread. It was supposed to be checked out on Monday but the appointment was canceled.
Exotic is waiting for him to make an official diagnosis of whether cancer has actually spread. However, he said that he would refuse any treatment, even if the cancer was in stage 3 or 4.
Here’s what Joe Exotic reportedly said:
“Let it take me and I’m ready to die.”
