Here’s a story in honor of “Spirit Week”, and more specifically “Tiger King Tuesday”…….
MIRANDA LAMBERT is taking heat for photos she shared yesterday of herself and that “Tiger King” guy JOE EXOTIC. The pics were taken in 2017 after Hurricane Harvey tore through Texas and Louisiana.
She was in Houston with Mutt Nation rescuing dogs, and she put out a call for volunteers. She needed help transporting shelter dogs to Oklahoma, and Joe “came to the rescue” by bringing his trailer.
But she didn’t say any of that in the caption. All she wrote was, “Here’s a little Monday memory for y’all. #TigerKing. #WayTooPrettyForPrison.” (Joe is serving 22 years for animal abuse and trying to have a rival killed.)
Well, the Internet had a few things to say. Stuff like, “That’s not a pic I would be proud of let alone post on social media. Very disappointed.” And “Surprised you would post this considering [your] love of animals. Odd.”
Miranda had to do another post where she explained the whole Hurricane Harvey backstory. She ended it with, “I’ve never been to his zoo and I didn’t even know he had tigers. Obviously, I’d never condone animals being treated badly.”
