Tiger King star Joe Exotic once asked Marilyn Manson for an endorsement for his failed campaign to become the Governor of Oklahoma.

Exotic’s – real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage – unsuccessful 2018 campaign to be elected as the Oklahoma Governor is covered in the “bonkers” Netflix documentary.

But it is only now that we learn the controversial private prison owner reached out to Manson in a bid to gain support.

Manson received a Twitter message from Exotic on January 16, 2018 which read: “Hey, Thanks for the follow. I’m running for Governor of Oklahoma and trying to speak for the real people for a change and get some help for addiction in this State that no one cares about.

“Would you endorse me? Not asking for money. Just to use your name as an endorsement.”

Manson shared a screenshot of the DM and shared it on his Instagram yesterday (April 1) under the caption “Nope. Don’t F*** With Cats.”

According to his husband, Joe Exotic is currently in coronavirus isolation in prison after there were cases in the previous facility he was held in.

Earlier this week, Tiger King star John Finlay claimed that Michael Jackson once owned alligators that perished at a fire in Joe Exotic’s zoo back in 2015.
