'Tiger King' Takeover: Cardi B, Sam Smith, 2 Chainz and Jared Leto Are As Obsessed As You Are

The Netflix series has transfixed the locked-down nation.

The masses have crowned Netflix's Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness the ruler of the Quarantine Nation, and Cardi B, 2 Chainz, Sam Smith, Jared Leto and other celebs are pledging fealty on their socials.

The show, which has everything from gay throuples to trainers getting their arms ripped off, dumpsters full of expired meat, murder, dynamite, teenage magicians, sex cults and the Tony Montana of zookeepers, is the ultimate guilty pleasure during the days and weeks of this national shutdown over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Once you dip into the bizarre world of Joe Exotic and his menagerie of wild animals you just can't stop. And it's not just you. From the moment the series hit Netflix it has generated Avengers-level buzz. Heck, Leto held a viewing party on online Thursday night (March 26) and live tweeted it. He doubled down during this party by raving about Joe Exotic's country anthem "I Saw a Tiger," asking Finneas if they should cover it.

Check out some of our favorite raves from musicians and celebs who are filling their now-empty schedules with hours of quality time with Mario Tabraue, the mystical Bhagavan "Doc" Antle, Big Cat rescuer Carole Baskin and magical teen J.P. Wilson.
