Stop the presses: Joe Exotic has been exposed to coronavirus.

According to a report from NBC DFW, Joe Exotic is in coronavirus quarantine in Fort Worth. Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka Joe Exotic, quickly became a household name last month with the debut of Netflix's documentary series, Tiger King.

In April 2019, Joe was found guilty of a murder-for-hire scheme to kill his arch nemesis, Carol Baskin. Joe was convicted and sentenced to 22 years in federal prison on January 20, 2020.

Joe's husband, Dylan Passage, has revealed that Joe is being held at a medical center in Fort Worth operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons because he was exposed to the coronavirus at a previous facility.

Joe is 57, and I hope in good health. I wouldn't want him going out anytime soon. Joe Exotic is pure entertainment, and the Tiger King docu-series could not have come out at a better time.

If you haven't watched the show yet, I definitely encourage you to watch it as soon as possible. Tiger King is exactly what the world needs right now to get through this pandemic.
