I am not saying that Shaquille O'Neal is not telling the truth about NOT being friends with Joe Exotic. I am saying he was on an episode of Joe's TV show in 2014 (watch above).

Spoiler alert - not only did Shaq appear on 'Joe Exotic TV', he is also in an episode of the Netflix mega hit documentary 'Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness '. If you are not familiar, the documentary is about Joe Exotic and his zoo (plus so much more). Nonetheless, Shaq is making it clear that he is not friends with Joe, and that he just loves white tigers. You can hear his comments in the video below.

It was reported in 2005 that Shaquille O'Neal bought two rare white tigers. According to the New York Post, at that time, the tigers lived in Jacksonville, Florida, and were being looked after by a man named 'Tiger Dave'. I am not sure if that is still the case, since that was 15 years ago.
