“Everyone, It is with a sad face that I have to tell you the doctors called me in today to break the news that my prostate biopsy came back with an aggressive cancer, I am still waiting on the results from other test as well,” Joe‘s team wrote on his behalf in a post shared to Instagram on Wednesday (November 3).

“Right now I don’t want anyone’s pity and I’m sure Carole Will have her own party over this! What I need is the world to be my voice to be released, they have the proof I DID NOT DO THIS!” Joe continued in his message. “And there is no reason for the district attorney to drag this out, So I can go home and get treatment on my own or enjoy what life I have left with my loved ones! Say a prayer everyone & be my voice 😢 love Joe Exotic.”

Tiger King will be returning to Netflix for a second season, which will debut on November 17.
