Tiger King fans have come out against the host of the latest episode of the Netflix docuseries, Joel McHale and claimed he’s “ruined” the show.
A new episode of Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Mystery was released on Netflix this week.
When it was first announced (by Jeff Lowe himself of all people), fans of the show got very excited.
They were hoping for a new episode of the docuseries, but what they ended up getting what a sort of after-show hosted by Community’s Joel McHale.
Turns out people didn’t care much for Joel McHale’s style and claimed that he’s “ruined” the show.
These fans of Tiger King then turned to Twitter to voice their annoyance with the actor.

Not even bothering with that extra episode of Tiger King. It's just Joel McHale desperately needing to insert himself into a trending conversation to stay relevant. pic.twitter.com/g5KLawEBb3

Why the fuck is Joel Mchale doing these interviews?? His questions are trash. His jokes are even worse. This had potential, but he SUCKS 😒

It really does seem as though a big section of Tiger King’s viewership really didn’t enjoy Joel McHale’s episode of the show.
It was a bit strange, and very much is an after-show episode in which McHale interviews some people involved in the Tiger King story.
With us all being in lockdown at the moment, the episode was mostly filmed via people’s webcams.
I’m going to be honest here, it’s really not what I wanted from another episode of the show.
However, the minute I learnt that it was being hosted by Joel McHale, I knew what to expect.
