Shaq continues to be at the center of controversy.
Shaquille O’Neal shows up just 30 minutes into the first episode of the Netflix doc Tiger King.
O’Neal is shown walking around Exotic’s G.W. Zoo and holding tiger cubs.

Shaq has denied he has any relationship with Joe Exotic, but according to the Zoo’s facebook Page, Shaq reached out to current owner Jeff Lowe.
