Watch the new trailer for ‘Tiger King 2’ set to debut on Netflix this November

The official trailer for Tiger King 2 has just been released. A synopsis from Netflix reads- “With Joe Exotic behind bars and Carole Baskin closing in on ownership of his disreputable zoo, the Emmy-nominated saga continues its twisted course with “Tiger King 2” as newfound revelations emerge on the motivations, backstories, and secrets of America’s most notorious big cat owners. Old enemies and frenemies, including Jeff Lowe, Tim Stark, Allen Glover, and James Garretson return for another season of murder, mayhem, and madness. Thought you knew the whole story? Just you wait.”

Tiger King 2 will pick right where the original series left off.  Joe Exotic’s ‘Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park’ has closed down and Exotic was sentenced to 22 years in a Texas prison for orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot to kill Carole Baskin, an animal rights activist. Exotic, 58, says in the 2 minute clip in a phone call from jail:  “There’s an innocent man in prison. Everybody from the zoo is out there making money, and I’m paying the price for every one of them people. If you give a damn, it’s time to speak up.” Season 2 will also look into Baskin’s own mysterious background involving her former husband, Don Lewis. He vanished in 1997 and was declared legally dead in 2002. Fans have long speculated that the 60-year-old had something to with his demise.

The five-episode Tiger King 2 premieres on Nov. 17.  Watch the new trailer here:

Fred Durst teases artwork and October 31st release date for new Limp Bizkit LP

Fred Durst is teasing some of the artwork for Limp Bizkit’s long-awaited new album, hinting that it could drop on October 31st – Halloween. Durst polled fans on social media about the new album last week, implying that songs from the long-awaited LP were finally finished.  He asked:  “Should I drop a new song?  Maybe ‘Turn It Up, B*tch’ or ‘Goodbye’? Hmm, or should I just drop the whole new album, all 12 songs? What do you think?”  Last weekend, Durst shared an Instagram story of “Album Cover Piece 1” with the text: “Instead, all [jack-o-lantern emoji]’s will drop on Halloween.”  Durst and the band also shared a second piece of the artwork featuring a colorful UFO, implying the band is set to release something this Halloween.

Limp Bizkit returned to live performing earlier this year when Durst appeared at Lollapalooza sporting his new “Dad Vibes” look; the band subsequently released the official “Dad Vibes” single at the end of September. Limp Bizkit have been working on the follow-up to 2011’s Gold Cobra for years under the working title of Stampede of the Disco Elephants; however, there’s no word on whether that album name will remain. According to guitarist Wes Borland, the band has “probably, in the last 10 years, been in the studio to try and complete the record, I wanna say, seven times.”

Dave Chappelle addresses the ongoing controversy surrounding his Netflix special “The Closer”

Dave Chappelle has addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding his latest Netflix special, The Closer, where the veteran comedian makes several jokes about transgendered people.  Chappelle’s comments have been met with immense criticism; last week members of Netflix’s LGBTQ+ community staged a walkout in protest of Netflix’s decision to stand behind the comedian.

Now Chappelle is speaking out on the controversy, uploading a video of his remarks to Instagram from the end of his standup show in Nashville. Chappelle began by disputing the claim that he declined an invitation to speak with LGBTQ+ staffers at Netflix, saying, “If they had invited me, I would have accepted it. Although I am confused about what we’re speaking about. I said what I said and boy, I heard what you said. My god, how could I not? You said you want a safe working environment at Netflix. Well, it seems like I’m the only one who can’t go to the office anymore.”

Chappelle also said he is willing to meet with the transgender community – “But you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands. If you want to meet with me, I’d be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you can not come if you haven’t watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing and at a time of my choosing. And thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.” (Gadsby, an Australian comedian, recently spoke out against Netflix and Chappelle.)  Chappelle added that the controversy has impacted the distribution of his upcoming documentary: “Because of this controversy, not a film company, not a movie studio, not a film festival — nobody will touch this film. Thank god for Ted [Sarandos] and Netflix, he’s the only one who hasn’t canceled me yet.”
