Joe Exotic Is Trying to Sue One of College Football's Biggest Stars

Joe Exotic isn't thrilled that Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis is trying to use his nickname on merchandise.

Joe Exotic, also known as Tiger King and popularized after the hit Netflix television show, has taken to X to make it known he's trying to sue Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis.

This stems from Travis and his marketing team selling a "JORDAN TRAVIS COLLEGE KING 2.0 WHT" t-shirt for $31.24 after the Seminoles' win over the Clemson Tigers on the road.

"Jordan Travis was 6 years old when I became The Tiger King, it is my trademark, my intellectual property and I'm sick of others cashing in on my Trademark just because President Biden cares nothing about me being wrongfully in prison in America," Exotic, who's currently incarcerated, started.

"I will give ANY ATTORNEY 80% of a settlement to sue Jordan Travis and ALL companies selling stuff using Tiger King. Time quarterbacks and anyone else in this country stops stealing from others, which attorney would like to take this multimillion dollar case? DM me! President Trump, you see the shit your swamp did to my life with the corrupt DOJ you ran? The evidence is there they all admit to perjury and a plot to kill me and they all walk free. Biden should make this right and gain support and FREE JOE EXOTIC. Until Jordan Travis walks in a cage with 20 full grown tigers and kisses them on the head, leave the Tiger King business to me," Exotic finished.

Whether Joe Exotic, whose legal name is Joseph Maldonado, owns the trademark or not, Travis is the latest quarterback to get slammed by the 60-year-old, who also took to X to ask Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow for money for legal help after he claims Burrow used his trademark, too.

As mentioned, the Seminoles defeated the Tigers 31-24 in overtime after the Seminoles returned a Cade Klubnik fumble for a touchdown and the Clemson kicker, Jonathan Weitz, missed a go-ahead field with less than two minutes to go in the game.

Travis finished with 289 passing yards, two touchdowns, and a rushing touchdown in the win. The Seminoles improved to 4-0, while the Tigers dropped to 2-2 after this loss and one in Week 1 on the road against the Duke Blue Devils.

The Seminoles have a bye week in Week 5 but will return home for their October 7 showdown against Virginia Tech.
