Joe Exotic claims that he is receiving substandard medical care for prostate cancer while in jail.

Tiger King star Joe Exotic has hit out at the medical treatment he is receiving for prostate cancer while in jail.

The 58-year-old is a couple of years into a 22-year sentence for a plot to kill rival Carole Baskin, although a recent ruling in his favour could see the sentence reduced by a few years.

Earlier this year he revealed that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and now in a new interview with The Sun, he has claimed that his prison doctors are "rude and don't give a shit".

"This is crazy how they put people in here and just let you die," he told the newspaper.

"The things that I've seen and the dead people I've seen wheeled out of here is outrageous and it's time that our president and our politicians hear the truth."

Exotic has previously alleged that he has been "sexually assaulted" and "tied up" by jail staff.
