Tiger King star Joe Exotic is backing the Daily Star’s campaign for the return of the mullet in 2021.
The “gay, gun-carrying redneck with a mullet” gave his blessing to the Star’s push to make the distinctive 90s style the hottest new look.
Reality star Exotic – who is serving 22 years in US jail over wildlife crimes and plotting to kill his rival, activist Carole Baskin – helped make the trailer trash-look massive this year.
The 57-year-old zookeeper’s bleached mullet reflected his wild behaviour.
Now his endorsement of our campaign adds to that of Pat Sharp and Chris Waddle with other stars like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna leading a resurgence.

Eric Love, leader of Team Tiger – a group of lawyers and investigators working to get Joe freed – revealed Joe’s first priority if he gets released next year will be to perfect the bonkers barnet.
He said: “When Joe Exotic is released from prison, we have a hairdresser who has a go-bag ready.
“That is the first piece of work as soon as the release is given.
“The hair will be befitting of the king.”
Eric also urged Star readers to get an Exotic mullet, saying: “It’s only befitting of the king to have his hair duplicated.
“I think not only will he be flattered, but I think anytime someone imitates you, pays homage to you, that’s a great way to do it – duplicate the hair.
“I think he would be flattered. I think he would love it.”
Eric added that Exotic is confident of a pardon from Donald Trump in the next month.
