If you've seen the Netflix docuseries, "Tiger King" then you've seen a couple scenes where Shaquille O'Neal visited his zoo and even gave Joe Exotic a plug on "Inside the NBA." After some critics roasted him for it, hSe addressed the situation on "The Big Podcast with Shaq"...

--he had NO IDEA things were as bad as they were at the zoo.

"I was just a visitor. I met this guy. Not my friend. Don’t know him. Never had any business dealings with him, and I had no idea any of that stuff was going on," Shaq said.

The NBA legend admits he made donations to the zoo -- claiming he does stuff like that all the time -- but would never support the mistreatment of animals.

"People that know me know that I'm righteous. I don't harm tigers. I lover tigers."

"We found out that he’s involved with all the stuff, and then, actually, I stopped going.”

Shaq says he really likes the show -- he's binged watched it -- saying, "It's actually a really good documentary."
