Since the full line debuted on Wednesday, 7,000 T-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, and face masks have been sold online, Odain Watson, the owner of clothing brand Odaingerous, who partnered with Exotic to make him the face of the new line, he told the gossip site.
The merchandise is tagged with the words “Revenge … Love your traitor … and $ UCCESS”, along with pictures of Bengal tigers.
The phrases are a nod to the wild feud between Baskin and Exotic, narrated by Netflix on the hit show, which ended in Exotic’s conviction of planning to kill Baskin.
The show also sparked conspiracies about the death of Baskin’s former husband.
Exotic claimed on the show that she fed him with the tigers, and a crowd of fans believes him, hence the “Revenge” message.
