It has been over a year since Joe Exotic became a viral sensation and well-known name after Nextflix’s “Tiger King’ blew up during the pandemic. The Tiger King star is still in prison at this moment. Now it seems Joe Exotic made a huge claim.
Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence for wildlife crimes and for plotting to kill animal rights activist and animal sanctuary owner Carole Baskin. Tiger King season 2 simply took place after the chaotic aftermath of the first season.
According to The Daily Beast, Exotic has used his new memoir to blast former POTUS Donald Trump for granting him a pardon. Exotic really hoped Trump would have helped him out before he left office in 2020.
When he got diagnosed with cancer, that was a point of persuasion that Exotic used in order to get a pardon. However, Trump left the office and Exotic never got the pardon. Exotic then claimed that Trump would’ve given him a pardon had he given a lot of money.
Word has it I should have written a big check and I would have gotten that pardon, too.
Joe Exotic has been transferred from FMC Fort Worth to FMC Butner in North Carolina as he previously said he would refuse cancer treatment and was ready to die. Joe Exotic is going through a hard time and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
