Tiger King's Joe Exotic Writes Kim Kardashian, Asks for Help Getting Presidential Pardon

Tiger King star Joe Exotic is asking Kim Kardashian for assistance in getting him out of prison.

If you don’t know, the star of the famed Netflix documentary was convicted in a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin.

“I know you have never met me and may never want to however I do believe that you hold the values of our justice system dear to your heart,” he wrote to Kim (via ET). “I am writing you this letter not as Joe Exotic but as the person Joseph Maldonado-Passage, asking you to please help me by just taking 10 minutes out of your life and placing a call to President Trump to look at my 257 page pardon it’s all the evidence I’m innocent and ask him to sign my pardon so I can return home to [my husband] Dillon [Passage] and my father.”

“I have lost 57 years of work, my zoo, my animals, my mother has died, my dad is dying and I’ve been taken away from my husband who I love dearly. Everyone is so busy making movies, getting interviews, selling stuff and dressing up like me that everyone forgot I’m a real live person in prison and kept from even telling my own story for something I didn’t do,” he added.

He then asked Kim to call him, saying, “No one even has to know you did it.”

If you don’t know, Kim is passionate about prison reform and she has met with Trump in the past on the topic.
