This year has been anything but normal. Joe Exotic, from the ultra-popular Netflix documentary Tiger King is currently serving 22 years in prison for 17 animal abuse offenses as well as two charges of murder attempts on Carole Baskin. He has reached out to Kim Kardashian in a letter, hoping she will help him obtain a presidential pardon.
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,
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.
Wow, there is a lot going on here! What do you think – should Kim try to help Joe? Kim has not responded to this letter – but earlier in 2020, she talked about how she was obsessed with Tiger King. I guess we will have to wait and see how this unfolds! Kim did dress up with her family as Tiger King members for Halloween, so maybe it’s in the cards? Check out the video below!
