Joe Exotic, who currently in prison wrote a letter to Kim Kardashian West. The 57-year-old Tiger King star sent a handwritten letter to the 40-year-old reality TV star criminal justice reform activist asking for a presidential pardon from President Donald Trump.
Joe is serving a prison sentence of 22 years after being convicted for plotting a murder-for-hire. The murder was designed for Carole Baskin, who is a Big Cat Rescue owner along with other charges. In the handwritten letter, Joe mentioned that he has never met Kardashian in person.
“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,” Joe writes in the letter dated Nov. 4. “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 pages 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.”
He added, “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.”
Moreover, Joe asked Kardashian to call him and made a promise that no one will know about it. “Wow, the amount of texts I’ve gotten about Tiger King since I tweeted about it all have mentioned their belief that Carol killed her husband! What are your thoughts? Do you think Carol killed him?” Kardashian tweeted in March.
