“Tiger King’s Joe Exotic wants Kim Kardashian to ask Donald Trump for a pardon.
It looks like reality stars really like to work together. On November 4, Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joe Maldonado-Passage, wrote a letter to Kardashian West asking her to call Donald Trump and see if he can get a pardon. Maldonado-Passage is currently serving a 22-year-sentence in prison for allegedly hiring a hitman to murder his rival, Big Cat rescue owner Carole Baskin.
In the letter, Maldonado-Passage wrote, “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 wrote in the letter.” It continued, “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.”
He went on to say that he’s “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,” said Maldonado-Passage urging for the reality star to call him. “No one even has to know you did it.”
Kardashian West is definitely familiar with Maldonado-Passage, as she tweeted about “Tiger King” when released earlier this year. “Has anyone seen Tiger King on Netflix?!?! It is crazy!!!!”
Y’all think she read his letter?
