Life, Imitating Art, Imitating Reality TV? The Tiger King Pleads With Kim Kardashian, Who Dressed As Carole Baskin For Halloween, To Help Spring Him From Prison.

Hey, all you cool cats and kittens … have we got a story for you.

Remember Joe Exotic, the misguided, mulleted star of Netflix’s “Tiger King?” Well, he wants out of prison and is hoping Kim Kardashian West will help spring him from his cage.

He wrote a letter to Kim K. asking if she could talk to the “Big Cat” (in this case, we are referring to Donald Trump) in hopes he could get a presidential pardon before Trump is released back into the wild.

The hopeful penpal to Kardashian West indicated that no one needed to know, but somehow the letter leaked to “Entertainment Tonight,” who posted every handwritten word of it.

“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.

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.” 

One thing Kardashian West has done, in addition to getting several prisoners pardoned, is shown she’s a big “Tiger King” fan. On Halloween, the mother of four and her friend, Jonathan Cheban, dressed up as Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic with her kids as tigers.

Joe is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence after being convicted of plotting a murder-for-hire against Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin, among other charges.
