Joe Exotic wants President Biden to pardon him

You all still remember Joe Exotic, right, as in Tiger King? The show and star that mesmerized us all during the early days of lockdown last March, and kept us distracted from reality for the duration of its episodes.


Joe Exotic, once a proud Trump supporter, changed course for his support when the ex-president excluded him from his list of pardons. Now, the former zoo operator is hoping to find an ally in the new president in order to grant him a pardon. TMZ released emails that Exotic sent to President Joe Biden from prison. He expressed more confidence in the Biden administration regarding prison reform, and believes that VP Kamala Harris can “help clean up the corruption in the DOJ and other agencies.”


We have a very strong belief that not being granted a pardon may have forced Exotic to switch sides and warm up to the new administration. He even took to Twitter to bash Trump for not pardoning him saying: “I was too innocent and too GAY to deserve a Pardon from Trump. I only mattered to Don Jr. when he needed to make a comment about me to boost his social media post,” Joe wrote.


What Joe may not understand is that the Biden administration currently has a lot on its plate, like say, ending the pandemic, or at least slowing it down, so this pardon may not be anywhere near the beginning of that list.
