A man named Eric Love is trying to get Joe Exotic released from prison.
Joe Exotic is a name that just won't leave the news, apparently. Of course, Mr. Exotic became a huge star thanks to the infamous Tiger King documentary on Netflix which eventually became an international phenomenon. Exotic is currently in jail for putting a hit out on his rival, Carole Baskin but as it turns out, there are people who want to see him freed from jail.
In a recent video statement to TMZ, a private investigator by the name of Eric Love spoke about his plans to get the Tiger King out of jail. Essentially, Love is taking a tour bus to the White House where he wants to speak to President Donald Trump about giving Exotic a pardon. Love is adamant that Exotic is guilty and believes the President can make things right.
"Well, hey, greetings from Fort Worth, Texas," Love said. "Just letting you know we're leaving out Monday the 18th at 7 a.m. out of Forth Worth, Texas. We are heading to Washington D.C. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, son! This will be a case of redemption."
At this point, it remains to be seen if Love will even be granted a meeting with the President. A pardon is something you have to work very hard for and if you don't build a good enough case, it's just not going to happen.
