Joe Exotic feels as though his health is deteriorating in jail and he wants out immediately.
Joe Exotic became incredibly famous following the Tiger King documentary which was broadcasted on Netflix at the start of the pandemic lockdown. It's been almost three months since the world became aware of Exotic and he is still on many people's minds. As it stands, Exotic is in jail for putting a hit out on his archnemesis Carole Baskin although he still maintains his innocence.
Now, Exotic is reaching out to his fans and he seems to be in despair. Throughout the new letter obtained by TMZ, Exotic says phrases like "my soul is dead" and "I'll be dead in 2-3 months." Exotic notes that since the pandemic is dying out, President Trump should have him exonerated and removed from the jail.

The Tiger King star also claims that the prison isn't allowing him to take the meds he needs for his health problems and it's making him feel sick. Exotic went so far as to say that he feels like he is on death row right now and that he needs support more than ever. To make matters worse, Exotic is being fed information about his husband Dillon Passage, who has reportedly ghosted him.
Needless to say, the situation is dire for Exotic and he seems to be desperate to get out. There is currently a legal team working on a campaign to get a Presidential pardon for Exotic, although it remains to be seen if that goes anywhere.
