Joe Exotic Fails to Receive Presidential Pardon Despite Having Limo, Makeup Team on Standby
To say that 2020 has been a hectic year would be a little bit of an understatement. It just seems as if crazy event after the crazy event was bestowed upon us as we were left to do our best to handle the world as we now know it.
In fact, the world has gotten so crazy that even some of the more obscure events have kind of faded into the depths of our memory. It’s quite easy to forget that the world was obsessed over an outrageously boisterous tiger park owned by the name of “Joe Exotic” toward the beginning of the pandemic.
For those wondering what happened to the subject of Tiger King, as fate would have it, Exotic, who’s real name is Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, would end up behind bars after the airing of his Netflix series in March, right after Americans were first exposed to the concept of quarantine. In fact, Tiger King might have even been the first piece of viral media that was out there when we were all stuck at home.
However, as the story goes, Joe would allegedly get a little bit too combative with his arch-nemesis, Carole Baskins. For those who need a little freshening up, she’s the lady that a big chunk of viewers believes fed her husband to her own tigers.
Back on track, Joe Exotic ended up in jail after being convicted of hiring somebody to kill Baskins.
As history has told us, as a president is getting ready to leave office, they will begin to make their pardons. Exotic had planned to be atop the list of President Trump for being pardoned from his sentence.
His team would even have a limousine on the ready and a makeup team ready for Exotic to make his reemergence into the real world. However, when push came to shove and President Trump had eventually made his way out of office, Maldonado-Passage would fail to be pardoned. From the account that would appear to be the official Joe Exotic PR team, a message was relayed that Exotic believed he was “Too gay to deserve a pardon from Trump.”
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. Boy were we all stupid to believe he actually stood for Equal Justice? His corrupt friends all come first. pic.twitter.com/ysGfwnqlHi

It isn’t exactly clear if we will ever hear from Tiger King again as a free man. As of now, his release date is scheduled for January 22, 2041. That would make the entertainer nearly 80 years old at the time of his scheduled release.
Among those successfully pardoned in the celebrity world were Dwayne Carter Jr. aka “Lil Wayne” and Rapper, Bill Kahan Kapri, better known as “Kodak Black.”
Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done. 🤙🏾 pic.twitter.com/Q9c5k1yMWf
