Joe Exotic Has Called On Cardi B To Help Him Get Out Of Prison

Joe Exotic Has Called On Cardi B To Help Him Get Out Of Prison

The convicted felon said the rapper needs to be his 'voice of freedom'.

Joe Exotic has called on an unlikely source to help get him out of prison.

The star of Tiger King has written a letter to Cardi B, telling the rapper that he is depending on her to work some magic.

He posted the letter on Twitter last week however it was from an unverified account.

It read: "When you see the truth in Tiger King 2, I need you to rally everyone together to be my voice of freedom. Be my hero, girl."

The rapper has only just seen the message and sounded absolutely bewildered that he would ask for her help.

Joe's lawyer jumped in to say the letter is definitely legit and that he would love for Cardi to talk to Joe about the case.

John M. Phillips said: "I represent Joe. He heard about your message from prison. I'd love to put you two together on a phone call next week."

If this sounds bizarre that a convicted former exotic animal and zoo owner would be reaching out to one of the most well known celebrities in the world then you wouldn't be alone.

However, to understand the connection you have to cast your mind back to last year when Tiger King became everyone's biggest obsession last year.

Cardi B started watching the show and tweeted: "They did Joe so dirty over and over again... who you think is more wrong ? Narcissist Joe? Or Greedy Carol? And why?"

She added: "Bout to start a GoFundMe account for Joe. He shall be free."

The 'Bodak Yellow' artist wasn't the only one to defend Joe Exotic, even though the Netflix TV show highlighted the problematic handling of his animal park as well as the fact he was convicted of trying to organise a hit on his rival Carole Baskin.

Everyone now is gearing up to see what happens in the Tiger King sequel.

Tiger King 2 will look into the lives of the people who featured in the first instalment of the show and it has changed now that they're household names.

Announcing the return of Exotic and friends - well, not friends - Netflix said: "The global hit Tiger King, which attracted 64 million households in the first four weeks after its March 2020 premiere, will return to Netflix for more madness and mayhem."

The sequel will drop on November 17.
