Kanye West’s wife, will she answer his request? During the first confinement, Netflix put online a documentary series entitled In the kingdom of the wild animals, centered on Joe Exotic and his zoo. If the latter had seduced more than 34 million spectators in ten days, the former zoo owner is currently serving a 22-year sentence for having plotted to assassinate his rival, Carole Baskin, as well as for a series of accusations of animal cruelty. However, Joe Exotic insists he is innocent and wants Kim Kardashian to help him contact Donald Trump so he can overturn his conviction and let him regain his freedom. And for good reason, the young woman is an aspiring lawyer and uses her legal know-how and her celebrity status to help free those who, according to her, no longer deserve to be behind bars.
Considering he didn’t deserve to be in jail, Joe Exotic wrote to Kim Kardashian, “I know you’ve never met me and you may never want to, but I believe in values of our justice system are important to you. I am writing this letter to you not as Joe Exotic, but as the person of Joseph Maldonado-Passage, asking you to please help me by taking just 10 minutes of your life and calling President Trump to look at my 257-page Pardon, that’s all proof that I’m innocent and asking him to sign my pardon so that I can go home to Dillon (her husband, editor’s note) and my father.” Before adding: “I lost 57 years of work, my zoo, my animals, my mother is dead, my father is dying and I was taken from my husband whom I love deeply.”
“I am a real person”
While several fictions about the life of Joe Exotic are currently being considered and the names of Nicolas Cage and Rob Lowe have already been brought up to play the role of Joe Exotic, the one who claimed to be the most prolific tiger breeder in the States- Unis said: “Everyone is so busy making movies, getting interviews, selling stuff and dressing like me that everyone has forgotten that I am a real person in prison and that I not even tell my own story for something I haven’t done. ” Joe Exotic then asked Kim Kardashian to phone the President, promising, “No one has to even know you did.”
