Netflix's Tiger King, Joe Exotic has revealed that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Currently, he is serving 22 years in prison for animal abuse charges and hiring someone to kill Carol Baskin.
He is hoping to grab the attention of people like President Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and lawyer John Philips to help him get an earlier release and to let people know about symptoms he is suffering from. This is what Joe shared on Twitter-
‘John Phillips has received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer,’ Joe explains.
‘The prison has approved testing to verify what stage it is in. My body is tired, I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat.
‘I don’t want anyone’s pity, what I need is when John Phillips gets the evidence he is working on, I need the world to help him get President Biden, VP Harris, and the Attorney General to listen to the evidence and see that it’s not just city cops out of control with corruption, but his very own Department of Justice and make this right and sign that pardon that Trump left behind so I can go home and get proper medical care and proper food.
‘Thank you for all the love and support from all over the world. I love you all. Wish me luck…#JusticeForJoeExotic #TigerKing #JoeExotic @JohnPhillips.’
Exotic also sought clemency from the former president, Donald Trump, but this was ignored and he remains in prison.
