Joe Exotic’s husband, Dillon Passage, is currently on his way to Washington in a Tiger King tour bus to seek a presidential pardon from Donald Trump.

The Tiger King is serving 22 years behind bars for animal abuse and a murder-for-hire plot against his nemesis Carole Baskin — but he doesn’t intend to remain there for long.

Encouraged by Donald Trump Jr’s suggestion that his father should release the criminal tiger keeper “just for the meme“, Exotic is pushing for the president to hear his case and free him from prison.

When asked if he would ever consider pardoning the Tiger King star for his many crimes, Trump previously joked: “I’ll look into it”.

So now, Dillon is now making his way to the White House in an enormous tour bus emblazoned with his husband’s pleading face and the words: “President Trump please pardon Joe Exotic”.

Dillon Passage hopes half a million will sign his petition to free Joe Exotic.

Undeterred by the coronavirus pandemic raging across the country, ‘Team Tiger’ hit the road on Monday morning and expect to reach Washington any day now.

Dillon brings with him Joe’s legal team and a petition for his release which he hopes to gain 500,000 signatures before they arrive.

In a video posted to Instagram, Dillon said: “If I could get any of you to go sign it, that would be awesome.

“Anything and everything that you guys can do counts and it matters and it’s so much appreciated. We’re gonna get our dude out of there.”

Tiger King star launches clothing line.

Because Joe Exotic clearly can’t resist a side hustle even while in prison, anyone who signs the petition will automatically be added to his MediaExotic newsletter and receive exclusive deals from his sponsors.

The Tiger King has also launched a clothing line from prison called Odaingerous: The Revenge Collection, which reportedly sold out within minutes.

“The next generation of streetwear apparel” is described as “bold, iconic, edgy and Odaingerously unapologetic — all traits that Exotic says he embodies.
