Joe Exotic’s team have a limo ready and waiting for him near his prison in Texas ahead of tomorrow in case he is given a presidential pardon.
The Tiger King star, who is currently serving a 22-year sentence for animal abuse and a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin, is hoping to be freed by Donald Trump on Tuesday before Joe Biden is inaugurated as the next leader of the US.
Celebratory plans are already in place for Exotic, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, and it has been revealed the first thing he wants to do as a free man is have his hair cut.
‘This time tomorrow, we’re going to be celebrating,’ private investigator Eric Love, who is leading Exotic’s case, exclusively told Metro.co.uk. ‘We have good reason to believe it will come through.
‘We’re confident enough we already have a limousine parked about half a mile from the prison. We are really in action mode right now.’
Love continued: ‘I’ve got make-up, wardrobe, the whole unit that will come up. The first thing Joe wants to do, he wants his hair done.
‘He hasn’t had his hair done in two-and-a-half years. That’s the first order of business. Then we’ll probably go and get some pizzas, steak, maybe a McRib.’
Speaking about why he believes Exotic will be pardoned, Love explained: ‘I think the president has sided with us and I believe it will take most of the limelight away from president-elect Joe Biden.’
Love added that he has already prepared a video message to Trump, thanking him for granting Exotic clemency.
‘Last night, I shot a congratulatory video thanking Donald Trump so we have it queued up and ready to go,’ he shared.
‘As soon as we get the word, we’re going to execute that video to the White House and thank them.’
It’s expected Trump will hand out 100 pardons in the hours he has remaining in the White House. Only time will tell if Exotic will be among those freed.
Tiger King is available to stream on Netflix.
