At the time, the world was just introduced to his situation which included a jury finding him guilty of a murder-for-hire plot against his longtime nemesis Carole Baskin, and a few animal-related crimes.
“Carol you think you slick b—-,” Cardi tweeted. Adding, “Bout to start a gofundme account for Joe. He shall be free.”

Joe Exotic To Cardi B: Just Watch ‘Tiger King 2!’
Joe Exotic got a bit of good news in the past few months after a judge ruled Joe’s case and its sentence had been made in error. Specifically, the ‘Tiger King’ star is looking at a few years being shaved off of his prison sentence — from 22 years to a lighter one of 17-21. Again, this isn’t a huge difference but a few years is a few years.
His lawyer was pumped about the decision, saying, “I knew when I agreed to represent Joe that an appeal would be difficult, but I also knew that the law was on Joe’s side.” Adding, “I am optimistic that the decision today is but one of many more victories to come for Joe — and his eventual freedom.”
In other words, we all need to watch ‘Tiger King 2,’ especially Cardi B!
