Joe Exotic is now begging Gypsy Rose Blanchard for her help to free him from prison after being sentenced to 21 years.

As we reported, the Netflix documentary 'Tiger King', exposed Joe Exotic for his poor treatment of zoo animals. He was found guilty in 2019 -- one year before the docuseries was released -- in Oklahoma City federal court. He was convicted of hiring two men to kill his arch nemesis, Carole Baskin, who continuously bashed him online for the way he "cared" for his tigers.

In 2017, it was revealed by prosecutors that Exotic allegedly paid a man $3000 to execute Baskin after she accused him of being an animal abuser. He currently serving a 21-year in prison sentence, but that is not stopping him from begging celebrities for their help in his release.

Joe Exotic Says 'Tiger King' Ruined His Life

The 60-year-old recently spoke out about his docuseries, claiming it "ruined" his life and that it was the worst thing to happen to him. He went on to say that all the footage he filmed in the Netflix docuseries was intended for a separate project that he created years before 'Tiger King' came to be.

He is currently suffering from prostate cancer, which is believed to have spread to his bladder -- however, he refuses any further testing. Exotic also reportedly decided not to have the cancer treatment and signed a do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order, writing, “I want to stay here and just let it take its course.”
