Joe Exotic is trying everything he can to get out of prison, and he likely feels like he’s got to make it happen soon, while President Trump is still in office. Entertainment Tonight reports that he is reaching out to Kim Kardashian to try to help him get a pardon from the President.

He wrote a hand written note to Kim Kardashian, who has become something of a criminal justice reform activist, asking for her help. ET got a copy of the letter.

In it, Joe Exotic says, “I am writing you this letter not as Joe Exotic but as the person Joseph Maldonado-Passage, asking you to please help me by just taking 10 minutes out of your life and placing a call to President Trump to look at my 257 page pardon it’s all the evidence I’m innocent and ask him to sign my pardon so I can return home toDillon and my father.”

He adds, “I have lost 57 years of work, my zoo, my animals, my mother has died, my dad is dying and I’ve been taken away from my husband who I love dearly. Everyone is so busy making movies, getting interviews, selling stuff and dressing up like me that everyone forgot I’m a real live person in prison and kept from even telling my own story for something I didn’t do.”
