Attorneys for Oklahoma's Joe Exotic are on the move trying to gain attention for their client in an effort to have him pardoned by President Donald Trump.
Joe Exotic, born Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is a former zoo operator and Oklahoma gubernatorial candidate who became famous after the airing of Netflix's true-crime docuseries "Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness."
Exotic has described himself as a "gay, gun-toting cowboy with a mullet" and his feud with Big Cat Rescue CEO Carole Baskin is becoming the stuff of legends.
The legal team, under the direction of Joe Exotic, have rented a tour bus and covered it with a large graphic wrap asking President Trump to "Please Pardon Joe Exotic". The legal team calls themselves "Team Tiger".
The bus has a 6 foot tall head shot of Joe Exotic on both sides along with Joe's favorite tiger.
Fans taking a tour of the bus will be asked to donate to the former zoo owner and entertainer's legal fund before departing the bus. The bus was seen outside Trump International Hotel in D.C. Wednesday afternoon.
Reports indicate that Carole Baskin will not be taking the tour.
