Joe Exotic is trying once again to get a pardon from the president after Donald Trump let him down back in January 2021.

The Tiger King star has been in prison since 2020 for his murder-for-hire scheme against Carol Baskin, as documented in Netflix's Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. He was resentenced earlier this year, and one year was taken off of his 22-year sentence.

Now, taking to Instagram, he's shared a shirtless snap of Jesse Meester, who you'd have seen on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, 90 Day Fiancé: The Single Life and Darcey & Stacey, to name a few; he also dated Darcey Silva.

"Meet my amazing dear friend Jesse Meester, actor, model, and so much more. You will see him around on my stuff more and more as he is going to help me get a voice to the White House for President Biden to sign my pardon before November of this year," Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, captioned the photo. "Show him some love. Love you, Jesse," he said.

Meester replied in the comments section of the post, writing: "We love you too Joe! People close to you turned their back on you, but not us. You helped many people through lockdown and we should never forget the truth and authenticity you lived your life with. It's sad that the backstabbing and lying has become the norm this society [sic]. Time to unite and fight back to get you out."
