FORT WORTH, Texas – Joseph Maldonado-Passage aka Joe Exotic will remain behind bars despite an apology for an expectation from President Donald Trump.
Exotic was made famous on Netflix last year by Tiger King Miniseries and has been very public in terms of apologies.
But when the White House released a list of presidential contenders and ruckus shortly before midnight on Tuesday, his name was not on the list.
Earlier in the day, Exotic and his legal team were optimistic about their opportunities.
SKY4 found the limo he had booked on Tuesday afternoon to pick himself up from a Tarant County jail parked outside his attorney’s office.
The alien was sentenced to 22 years in prison and sent to prison for plotting to kill the nominee Carol Beskin, along with violating wildlife laws in the sale and death of some prisoners.
Foreign lawyers filed a pardon application with the Department of Justice in September.
Trump issued pardons and memorials for 143 people in the final hours of his presidency. Notable names include: former advisers Steve Bannon, Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and Republican fundraiser Elliot Birdy.
