'Tiger King' star Joe Exotic reveals he has prostate cancer and wants Biden to pardon him so that he can get 'proper medical care'

 Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, has revealed that he has prostate cancer.

The 58-year-old "Tiger King" star shared his cancer diagnosis with his Twitter followers on Friday and once again begged for a presidential pardon.

Maldonado-Passage previously failed to receive clemency from former President Donald Trump despite persistent lobbying efforts by his legal team, Insider's Zac Ntim reported in January.

He is serving a 22-year jail sentence for plotting to kill his rival Carole Baskin and for 17 federal charges of animal abuse but is now seeking compassionate release.

Maldonado-Passage is calling on President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to sign a pardon so that he can "go home and get proper medical care and food," he wrote on Twitter.


Maldonado-Passage said that his "PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer." PSA, or prostate-specific antigens, is often elevated in men with prostate cancer.

"My body is tired. I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat," he wrote.

Maldonado-Passage said that he does not want "pity" but instead needs "the world" to help his attorney, John Philips, to get the president and vice president to grant him clemency.

Maldonado-Passage has claimed that his previous plea for clemency was rejected because he was "too innocent and too GAY," Insider reported in January.
