TIGER King's Joe Exotic has claimed that he has been "sexually assaulted by jail staff and beaten while tied in a chair."
The infamous Netflix star has submitted a 257-page case to Donald Trump arguing that he should be pardoned from his sentence due to the alleged assault, TMZ reported on Tuesday.
He is currently serving 22 years in jail for attempting to hire someone to murder his big cat rival, Carole Baskin.
Exotic also wrote a letter to Donald Trump Jr, where he claimed "I have been sexually assaulted by jail staff, beat up and tied in a chair to the point the skin came off my arms."
He then begged "please be my hero … my hands are damaged from the abuse in jail so I'm sorry for the soppy (sic) writing and spelling," and wrote "#TrumpJr.2024."
The federal prison told TMZ that "there was no such assault."
The Tiger King also believes he will die in jail before his 2037 release as he suffers with anemia and common variable immune deficiency.
In a final plea to the president, Exotic implored: "Allow me to make you proud, to make America proud, to make the world proud. Be my hero please."
Exotic's team is expected to fly to Washington, DC on Wednesday to present the pardon application to someone at the White House.
Trump was asked at a press briefing in April if he had considered pardoning Exotic.
He said he would "take a look" but admitted he had not seen Tiger King.
