Team Joe Exotic is in town to demonstrate on his behalf.
While details of Team Joe Exotic's plans are vague, the #helpfreejoe tag indicates they're in Washington, D.C., for a presidential pardon. Their ringleader, Eric Love, is a self-proclaimed private investigator and philanthropist organizing the movement.
Fans of Joe Maldonado-Passage, also known as "Joe Exotic" of Netflix fame, can help support the Tiger King by signing a petition for his release ... and buying official merchandise, of course. ICYMI, Joe is currently serving a 22-year sentence for a number of charges, including solicitation of a hitman and the killing of animals at his zoo.
Meet The #HelpFreeJoe Team: Eric Love, aka Fort Worth famous Big Juicy, is a private investor & philanthropist. He’s the muscle leading the charge, Joe’s executive manager & lead investigator on the case.

The gang rolled into town on Tuesday and went straight to Trump International Hotel. Their giant, flashy bus has been seen around D.C. as they take in the sights and took their message up to Capitol Hill.
It wasn't a straight shot for the tour bus full of Joe fans, though. They made pit stops at Graceland and The Grand Ole Opry on the way to the nation's capital. Why waste the gas money, amirite?
Next stop unless stopped... Grand Ole Opry @opry! Come check out the #helpfreejoe team tonight at 8:30! Sign the petition https://t.co/17fallFZoZ & spread the word! #TigerKing #TigerKingNetflix #JoeExotic pic.twitter.com/WRmJnJyPhK— Joe Exotic (@joe_exotic) May 18, 2020
