Cardi B has claimed she wants to help Tiger King star Joe Exotic be freed from prison, where he is currently serving a 22-year sentence.

Netflix documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness details the extraordinary events of a rivalry between Exotic and Carole Baskin, CEO of the Tampa animal sanctuary Big Cat Rescue.

Exotic, real name Joespeh Maldonado-Passage, was the figurehead of GW Exotic Animal Park, a 16-acre ranch in Oklahoma that housed more than 1,200 lions, tigers, leopards, and other animals.

He is currently imprisoned for two counts of murder-for-hire and 17 wildlife-related charges.

“What ya think bout Tiger King? I’m on the second episode and I’m a little lost cause I started f***ing,” Cardi tweeted to her fans this weekend.

The rapper has tweeted a number of times about the seven-part series, asking in one post: “Who you think burn Joe studio?”

In another, she tweeted: “They did Joe so dirty over and over again… who you think is more wrong? Narcissist Joe? Or Greedy Carol? And why?”

Cardi has since announced that she wants to start a fundraiser: “Bout to start a GoFundMe account for Joe. He shall be free.”

Tiger King is available to stream on Netflix.
