The star of the Netflix series Tiger King is currently in prison after being convicted of plotting to kill longtime rival Carole Baskin, who owns Tampa, Florida’s Big Cat Rescue.
At a Wednesday press briefing, President Trump was asked whether he’d consider a pardon for Joe Exotic.
Trump said that he’ll “take a look”, adding that he hadn’t seen the show.
“I know nothing about it.”
The show has become a hit for isolated Americans.
On Monday, Donald Trump Jr spoke to SiriusXM and called Exotic’s sentence “aggressive.”
He said: “Now, I don’t even know exactly what he was charged with … I watched the show, but it was like, I don’t know exactly what he was guilty of or wasn’t.
“It doesn’t seem like he was totally innocent of anything.
“But when they’re saying, “We’re putting this guy away for 30 years,” I’m saying that seems sort of aggressive.”
