Unexpected deaths, quarantine and restriction rules introduced by the coronavirus pandemic, and more made us remember 2020 as a cursed year for us. However, the famous host Jimmy Kimmel explained what was the best sentence to describe this year.
On Thursday, Jimmy Kimmel took to Twitter and summarized 2020 with a hilarious sentence. The 53-year-old host said that Joe Exotic, known as the Tiger King, appealed to Kim Kardashian to ask Donald Trump to help him get a pardon.
Here’s what he said:
“If there’s one sentence that sums up 2020, it’s ‘Joe Exotic asks Kim Kardashian to help him get a pardon from Donald Trump.'”
In the Netflix documentary about big cat breeding with eccentric characters and its discovery of its strange underworld, Tiger King star Joe Exotic (Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage) was sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2018 for killing five tigers, violating protection, and attempting murder against another zoo owner Carole Baskin.
After the Netflix series became popular in the world, everyone started a campaign to get Joe Exotic out of jail. Joe Exotic then made a call while in prison and wrote a letter to Kim Kardashian asking President Donald Trump to release him.
Donald Trump also showed during a press conference that he supports Joe Exotic’s pardon and said he did not understand why he served 22 years in prison.
