Joe Exotic's underwear line with his face on crotch sells out for $50K, Internet amused he's making money in jail
Joe’s custom boxer briefs went on sale on Labor Day and were sold out within hours and the limited edition of the ‘Casket Baskin’ boxer brief was the top seller
Joe Exotic is again in the news. But this time it's because of his fashion line. According to TMZ, the 'Tiger King' star’s 'Revenge' collection with Odaingerous was a huge success. It features a range of leopard-print boxers with his face plastered across the crotch. Joe’s custom boxer briefs went on sale on Labor Day and were sold out within hours. They did a business of around $50,000 in online sales, according to the report.
In this case as well his nemesis Carole Baskin had a tiny part to play, as per the website. The report states that the limited edition of the ‘Casket Baskin’ boxer brief was the top seller. The apparel depicts blood-red ice cream in a cone suggestive of Baskin Robbins. TMZ further states that while the first batch of underwear was sold out within minutes, Odaingerous is updating its online store and restocking due to the excess traffic.
According to The Sun, the underwear is priced at $24 for men while the women's 'cheeky brief underwear' is for $21. The Sun also states that before the launch, the clothing retailer was also sold out of black 'Pardon Joe Exotic' t-shirts and the ‘Fake Friends’ hoodies and joggers. His underwear collection ‘Revenge’ has reached international shores as well. They have put up 3 billboards in Mexico, as per TMZ.
As reported, his legal team recently again appealed for presidential pardon from Donald Trump. The lawyers have submitted a 257-page case to the president and among the reasons listed for his early release from the 22-year murder-for-hire sentence is the claim that he was sexually assaulted behind bars. "I have been sexually assaulted by jail staff, beaten up and tied in a chair to the point the skin came off my arms," Exotic wrote in the letter obtained by TMZ that was reportedly hand-delivered to Trump by his legal team. He went on to say, "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 also added, "#TrumpJr.2024".
The 'Tiger King' star was convicted of two counts of murder-for-hire to kill rival animal rights activist Carole Baskin, eight counts of violating the Lacey Act for falsifying wildlife records and nine counts of violating the Endangered Species Act in January. Despite the court verdict, Exotic claimed in the documents that he never tried to kill Baskin and that all threats he made against her were just "hyperbole". His lawyers added that the "threats" were "simply another aspect of his showmanship... Joe's jokes, at most, in bad taste, were merely jokes".
Exotic's third husband who he is currently married to, Dillon Passage, also added a few lines in the plea. "I see a sweet, big heart man, with good intentions, who took a few steps down a dark road, and he's just waiting to be pulled out of it," he wrote. In conclusion, Exotic wrote, "Allow me to make you proud, to make America proud, to make the world proud. Be my hero please."
