Tiger King's Joe Exotic Released From Isolation
Most folks know that the star of the hit true-crime series Tiger King, Joe Exotic has been serving his very lengthy jail time. While in prison Joe was put in isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The isolation, also known as SHU (Segregated Housing Unit), prevents him from interacting with anyone, prisoners, guards, or friends and family via visitation or calls.
While in solitary confinement TMZ got a hold of a letter Joe sent out describing what life is like for him saying "My soul is dead, I struggle every day to hold on to what little hope I can find. They keep me locked down 24/7 with no phone, email, or commissary, and you will never understand the mental abuse this does to a person."
He even confessed "I'll be dead in two-to-three months. It's like I have been sentenced to death row. They stopped all of my medication except one. This place is hell on earth."
Now, Joe's team has posted to his Instagram announcing he had finally been released from isolation! "BREAKING: Joe Exotic has been moved out of the SHU (isolation)!! He now has a room with a hospital bed and a WINDOW!"
