Cardi B may be "Team Joe Exotic," but she won't be able to assist with his release.
Shortly after the "Please Me" rapper tweeted that she was "Bout to start a gofundme account for Joe," vowing that "He shall be free," TMZ published an article explaining how that would not be possible.
"Money CANNOT be raised on [GoFundMe] to fund the defense of inmates convicted of violent crimes, plain and simple," the outlet reported. "It's in [the platform's] terms of service and everyone, including Cardi, who uses GoFundMe has to abide."
While many were ready to see Cardi fight for Joe's freedom —he's currently serving a 22-year prison sentence — she responded to TMZ's article, saying she never actually had plans to help free him. "Omg 😩😩😩😂😂I was just playing," she wrote on Twitter, responding to TMZ's tweet of their article. "I do love him tho and he deff needed better representation .oooooooooooooooooo here Kitty Kitty."
The true-crime series took audiences on a wild journey thanks to its protagonist/antagonist (he's both if you ask me), Joe Exotic, whose feud with Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, turned into a full-on murder-for-hire conspiracy that — SPOILER ALERT — led to Joe getting locked up. While Joe is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for two counts of murder-for-hire and 17 federal charges of animal abuse, audiences were left wondering whether Exotic was set up by his shady business partners, which may explain Cardi's passionate tweets.
