Joe Exotic has said that he will be making a major announcement on Wednesday.
In a tweet shared on Monday, the Tiger King star teased that the reveal would be so dramatic that it would be the only thing that news outlets would be reporting on.
The 57-year-old wrote: ‘Major announcement will be made on Wednesday of this week. Every News station, radio, newspaper, and talk show will be talking about this.
‘Once this cat is out of the bag there is no one going to lie about anything anymore.’
The former zookeeper was denied a presidential pardon from Donald Trump in January and is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for animal abuse charges and the murder for hire plot against rival Carole Baskin.
Exotic’s team were previously so confident that he would be released from prison that they had a limo ready and waiting nearby.

Although his name wasn’t among the 143 people who Trump pardoned during his last day in office, his lawyers are still continuing their mission to get him freed.
Meanwhile, rival Baskin exclusively told Metro.co.uk that she’s considering closing her animal sanctuary, Big Cat Rescue, to the public for good over fears her tigers will be poisoned.
‘There were so many threats right after Tiger King of people saying they wanted to kill the cats,’ she said.

‘For them to say they wanted to kill me or kill my family, that’s one thing. But for them to say they wanted to come onto the property and kill the cats that’s something that a person actually could do.
‘They could bring poison in meat and just toss it, and somebody wouldn’t see that if they weren’t watching every single person on the tour.’
Tiger King debuted on Netflix in March last year and became an instant smash hit.
