Like the rest of us, Cardi B has been super into Tiger King, and like the rest of us, knows Carole Baskin did it.

In a series of since-deleted tweets, the rapper vowed to launch a GoFundMe account to free Joe Exotic, who is in prison after a jury found him guilty in a murder-for-hire plot to take down Baskin, as well as some animal-related crimes.

After TMZ shot down her idea, noting that GoFundMe doesn't allow fundraisers in defense of inmates convicted of violent crimes, Cardi tweeted that she was joking about her whole Free Joe Exotic movement.

"Omg I was just playing," she wrote, before adding, "I do love him tho and he deff needed better representation .oooooooooooooooooo here Kitty Kitty."
