Carole Baskin rose to fame thanks to the Netflix original docuseries “The Tiger King.” When she was asked about doing a second season she told them to kick rocks.
Baskin, who many believe killed her ex husband and fed him to tigers, told Page Six that Tiger King producers approached her about being part of a follow-up documentary. She wanted nothing to do with them anymore and she made it very clear.
“I told them to lose my number. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”
Baskin obviously didn’t appreciate how she was edited into the last Tiger King series. She played the role of a villain and, as we previously stated, some people believe she legit killed her ex husband and fed him to tigers.
Carole Baskin was told by producers that she would be the hero of The Tiger King. That is not how things came out at all, in fact, now people think she killed her ex Don Lewis instead.
“The first three months [after ‘Tiger King’ aired] my phone rang incessantly with people screaming obscenities. After that it slowed down,” she tells us. “I didn’t take it personally, but it really affected my husband [Howard Baskin] and daughter. If someone said something about someone you love, you would want to protect them.”
There are plenty of developments for the rest of the Tiger King cast since the first series wrapped up. Sadly Joe Exotic won’t be able to participate unless they can work out some kind of incarceration interview. He was denied that Trump pardon that he had so much faith in, and he remains behind bars for plotting to kill Carole Baskin.
