The Big Cat Rescue CEO appeared alongside two young ladies in the clips. They performed a dance routine to the Brooklyn Charles track “Savage: Tiger King Edition.” Those videos have racked up more than 3 million views.
The lyrics to the song claim that Baskin murdered her missing husband Don Lewis, who has not been seen since 1997. In the TikTok videos, Baskin is seen laughing and jokingly trying to cut the music as Charles raps the lyrics: “Carole Baskin/ killed her husband/ whacked him”. “No, I didn’t!” Baskin mouths as the song continues to play.
Thousands of people left comments under the clips.
One fan said “How did you get her to agree to this?!”.
“You can say a lot of things about Carol, but you can’t say she’s not an icon!” another fan chimed in.
The Netflix doc which revolved around Baskin’s feud with zookeeper Joe Exotic, became a mega-hit during the early days of the pandemic. In the show, Exotic accused Baskin of having killed her husband before feeding them to tigers at her Big Cat Rescue sanctuary. Although Baskin has vehemently denied she was involved in Lewis’ mysterious disappearance.
“As part of that, it has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don in 1997″.
Florida-based Baskin has been basking in the limelight since she starred on the show. She didn’t want anything to do with Tiger King 2, but she is still racking up the dough on Cameo. In the meantime, she is also getting pretty good at TikTok. You can check out the clip below.
