‘Tiger King’ Star Carole Baskin: Netflix Betrayed Me!!

Carole Baskin, one of the stars of the Netflix documentary, Tiger King, says that the streaming platform “betrayed” her — she regrets participating in the show.

“I felt betrayed by them,” Baskin told Fox News. “We worked with the producers for five years. When they came to us they said what they were working on was ‘Blackfish’ for big cats. ‘Blackfish’ showed just a horrible, horrible life for dolphins and whales being kept in these concrete pools. After it, the whole industry of whale shows and stealing whales and putting them in aquariums came to a halt. To do the same for big cats, we thought [a documentary] exposing how the cub petting is so cruel would be great.”

“We were all on board,” Baskin continued. “In fact, they said the name of their show was going to be ‘Stolen Wildlife’ and they said Joe would be in it but in five minutes of it.”

Baskin quickly became the villain of the documentary after a huge portion centered on the disappearance of her ex-husband, Don Lewis, and allegations that she may have fed him to her tigers. 

She maintains her innocence.
