Carole Baskin Trashes ‘Salacious’ ‘Tiger King’ Series – Twitter Calls BS

April 1, 2020 7:58 PM UTC
Carole Baskin wrote an epic rebuttal on her website, claiming she didn't kill her ex-husband and Netflix lied. The internet isn't having it. In fact, they're having a field day rooting against her.
  • Carole Baskin recently took to her website to refute claims that she murdered her ex-husband.
  • Twitter hilariously disagrees with her.
  • Her ex-husband’s cold case has been reopened.

The world is out to get Carole Baskin, according to Carole and her husband, Howard. ‘Tiger King’ is rife with clues that link Carol to the disappearance of her ex-husband, Don Lewis.

Carole took to her Big Cat Rescue website to bash Netflix for the way they portrayed her, and everyone else who spoke out against her. Despite ‘Tiger King’ centerpiece Joe Exotic serving 22 years in prison for murder-for-hire and other charges, the internet believes Joe. Carole Baskin is pissed. Twitter is having a field day.

Carole Baskin & Husband Howard Plea With the Public

Carole gave an all-encompassing, manifesto-level update to her website yesterday. In a new page titled “Refuting Netflix Tiger King,” she tries to defend herself and refute her portrayal in the ‘salacious and sensational’ documentary.

She paints the picture that her ex-husband Don Lewis was either killed by the mob, or that he disappeared due to mental illness. Carole implies Don had Alzheimer’s and/or bipolar disorder and, at one point, says ‘he could not read beyond a first-grade level.’

She then goes down the list, person-by-person, to refute the credibility of everyone who spoke against her in the show. Some lacked integrity. Some were ‘con-men.’ Others were ’embezzlers.’ She even called Don’s wife and children’ selfish.’ Keep in mind; this is the same wife who Don cheated on during his 10-year affair with Carole.

Her current husband, Howard Baskin, made an accompanying video. He attacked the creators of the documentary:

The biggest con-artists of them all are Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin. I believe they are devoid of integrity, don’t care about the animals, and clearly, clearly don’t care about the truth.

He tries to defend his wife:

Anyone who spends an hour with Carol would come away knowing that there was no way she had any involvement in Don’s disappearance.

Unfortunately, as he explains, some people spent more than an hour with Carol Baskin, and they weren’t convinced. Here he is speaking about the creators again:

Over the five years that they were making this series, they were here probably at least eight times. Each time for one to three days of filming.

But What Does the Internet Think of the Tiger King Duo?

Twitter wasn’t swayed by the Baskins’ plea.
