Initially, Tiger King was just an interesting insight in the life of big cat owners. However, with the passage of time, things are becoming darker for the people featured in the show. Recently, it was revealed that Carole Baskin is getting death threats since the release of the show.
Although every aspect of Tiger King is shocking and interesting, nothing comes close to the disappearance of Don Lewis
We all know that Tiger King is one of the most unique shows of recent times. However, the fact that a person who is not even in the show becomes a hot topic shows how popular Tiger King is. When Carole Baskin was featured in the show, no one anticipated how important she will be. Since then, people have started actively trying to solve the mystery behind Don Lewis. Not only Joe Exotic, the entire world is determined to find out the truth. However, Carole Baskin and her husband, Howard Baskin, has shared their disappointment on her portrayal in the show. They have repeatedly denied the accusations and expressed feeling betrayed by the makers of Tiger King.
Sadly for Carole Baskin, some people have taken it too far and she is getting death threats
While some people just saw the funny side of things and kept making memes about it, some took it a step further. Despite her not being a suspect in the disappearance of Don Lewis, Carole Baskin is feeling the burn. Recently, she shared in an interview that she was misled by the show makers. While Carole Baskin though to be interviewing for a documentary about animal abuse, it became much more personal for her. She said:
“I just feel so angry that people have totally missed the point. And the point is these cubs are being abused and exploited and the public is enabling that.”
According to Howard Baskin:
“There’s almost no way to describe the intensity of the feeling of betrayal.”
Furthermore, Carole Baskin said that people have gotten hold of her phone number and leave death threats and hurl abuse. She is scared to leave the house and live in constant fear. Not only that, but she has also seen drones flying over her house and people lurking around the Big Cat Rescue sanctuary gates. While people are curious about her ex-husband’s disappearance, harassing someone like this is equally wrong. Sometimes fame brings more trouble.
