“I told them to lose my number. Deceive me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me,” the Big Cat Rescue owner said at the exit.
Baskin claimed that after the broadcast, the producers made her believe she would be the show’s heroine, and then delved into rumors that she had murdered her first husband, Don Lewis, and fed her body to her tigers. Allegations she strongly denies.
As reported by Page Six, Baskin, who channeled his controversial story into the show, appeared in ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and various projects such as a mobile game and a new cryptocurrency. He will then speak at the ‘Virtual Influencer Summit’ on cyberbullying.
“The first three months [after ‘Tiger King’ aired] my phone rang non-stop with people shouting obscenities. After that, it slowed down. 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’d want to protect them, ”he told Page Six.
Lewis and Baskin were married in 1991. He mysteriously disappeared in 1997. According to TMZ, his family has hired famous lawyer Alex Spiro to investigate. The family also posted an ad during Baskin’s debut, “Dancing with the Stars,” asking for advice on his disappearance.
Baskin has been reading from her magazines on YouTube to “prove” she didn’t kill her first husband. She told Page Six that it’s all a rumor used by her competition in the big cat business to defraud her.
“Once they told the media, ‘She killed her husband and fed him tigers,’ it worked for these animal abusers to say these things publicly. But it’s not true and all you have to do is to examine it and know that it is not. true, “he says.
Baskin also believes the timing had a lot to do with him shooting her to infamy.
She shared, “The Tiger King” came out when the blockade occurred; you had Joe Exotic saying “Carole Baskin was responsible for all the bad.” People needed someone to blame. It was a perfect storm, “Baskin added.” If it had been broadcast right now, it would have been a different experience … it was still edited intelligently and had things that weren’t true, but I don’t know. I don’t think so. that there would have been a global outpouring of vitriol because people were so scared at the time. “(ANI)
