Following on from her sudden and bizarre Tiger King fame, Carole Baskin has resorted to selling personalized videos for a bit of extra cash… But her most recent video, in which she tried and failed to rap along to 50 Cent has left us all wanting to claw our eyes out.
Netflix’s docuseries, Tiger King gave us a majestic insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.
The 7-part series retold the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.
The spotlight is always placed upon Carole Baskin, mostly in regards to her leopard print wardrobe and her mysteriously missing husband.
Well, on the morning of August 18, 1997, Carole’s millionaire husband, Don Lewis, vanished at the age of sixty.
His car was later found at a nearby airport.
Some of Don’s relatives speculated that Carole was involved in his disappearance.
In fact, this claim was made by the oldest of Don’s 4 children, Donna Pettis, then forty-two, back in 1998.
She claimed that Carole feeding his body to the big cats would be “a perfect scenario to dispose of someone. We were upset that the cops didn’t test the DNA on the meat grinder.”
He was not granted the order.
Carole has repeatedly protested her innocence, and says that any claims made that she fed her husband to the big cats are “ludicrous.”
And to this day, nobody has been charged with anything to do with his disappearance.
And the Hillsborough County Sheriff, Chad Chronister, wants fans of the show to help crack it.
“I figured it was time to use the popularity of the show to see if anyone wanted to come forward with new leads.”
Carole and her current husband, Howard, have been subjected to constant abuse online.
Speaking to the New York Post, she said:
“He’s [Joe Exotic] been trying, since 2009, to get his minions to kill me. He was constantly going on his internet show, saying that he has to get rid of me. It was very disturbing. The kinds of people who back up what he does are not stable people. It would be one thing if he went out to mainstream America. But he was going out to a group of whack-jobs.”
More and more people wanted to hear Carole’s “confession” about the whole meat grinder rumor.
Pointing out in a blog post that her tigers eat meat broken down into 1-inch cubes before being ground in her tabletop meat grinder, she said:
“The idea that a human body could be put through it is idiotic.”
People are still convinced that she was behind the murder of Don Lewis.
Aside from all the grisliness, the mystery, and the suspicions – Carole has got herself a new job, making personalized videos for fans on the video site, Cameo.
But Carole’s cameo business has been booming, and she has been consistently churning out the personalized videos for eager fans.
Because she’s charging around $207 per video.
A fan, known only as Charlotte, requested for Carole and her husband to wish her a happy birthday by singing 50 Cent’s birthday song, “In Da Club.”
“Hey, all you cool cats and kittens. It’s Carole Baskin and Howard Baskin at Big Cat Rescue. We are here with the crib mates to wish Charlotte a happy birthday.”
Carole and her husband then started to robotically rap along to the song, while waving around a bottle of Bacardi rum.
Though many admitted to loving every second… But, for the most part, most of us were left cringing and wanting to erase the video from our memories forever.
