In a recent appearance on Good Morning America ahead of the DWTS shoot, Carole said, “Tiger King really glamorized animal abusers and vilified me for trying to stop animal abuse, and I got rid of me. So I felt really betrayed by it.

“But what amazed me was the number of people who believed in this misrepresentation of me without doing anything to find out who I really am. It’s been a nightmare since Tiger King aired.

The “misrepresentation” Baskin refers to is the insinuation in the documentary that she was responsible for the mysterious disappearance of her second husband Don Lewis in 1997.

It is possible that Lewis escaped to Costa Rica, but the Tiger King filmmakers devoted a lot of screen time to wild theories and accusations that Carole had fed him to his tigers, or hid his body in a septic tank, or both.
