Tiger King is the Netflix sensation that has subscribers everywhere talking about Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin, and what exactly happened to Carole Baskin's first husband since his disappearance back in 1997. She has remarried in the years since Don Lewis went missing, and Tiger King never delivered a definitive explanation for what happened. In fact, a lot of people in and out of the docu-series are of the opinion that Baskin killed her husband and fed him to her tigers.
As it turns out, O.J. Simpson has some very public thoughts as well. He took to Twitter to explain that people have been asking him to watch Tiger King, which is likely an especially big hit for Netflix due to the coronavirus social distancing. He finally gave in and watched six of the seven episodes before sharing his opinion about Don Lewis' disappearance and Carole Baskin's alleged role:
Add O.J. Simpson to the list of Tiger King viewers who think Carole Baskin killed her husband and fed him to tigers! Netflix subscribers who have checked out the docu-series aren't the only ones putting thought into what happened to Don Lewis. Tampa's Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister hit social media to "ask for new leads" in the case, and the fact that he included #CaroleBaskin in the tweet makes it pretty clear that Lewis' wife is a prime suspect.
The sheriff has stated that he's already receiving multiple tips per day and Carole Baskin refused a polygraph, after advice from her lawyer. O.J. Simpson's instincts don't quite make for evidence that could help out Chad Chronister in cracking the case. Baskin refuted claims that she had a role in her husband's disappearance on her Big Cat Rescue website, but the speculation is unlikely to die down for as long as Tiger King remains on the top of Netflix's Top 10.
O.J. Simpson had more to say about Tiger King than just that he thinks Carole Baskin killed her first husband and fed him to tigers. Take a look at the full video that Simpson shared on social media:
Carole Baskin hasn't been quiet in the aftermath of Tiger King, and not just because of her denial of accusations that she killed her husband. She shared a message for Saturday Night Live fan-favorite Kate McKinnon, who is working on a miniseries in which she'd play Baskin. Doc Antle, who also appeared in Tiger King is a less-than-flattering light, reacted to his portrayal as well. PETA isn't happy about Tiger King either, but that's hardly a surprise.
If you haven't checked out Tiger King just yet, you can find all seven episodes of the docu-series streaming right now on Netflix. With the coronavirus pandemic bringing a lot of television production to a halt, streaming could be the place to be for TV in the not-too-distant future.
