Big Cat Rescue CEO Carole Baskin is back on social media and is raising eyebrows.
The “Tiger King” star was recently portrayed by “Saturday Night Live” comedian Kate McKinnon in the Peacock series “Joe v. Carole,” which paints Carole in a much more favorable light than her Netflix predecessor.
Baskin has been publicly accused of murdering her husband, Don Lewis, who has not been seen since he allegedly left for Costa Rica in 1997. Although her arch-nemesis Joe Exotic has loudly and frequently proclaimed that Carole killed him and fed him to her tigers, Carole has never been charged with a crime.
However, some fans were absolutely shocked to see Carole dancing to a song joking about her killing her husband.

In September 2020, Carole Baskin appeared as a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” where she danced to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” Although she was swiftly eliminated, it seems that she was eager to show off her dance skills once again in a new TikTok video.
In the video, Baskin can be seen dancing alongside two young women to “Savage: Tiger King Edition.” When Brooklyn Charles raps “Carole Baskin / killed her husband / whacked him” Baskin can be seen mouthing “No, I didn’t!”
The video has been seen over four million times and has over 561K likes and over 5,000 comments.
“She knows she did it but she vibing,” one user wrote.
“Pandemic tik tok would’ve had this viral already,” said another.
“‘Your honor I’d like to submit this tiktok into evidence,’” another joked.
“How did you get her to agree to this?” another fan asked.
“You can say a lot of things about miss Carole but you cannot say she isn’t an icon,” another commented.
Many users expressed confusion about whether or not Don Lewis was actually found alive in Costa Rica. In the quickly forgotten Netflix sequel, “Tiger King 2,” several people claimed that Don Lewis was alive in Costa Rica, despite the fact that he was declared legally dead in 2002.
Carole Baskin Claims Homeland Security Told Her Don Lewis Is Still Alive!
As The Blast previously reported, Carole Baskin revealed that Homeland Security told her that they found proof that Don Lewis was alive in Costa Rica back in November 2021. The couple first got married in 1991, but their relationship was peppered with financial instability and frequent arguments that Baskin chronicled online video journals that can be seen in the Netflix sequel. By 1997, Lewis had gone missing.
In an interview on ITV’s “This Morning,” Baskin explained that Netflix told her that “we just want your answer on [Lewis’ disappearance] so that we can lay that matter to rest,” however “that’s not what they did; they turned it into this huge mystery.”
She revealed that “one of the really exciting things that came out of ‘Tiger King 2’ is that they produced a letter from Homeland Security, and it says that a special agent in charge with the FBI at Homeland Security reached out to the sheriff’s detective George Fernandez, which means this had to have happened after 2002, because Homeland Security wasn’t even around until 2002.”
She explained, “They said that my husband Don Lewis is alive and well in Costa Rica. And yet all of this hay has been made about me having something to do with his disappearance, when Homeland Security has known where he is at least since back then.”
When asked if he could survive in Costa Rica by himself, Baskin replied that he “didn’t think that he was capable of supporting himself.” She admitted that she had “agreed” to let him take “about $1 million dollars down into Costa Rica… so he could prove to himself that he could make a living.”
She said that some investments that he made went bad, and that they were only able to recover $80,000 out of the initial investment a few years later.
“So I don’t know how it is that Homeland Security says he’s alive and well in Costa Rica, but I’m glad to hear it,” she concluded.
So is Don Lewis still alive in Costa Rica somewhere? It seems that no one really knows!
