While many of the Tiger King cast have been enjoying, or at least been amused by, their new found fame, one of the show’s biggest characters has been on the receiving end of hate, abuse and threats.
And no, it’s not that man who was found guilty of animal abuse and hiring a man to kill his enemy.
The one to come out of Tiger King as the ‘villain’ is Carole Baskin.

For Baskin, the Netflix documentary presented a unique opportunity to expose the exploitation of animals, particularly big cats like tigers and lions, by America’s private roadside zoos.
As the founder of a big cat sanctuary in Florida, Carole Baskin no doubt expected to emerge from the project as some kind of saviour, or at least a selfless advocate. The ‘good guy’.
Instead, she’s emerged under a cloud of suspicion that she murdered her missing ex-husband, minced his remains and fed them to her beloved cats.
And in turn, became the most hated woman on the Internet right now.
