The piece of pop culture history is the perfect souvenir of 2020: "Tiger King" and the coronavirus.
Archie Manners and Josh Pieters believe that their exclusive Carole Baskin interview was a "win-win."
“Tiger King” and Carole Baskin’s bizarre saga just took another surreal turn.In a bizarre prank only made possible by the coronavirus lockdown, two YouTubers used Zoom to pose as Jimmy Fallon producers and trick Baskin into giving her first interview since the release of the hit Netflix docuseries “Tiger King.”Claiming to be producers from “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon,” YouTubers Josh Pieters and Archie Manners reached out to Baskin to make her think she was appearing on the late-night show that is being broadcast from Fallon’s home during the coronavirus safe-at-home order. The pair recently pulled a similar stunt on some British celebrities — like pop star Craig David — using clips from “The Late Late Show With James Corden” that were aired during the COVID-19 lockdown, with Manners pretending to be a producer on the Zoom call.Also Read: Bill Maher Rips Into 'Tiger King' Star Joe Exotic: Torturing Animals Is What Got Us Into This Mess (Video)“There is often a moment where there isn’t a clip that’s suitable,” Pieters told Insider.com. “But that’s luckily where I have Archie on standby who can come in and act as the producer and say, ‘Oh we’ve got a quick change there, Jimmy’s just doing this,’ or ‘Jimmy’s just doing his makeup,’ and then it sort of explains why something sort of went wrong.”Baskin was chosen by the pair as a wild attempt to get the most unlikely guest they could find, and they said they were surprised when she agreed to the interview. Baskin, an activist fighting against private zoos that sell big cats, has been thrust into the public spotlight by “Tiger King,” which depicts her feud against exotic zoo owner Joe Exotic. Baskin has spoken out against the docuseries, calling it “salacious and sensational,” particularly in regards to its depiction of Exotic’s claim that Baskin killed her second husband who disappeared in 1997.Watch Baskin’s interview in the clip above.Read original story ‘Tiger King': Carole Baskin Unwittingly Gives First Interview to 2 YouTubers Posing as Jimmy Fallon Producers (Video) At TheWrap
The bonkers tale of Joe Exotic, the former keeper of a private zoo in Oklahoma, and his vendetta against Carole Baskin covers a lot of ground.
John Oliver admitted that he wasn’t fully aware of everything Joe Exotic was up to when he showed a clip of the “Tiger King” in 2016.
Joe Exotic's foil hits out at speculation that she killed her husband, and says the series should have focused on animal cruelty.
The Florida sheriff whose territory includes Carole Baskin’s exotic-animal sanctuary, Big Cat Rescue, has told TMZ that he has suspicions that she may have been involved in the disappearance of her second husband, Don Lewis, who mysteriously vanished 23 years ago.Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister also told TMZ that he is not “yet” ready to say that Baskin is a person of interest in the cold case.‘Tiger King’s’ Carole Baskin Denies Murdering Second Husband, Mincing Him and Feeding Him to Big CatsThe Baskins have used their website to strongly deny allegations made in the Netflix show Tiger King by the documentary’s antihero, Joe Exotic, that Carole murdered Lewis and fed his body to their big cats.As viewers of the series will know, Exotic is in prison, serving 22 years for plotting to murder Baskin.Chronister told TMZ: “I’m extremely suspicious, but not just of her, of this whole circle here. I don’t want to allude to the fact or insinuate that she’s a person of interest and that this is who we are focusing on. I’m not comfortable saying that yet.“Listen, there’s normally not one person that commits a homicide, it’s always a couple of people. This had to be extremely planned out, this had to be well thought out, there’s someone else involved in this, there is someone who is paid to do it, there is someone who helped do it. I’m hoping that person wants to come and get this off their chest and help law enforcement do the right thing.”Chronister said there would be a possibility such a person would be given a deal, saying: “You start talking about different things with immunity, you know. Deals are cut and every deal is on the table right now. Help us solve this case.”Last week, Chronister tweeted a message seeking new information on the disappearance of Lewis in August 1997, fanning the flames of rumors that Baskin was involved in his vanishing.Baskin said in her post that she believed Lewis had Alzheimer’s disease and admitted he was “not easy to live with.”Three months before his abandoned van was found at a small airport near the couple’s home in Tampa, he had sought a domestic-violence injunction against Baskin, which a court rejected. However, Baskin has long maintained that she had nothing to do with the disappearance of her former husband.The Baskins claim their sanctuary is grossly misrepresented in the hit Netflix docuseries, which lifts the lid on the bizarre world of backyard tiger-keepers, zookeeper rivalries, blackmail, and betrayal in the exotic-animal trade.The Baskins have slammed the directors of the series, Eric Goode and Rebecca Chalking. They said they agreed to co-operate because the pair told them “they wanted to make the big-cat version of Blackfish [the documentary that exposed abuse at SeaWorld] that would expose the misery caused by the rampant breeding of big-cat cubs for cub-petting exploitation and the awful life the cats lead in roadside zoos and backyards if they survive.“There are not words for how disappointing it is to see that the series not only does not do any of that, but has had the sole goal of being as salacious and sensational as possible to draw viewers. “As part of that, it has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don in 1997. The series presents this without any regard for the truth or in most cases even giving me an opportunity before publication to rebut the absurd claims. They did not care about truth. The unsavory lies are better for getting viewers.”The interview will be aired as part of TMZ Investigates Tiger King: What Really Went Down? at 9 p.m. Monday on Fox.
