Baskin

Baskin drew public attention when she was featured in the 2020 Netflix true crime documentary series Tiger King, which follows Baskin's escalating feud with Oklahoma-based private zoo owner Joe Exotic. Following the release of the series, Baskin received abuse online due to the third episode of the series speculating that Baskin was involved in the disappearance of Don Lewis, her second husband. Baskin refuted these claims in a post on Big Cat Rescue's website. Her catchphrase, "Hey all you cool cats and kittens!" also became a meme as a result of Tiger King.

In September 2020, during the broadcast of Baskin's appearances in Dancing with the Stars in select Florida television markets, including Tampa, Lewis's family and their attorney ran a commercial spot asking for anyone with information on his disappearance to come forward and offered a US$100,000 reward. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)At the age of 17, Baskin worked at a Tampa, Florida, department store. To make money, she began breeding show cats (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

The third episode of the series caused viewers to suspect that Baskin murdered Don Lewis by feeding him to the tigers. Several of the zookeepers featured in the documentary, including Exotic (who had previously made a diss-track referencing Lewis's disappearance in 2015) and Tabraue, believe that she was responsible for his disappearance. After Tiger King was released, Baskin was cyberbullied over her speculated involvement in Lewis's disappearance via Internet memes,

Baskin has never been charged with anything related to Don's disappearance and has always denied having anything to do with it. To defend his wife, Howard released a message on the DailyBigCat YouTube channel, stating that the claims about her being involved in Lewis's disappearance are nonsense and that Goode and Chaiklin "did not care about the animals or the truth".

In February 2021, Baskin revealed that she had been asked to feature in a planned second season of the show, but she refused and told the producers to "lose her number".
