Carole Baskin sues Netflix to stop footage of her and her non-profit in Tiger King 2

 

Carole Baskin had filed a lawsuit against Netflix for featuring her in teasers as well as in Tiger King 2 series. She has filed the suit against both the producers of the super hit Tiger King as well as the streaming platform Netflix. The 60-year reality star claimed that it was a breach of her original contract.

According to TMZ, who has seen the lawsuit, CB is declaring that the contract she signed for the earlier mega hit series did not give them the right to use the series footage for other projects including the sequel. She wants a judge to stop footage of her and her non-profit Big Cat Rescue in trailers as well as in the series. She said that the new footage released by the producers and Netflix was not “new” at all.

CB has also said that the original series undermined her mission which was to focus on the big cats and to protect them from the likes of Joe Exotic and others. Although Joe Exotic has been imprisoned and the tigers and other exotics pets were released to her safe custody, the docuseries also dwelt inordinately on the disappearance of her husband Don King, who was later declared dead.

According to a report by Deadline, a federal judge in Florida has denied her request. She will not get a temporary restraining order against them. However, the judge ruled that the motion to seek a preliminary injunction had been referred to the Honorable Thomas G. Wilson, United States Magistrate Judge. The judge would conduct an evidentiary hearing and would issue a “Report and Recommendation.”

It looks like the sequel of Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness will be dropped on November 17. However, it is also clear that Netflix will have to answer to the charges laid by Carol Baskin in court later if not sooner.

Several news outlets contacted Netflix who has not responded to any of the them till the time this article was published.
