Carole Baskin Is Making Thousands on Cameo

Hey, all you cool cats and kittens, Carole Baskin is now on Cameo and raking in the dough.In an introductory video, the big cat savior says she’s “happy to record any kind of greeting for a birthday or anniversary or any kind of encouraging message to the animal lover in your life” while wearing her signature flower crown, charging a steep $199 a pop. The Netflix star’s bio on the platform reads, “You know me as ‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic’s intended murder victim but my real life’s work has been at Big Cat Rescue for a world where all wild cats live free.”According to The Sun, Baskin made roughly $20,000 on her first day after signing up for Cameo, and she told TMZ on Tuesday that she’s since fielded more than 600 requests, meaning she could have made well over $100,000. Although, she says she turned down all the requests related to videos about her missing husband.“I decline their requests to say things that would make fun of my husband’s disappearance,” she says, “because that was such a tragic time in my life and in that of those who loved him.” Baskin adds that she doesn’t believe those requests are coming from a bad place, but talking about the active cold case is still a “sore subject” for her.Baskin’s former husband Jack “Don” Lewis disappeared under suspicious circumstances on August 18, 1997, and was declared legally dead five years later, although he was never been found. During a TMZ Tiger King special, the sheriff in charge of the case, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister, said that although he’s “suspicious” of Baskin, she is not an official suspect at this time.More Great Stories From Vanity Fair— Author Uzodinma Iweala on White Signs at Black Protests— “George Floyd Was Killed in My Neighborhood”— 15 Years After Katrina, a Second Storm—Coronavirus—Hits New Orleans— How Meghan Markle Decided to Finally Speak Out About George Floyd— Nikkita Oliver on Seattle’s Extraordinary Protests and What Comes Next— Where J.K.
