Add Carole Baskin to the list of people being sued for defamation of character. Earlier today we reported that Cardi B and her sister Hennessy were both sued for defamation. Carole Baskin is now amongst the sued.
The family of Carole’s missing husband is upset about her joking remarks made on DWTS. Don’s daughters Gale, Lynda, and Donna, plus his former assistant, Anne McQueen is suing Carole for defamation, and they say Don’s disappearance is no laughing matter.
According to court records, Carole is being accused of being comfortable with jokes about Don’s death on “Dancing with the Stars,” when judges brought up TikTok videos inspired by her storyline in ‘Tiger King.’
TikTok users created their version of the “Savage” challenge by changing the words to the song.
“Carole Baskin killed her husband, whacked him. Can’t convince me that it didn’t happen. Fed him to tigers, they snackin’. What’s happening?”
Dole’s assistant felt that Carole should have spoken out against the tasteless jokes. The judge on DWTS said:
“didn’t quite kill the paso double, it was kind of sedated.”
The family is also calling her out for saying she would “really kill it next week” in her Good Morning America interview. They feel as if she is making jokes about Don’s disappearance.
Carole continues to maintain her innocence in his case.
