Former President Barack Obama’s deep state allies are still out there desperately trying to undermine President Trump.
They are currently in the federal government, mainstream media and especially Hollywood.
But now this top Obama ally – that does everything they can to aid in his deep state against President Trump – could face a serious legal battle with this massively popular movie.
Amid being stuck at home, one of the many things Americans have been doing is spending their time binging movies and televisions shows.
Netflix – the gigantic Hollywood streaming service who co-partnered with former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Higher Grounds Productions – released a new controversial documentary called “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.”
It focuses on an eccentric homosexual exotic cat owner named Joe Exotic who is caught in a murder-for-hire plot against an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, Carole Baskin, that has wanted to put him out of business for years.
The seven-part docuseries plays out like a mockumentary: the characters seem like caricatures, the twists and revelations are explosive, while mixing in drug kingpins, conmen and cult-like leaders who all have one passion in common – big cats. It’s the perfect example of truth being stranger than fiction.
The most obvious takeaway is that these people willfully accepted being a part of the documentary and yet are somehow angry at the way they were depicted. However, there is a lot of truth to the way Netflix subtly manipulates the viewers into the narrative they want you to believe.
The key characters of the docuseries called the finished product “salacious” and “outrageous.”
They are now bashing co-directors and writers Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin for allegedly sensationalizing the feud between Joe Exotic, Baskin. Bhagavan “Doc” Antle and Jeff Lowe separately clarified several details they believe the documentary exaggerated or simply got wrong about their story.
Antle, who runs Myrtle Beach Safari accused the directing duo of allegedly lying to him about the type of show he was participating in.
He clarified to TMX, “Remember, this is not a documentary. This is a salacious, outrageous ride through a television show produced to create drama, to just tie you into some crazy train wreck of a story between the feud of Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic, and the meltdown that ensued between two people who both are far too close to murder themselves, and I think a little bit of madness thrown in on their parts.”
Everyone involved thought the documentary was going to be a “wildlife conservation show” about “endangered species,” but either that was a bald-faced lie or it evolved into a “salacious” documentary.
A good example of this – in the first two episodes, Baskin is portrayed as an outspoken animal rights activist who we’ve come to side with against him. But then we discover that Baskin’s husband, Don Lewis, magically and conveniently disappeared in 1997, and was never to be found again.
Joe Exotic perpetuated a theory that she fed him to her big cats but there was never any evidence to suggest that.
But Baskin was reportedly furious with the insinuation by the filmmakers to paint her in this unfavorable light, even suggesting many times a tone of “How could she have not done it?”
Baskin wrote, “There are not words for how disappointing it is to see that the series…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.”
Whether she did allegedly murder her husband or not, is irrelevant to the truth as describing this production as sensationalism to draw in as many viewers as possible.
Netflix could potentially see major lawsuits in the coming weeks or months probably because they omitted pertinent information as Baskin suggests.
And Netflix can’t turn to their co-producing partner for help either.
