(Spoilers, obviously.) If there’s one thing we’ve become obsessed with during lockdown, it’s The Tiger King, Netflix’s new documentary. The show documents the rivalry between Joe Exotic{ =nofollow}, a zoo owner, and Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue - which eventually sees Joe imprisoned for 22 years after being found guilty for a murder-for-hire plot and illegally euthanising tigers.

Like us, Gwyneth Paltrow has binged the show - but she has some opinions about Carole, who Joe insists killed her husband, Don Lewis, who disappeared 23 years ago.

On Tuesday, Gwyneth responded to a post by Sara F Carter, which read: 'Absolutely iconic Carole Baskin did Tiger King thinking she'd get to expose Joe Exotic and Doc Antle for animal abuse and now all of America is obsessed with Joe and thinks Carole is a murderer. That's showbiz baby!' Gwyneth penned underneath: 'There can be no other explanation.'

In the series, Carole has denied all of Joe’s accusations, saying Don either fled to Costa Rica, or he thrown off a plane over the Gulf Of Mexico. Joe even claimed that Carole fed her husband to the tigers, creating a music video called Here Kitty Kitty in which a Carole lookalike was seen feeding ‘human meat’ to the tigers. In a new blog post, Carole has since slammed the Netflix show, calling it 'salacious and sensational' and continued to maintain her innocence.
