One of the many wild storylines from the Netflix documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is the 1997 disappearance of Jack “Don” Lewis, the former husband of Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin. Many people in the documentary — especially the star, Joe “Exotic” Maldonado-Passage– believe that Baskin killed Lewis, and many viewers have reached the same conclusion after seeing the documentary (Hillsborough County police are even seeking leads to help solve the case).
One of those viewers is O.J. Simpson, who many would consider an expert on the subject of getting away with murder.
The Juice weighed in on Tiger King with a Twitter video on Wednesday, and said, “There’s not a shred of doubt in my mind that that lady’s husband is tiger sashimi right now. I’m just sayin’.”

“Listen, I’ve had so many people on my case asking me to watch some show called ‘Tiger King.’ Well, yesterday, I watched this show. And, oh my god, is America in this bad of shape? I watched about six episodes of this show, and I couldn’t even believe what I was looking at. White people… what’s with you and wild animals?! Leave them animals alone! This show is crazy. But it’s so crazy, you kinda keep watching. One thing I will say: there’s not a shred of doubt in my mind that that lady’s husband is tiger sashimi right now. I’m just sayin’.”
There’s not a shred of doubt in my mind that that lady’s husband is tiger sashimi right now…I’m just saying.”
On Tuesday, Baskin published a lengthy post refuting many suggestions from the documentary, and denying that she murdered Lewis and fed him to the tigers.
