Baskin, who appeared in Netflix’s hugely popular docuserie “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness”, officially sells cat-themed masks.
They are available in two styles: one black and one in leopard print, but both have a cat mustachioed smile and Baskin’s slogan: “Hello to all you fantastic kittens and cats”.
The masks, available on tread365.com, it costs $ 11 each. Part of the proceeds will go to support the big cats, of course, but also the first responders, based on the product description.
Big Cat Rescue, Baskin’s animal sanctuary in Tampa, Florida, has been closed to the public because of the pandemic. But that didn’t stop her from providing daily updates to her fans on the sanctuary’s Facebook page and rejecting some of the dramas.
“There are no words about how disappointing it is to see that the series … had the sole goal of being as healthy and sensational as possible to attract viewers,” Baskin wrote in a blog post titled “Netflix Tiger King Refuting”.
With 64 million member families worldwide viewing “Tiger King,” according to Netflix, the creators of Etsy and other online retailers have tapped into the trend by selling masks that feature Exotic Joe and the iconic smile of her ex-husband, John Finlay.
Now, fans can get one produced by one of the show’s subjects.
