In court documents filed in federal court on Monday and obtained by PEOPLE, Carole and her husband Howard state that they declined to be involved with タイガーキング 2 when approached by the streamer and production company Royal Goode Productions.
苦情によると, the couple was contacted by producers Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin to “clear the air” それにかんする Carole’s distaste for the first installment of the documentary and secure her participation in the sequel.
“Carole Baskin’s response was clear and unequivocal: '番号. And lose my number,’ ” the complaint reads.
Despite their refusal to take part in タイガーキング 2, a trailer for the upcoming sequel released in October “prominently depicts Baskin as a central element of the sequel” using footage that was captured during filming for the first タイガーキング ドキュメンタリーシリーズ, 苦情は述べています.
The use of that footage for anything other than the initial documentary violates the release forms that the Baskins signed prior to filming, 文書によると.
Carole and Howard are suing Netflix and Royal Goode Productions because the companies “do not have the right to use any video or audio taken of us during their filming for タイガーキング, 殺人, Mayhem and Madness,” Howard wrote in a statement to PEOPLE on Monday.
“We believe that [タイガーキング 1] showed Goode and Chaiklin to be devoid of ethics, integrity, and any concern for the welfare of big cats,” 彼は続けた, 追加する: “We made it very clear to Goode and Chaiklin that we had no desire or intent to be involved in [タイガーキング 2].”
Howard said he and Carole were “ショックを受けた” to see the footage used in the タイガーキング 2 trailer released last month.
“While we cannot stop Netflix and Royal Goode Productions from producing low-brow, salacious and sensational programing, we do believe that we have the right to control footage filmed of us under false pretenses,” 声明は結論を下した. “We like to believe that most Americans will agree that we should be entitled to protect our reputations in this manner and hold entertainment giants to their word.”
人々が到達したとき, a spokesperson for Netflix had no comment.

“I don’t know how they put out a タイガーキング 2 when Joe Schreibvogel’s [aka Joe Exotic] in jail and I’m refusing to be played again,” 彼女は言いました. “Rebecca Chaiklin said she wanted to ‘clear the air’ about what they did to me in タイガーキング. I told her to lose my number. There is no explanation for such a betrayal and false portrayal.”
