During a call, she said that she knew Tiger King directors Rebecca Chaiklin and Eric Goode were filming more, but she didn’t expect it to be finished so soon.

“I know some people who have been involved in it and they were doing more filming, so I assumed at some point they would come out with a Tiger King 2. It took them five years to put together the first one, so I thought it would be a lot longer,” she said.

She also said despite trying to “clear the air,” she told the directors to “lose my number because that was not at all what we had agreed we were working on. I wouldn’t call Eric Goode or Rebecca Chaiklin true documentarians. I mean that was just a reality show dumpster fire,” she went on to say.

“My phone started ringing off the hook for three months straight, people cursing at me and telling me that they wanted to burn the place to the ground and they wanted to kill me and my family and the cats. So whatever Tiger King 2 does, I’ll have that same reaction from the public that has been misled. I’ll have to spend a lot of time explaining to them how they have been misled, which means I have to watch it,” she continued.

“I think there’s a Mark Twain quote about a lie making its way around the world faster than the truth can get its pants on, and that’s true because people just love a good lie.”

Instead, she suggests watching The Conservation Game.

“If people want to know the actual truth behind the big cat crisis in the U.S. and how it all started, they should be demanding to see The Conservation Game film by Michael Webber. His film answers the important questions that Tiger King glossed over.”
