'Tiger King' star Carole Baskin rips NFL for allowing fans at Super Bowl LV


Carole Baskin’s 15 minutes of fame are still not up.

The “Tiger King” star now has a new enemy in her crosshairs, and that is NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Baskin, a Tampa native, sounded off on the NFL for allowing a limited number of fans at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. for Super Bowl LV on Sunday.

“We are right now dealing with life or death on this planet,” she told USA Today. “And I think every one of us should be doing our part in staying home.”

The NFL is allowing 22,500 fans to attend the Super Bowl, which include 7,500 tickets distributed to frontline healthcare workers, all of whom have been vaccinated.

The league is also putting in safeguards, such as requiring masks, social distancing and podded seating.

Yet, Baskin is adamantly opposed to allowing any fans in the stadium.

“I just think it’s irresponsible to be gathering in large groups, even though I understand they’re saying this is a much smaller group than they’ve ever had,” she said. “But it doesn’t matter that it’s a smaller group. It’s way more people than should be exposed to each other for the purpose of watching a game.”
