Doc Antle From "Tiger King" Is The Tiger Handler In Britney Spears' Iconic 2001 VMAs Performance https://t.co/eWxdJmfeld— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) March 30, 2020
The twists just keep on coming! Who would have thought that Britney Spears and Netflix’s latest viral hit “Tiger King” would share a connection. It appears that the Tiger handler on stage with Miss American Dream was Bhagavan “Doc” Antle himself from Tiger King. As you know, Spears had a real tiger on stage with her during her iconic 2001 VMA performance for “I’m a Slave 4 U.” But it’s clear that Banana the snake stole the entire show and grabbed most of the headlines. People online made the connection and some even think Carole Baskin was sitting next to Spears in the audience. However some are contesting whether the second picture is actually Baskin. What do you think?
