Two segments from “Ace Ventura 2” were allegedly utilized in “Tiger King” without proper approval.

Although it’s been over two years since we first met the fascinating characters of Netflix’s internet-breaking docu-series Tiger King, the show continues to create news.

Although the new episodes didn’t deliver much positive news in the story of Joe Exotic and our other favorites, the second season premiered just over a month ago.

Erik Cowie, who died in September due to acute and chronic alcohol consumption, and Jeff Johnson, who reportedly committed suicide, were two of the zookeepers that appeared on the show in recent months.

More bad news has arrived, according to Complex, as the show’s producers and Netflix have been sued for copyright violation.

Tiger King copied two clips from Ace Ventura 2 “without permission or license,” according to Morgan Creek Productions’ lawsuit.

According to the docs, “At the same moment that the Infringing Clips appear on-screen, a dubbed-over voice names one such movie as Ace Ventura, leaving little mistake about the source. Plaintiff has been informed and thinks, and thus alleges, that Ace Ventura is the only film in which more than one clip appears in Tiger King.”

One clip in the docuseries shows Jim Carrey “triumphantly riding an elephant,” while another shows the Canadian with a baby monkey wrapped around his upper body. Morgan Creek has requested damages in the lawsuit.

Carole Baskin has been battling online with those who believe her missing husband, Don Lewis, is still alive, in other Tiger King news.
