Danielle Fishel's Husband Has The Internet After Him

The Internet giveth and the internet taketh away. In case you're not social media savvy, this week's weirdest story came courtesy of Jensen Karp, who just so happens to be the husband of actress Danielle Fishel, better known as Topanga from Boy Meets World. 

Karp, a comedian and podcaster, took to Twitter to share a shot of what he purported to be shrimp tails, allegedly discovered in a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. When the company responded claiming they were simply bundles of cinnamon flavoring, Karp fired back to accuse them of "gaslighting" him and clarified they were in fact cinnamon-coated shrimp tails. He subsequently discovered some string in the box, also. 

The story kept social media entertained all week, with Karp quickly becoming "Shrimp Guy" — a moniker that's doubly funny when applied to a guy with a nautical-sounding surname. The comedian was clearly loving the attention, giving an interview to the The New York Times during which Karp confirmed he was sending the offending cereal "to get tested" to ascertain whether he accidentally ate anything potentially harmful. However, much like the infamous Curvy Wife Guy, Karp was torn down just as quickly as he was built up, as accusations began flooding in of past bad behavior from the comedian and podcaster. 

The Shrimp Guy has become a Milkshake Duck

As the New York Post reports, Karp was called out by a variety of women including screenwriter Stephanie Mickus, who tweeted about a "surprise threesome" he had allegedly implored her to partake in before threatening that she, "would never work in this town again." She also shared, "The amount of women who DM'd me with stories today. Let alone the ones I have known about for years and talked to about our shared experiences." Actress Melissa Stetten, meanwhile, detailed how Karp was "a manipulative gaslighting narcissistic ex-boyfriend who once told me he was surprised I hadn't killed myself because my life was so worthless." Stetten also confirmed she'd received messages from other women. Elsewhere, fellow podcaster and comedian John Cullen claimed Karp stole the idea for his popular show from him, quipping he might claim to have found it "in a bag of Cheerios." 

As Vox explains, Shrimp Guy is the victim of what is known in internet parlance as "milkshake ducking." The term, popularized by beloved Twitter user @pixelatedboat, describes a viral celebrity who seems harmless but, almost immediately after being welcomed into the bosom of the public, is revealed to be somewhat problematic, if not incredibly problematic. "The whole internet loves Milkshake Duck, a lovely duck that drinks milkshakes!" the tweet began, only to reveal, "*5 seconds later* We regret to inform you the duck is racist." Karp has yet to respond to the accusations against him.
