If you're on Instagram you probably know (and shamefully laugh at) The Fat Jewish account. It's okay, I do too.
He has become so Instagram famous that he signed a modeling contract (???), received his own line of rose wine and most recently signed with Comedy Central to develop a show.
But there's one huge problem here: his jokes are stolen.
The Fat Jewish is simply a re-post account. Sure, he gives credit to the original creator, but there's no originality in what he does. The comedy industry HATES this, as they should. A bunch of funny people working hard to create original comedy get ignored and a re-posting Instagrammer snags a comedy pilot? That just feels wrong.
These famous funny people are fighting back, calling out The Fat Jewish for stealing work, and criticizing Comedy Central for rewarding it.
Turns out, Comedy Central actually listens to those funny people above. Today it was announced that they cancelled plans to create a show with The Fat Jewish.
I don't feel too bad for him, I'm sure he'll make plenty of money of his rose line. Also, here's a pic of him on a plane he chartered to the Hamptons, so he seems to be doing just fine for himself.
