The boy knows … shrimp?
The husband of the “Boy Meets World” actress, Danielle Fishel Karp, who played Topanga in the 1990s sitcom, went viral Monday with allegations of a very unpleasant discovery in her breakfast cereal.
Now the Internet is what’s more exploding with additional reactions thanks to his famous wife and Jensen Karp is playing on The Post. (By the way: Page Six covered their nuptials in 2018).
Let’s go back to the extra crunch that Topanga’s real-life husband claims to have found in his Cinnamon Toast Crunch:
“Ummmm @CTCSquares – Why are there shrimp tails on my cereal? (This is not a bit) ” tweeted Jensen, tagging the official Cinnamon Toast Crunch Twitter account and posting an image of what appear to be sugar-coated shrimp tails in a now-viral tweet. in a follow-up tweetJensen spoke to General Mills, the producer of the popular breakfast cereal.
“We are sorry to see what you found! We would like to report this to our quality team and replace the box. Can you DM us to gather more details? Thank you! “Crispy Cinnamon Toast He wrote back, to which Jensen answered that he “I’m not sure he’s ready for another box!”
Turns out, Topanga wasn’t feeling the brand’s initial tweet.
“She is honestly angry,” Karp told The Post about Danielle’s current feeling regarding the situation. “She is really disappointed in General Mills’ statement and expected to see more concern, rather than just telling me that it was actually sugar, not shrimp tails (which is crazy). People are allergic (thankfully I am not) and your main goal should be to find out how it happened to help anyone who may also encounter this. “
Upon “further investigation”, Cinnamon Toast Crunch informed Jensen that the image he posted did not show shrimp tails but “a buildup of cinnamon sugar that can sometimes occur when ingredients are not well mixed. We assure you that there is no possibility of cross contamination with shrimp ”.
However, after further investigation, Jensen alleged that there really were “cinnamon covered shrimp tails” in his cereal, which he said there were already eaten a bowl. Since then apparently has covered the cereal box with Post-It notes, warning: “DO NOT EAT.”
“Before I had the shrimp tail in the bowl, I had eaten a bowl. This is a bummer, ”Karp told The Post.
“Wasn’t I so mad until now you tried to turn me on?” accused the brand.
He went on to say that when he further explored the bag of cereal, he allegedly found rope, as well as cereal squares containing black marks. Another bag in the family pack, which the couple supposedly bought in Woodland Hills, LA, Costco – seemed to be “taped” and looked contain dental floss.
“I’m going to have them try the black stuff today,” Jensen wrote Tuesday morning for those who continue their inedible getaway. “Most importantly, nothing new from General Mills as they asked me to send them the shrimp tails that they had tried to convince me was sugar.”
In a statement to The Post, a representative for General Mills said the company is still investigating the incident.
“While we are still investigating this matter, we can confidently say that this did not occur at our facility,” spokesman Mike Siemienas said in a statement. “We are waiting for the consumer to send us the package for further investigation. Any consumer who notices that their cereal box or bag has been tampered with, such as the clear tape found in this case, should contact us. ”
In the most recent update to the series on Tuesday afternoon, Jensen shared an apparent direct message conversation with Cinnamon Toast Crunch in which the brand reportedly said they “reached out” over the phone and left a voicemail and also wanted to “set up” a pickup of the items by FedEx. In his response, he said that he “won’t give you things,” adding that his initial response “calling it sugar was very weird and the fact that you didn’t say anything to the contrary doesn’t allow me to trust you with that at all.
Jensen went on to say that the company was “being very superficial and strange” and said they should email him “for any further correspondence.”
He also previously responded on Twitter to those who accused him of counterfeiting foreign object cereal items.
“Something about the stupid take on ‘Did you fake this?’: There are black items COOKED IN the squares and tons at the bottom of the bag, plus shrimp tails and other SUGAR COATED junk. Also, it is only ‘viral’ due to its crazy response. I would have dropped it “, wrote.
