Josh Ostrovsky a.k.a "The Fat Jew" may not have much to say about someone on Twitter uploading his entire upcoming humor book, "Money Pizza Respect," to the Internet. After all, his meteoric rise to fame on Instragram has been dogged by accusations that he plagiarized the jokes he posted.

According to online magazine deathandtaxes, the anonymous person using the Twitter handle @updog7 started uploading the book over the course of several hours on Thursday. He also created a PDF version. The user topped off the feat by declaring, "hey there, I wrote a book."
The Fat Jew did not get too much sympathy about any potentially lost revenue. One user, Sue Generis, commented on Ostrovsky's Twitter feed, "the fat jew’s entire book was uploaded to twitter, which will def help him bridge the gap between LOL + plagiarism."

Ostrovsky has built his audience of 6.5 million followers by posting irreverent and often raunchy visual jokes. His popularity has led to several endorsements, with companies like Bud Light, Virgin Mobile and Burger King paying up to $6,000 to appear in one of his memes.
