You know what they say about karma: it's a b*tch. But it teaches lessons that we can't forget. And karma was absolutely served to this ketchup-thief-turned-karma-believer. Have no idea what I'm talking about? You'd better ketchup with the rest of us! Keep on reading.
A London man ended up in big trouble after posting several awful Tweets about Muslims following the Brussels Attacks. His initial Tweet, where he describes "confronting" a Muslim woman was met with an appropriate amount of derision from other users who turned his phrase into a meme.

He clarified the incident with "The Telegraph" with an alternate version of events:
What everyone’s got wrong about this is I didn’t confront the woman,” he said. “I just said: ‘Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'”
“She was white, and British, wearing a hijab – and she told me it was nothing to do with her.
“I said ‘thank you for explaining that’ – and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways.”
Despite this alternate version of events, his Twitter stream has devolved into alternately spouting hateful things aimed at Muslims and retweeting stories about his "confrontation" Tweet.
But the story doesn't end there, he was arrested later for his hateful posts. The Telegraph gives details from a police spokesperson on the situation:
"A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue."
Martin Shkreli is famous for his love of hip hop, his Twitter and raising the price of life-saving anti-parasitic drug, Daraprim, from $13.50 to $750 per pill. Before his price gouging began at his current pharmaceutical company, Turing, he was the CEO of his own pharmaceutical company, Retrophin.
Now the poster boy for everything wrong in the healthcare industry has been arrested. Federal prosecuters are making a case against him involving securities fraud. A key part of his scheme involved using money from Retrophin to pay off a debt from his hedge fund that lost millions.
He's had ongoing problems with Retrophin since leaving/being ousted from the company. He has complained the company is trying to dodge paying him benefits that are due and, according to Bloomberg, Retrophin replaced him because they had "serious concerns about his conduct". Apparently they were right to be concerned.
His last tweet conversation is pretty ironic considering the circumstances:
He might have to learn to be humble in prison. At least he'll have something to occupy his time.
Josh Ostrovsky, a.k.a. "The Fat Jew," likes to steal jokes.
But one mysterious Twitter account might get the last laugh.
People know Fat Jew from his extremely popular Instagram account where he posts memes and Twitter jokes that he most certainly didn't write himself.
It got him in a lot of trouble with the Internet in August when people started noticing his blatant theft.
Fat Jew's book Money Pizza Respect came out this week. And someone had a great idea. Why not tweet images of every single page?
What comes around goes around, right?
When Martin Shkreli isn't busy jacking up the price of a life-saving cancer and AIDS drug by 5,000 percent or being an idiot on Twitter, the disgraced pharmaceutical CEO is neck deep in sweet Karma.
San Diego-based Imprimis Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced they will sell the same exact drug Shkreli's company Turing Pharmaceuticals does, but for only $1 a pill.
Shkreli charges $750 a pill.
"We are looking at all of these cases where the sole-source generic companies are jacking the price way up," Mark Baum, Chief Executive at Imprimis, told the AP.
"There'll be many more of these."
Meanwhile, Shkreli decided to start a spat with CNBC on Twitter.

Martin Shkreli, the poor man's Donald Trump.
You shouldn't rob anyone, but you definitely shouldn't rob someone who is a professional MMA fighter.
MMA strawweight Monique Bastos was on her way to the gym when two men attempted to steal her cell phone. Little did they know, she could very easily defend herself.
So just remember would-be robbers, tread lightly. You may just get ahold of someone like Bastos.
I guess you could call this Car-ma?
A woman in Kansas City drove a stolen SUV into a building last week while being chased by police.
Not only did she crash, but she also took most of the building down with her.
She survived the incident, and the building was vacant so no one else was hurt.
It's a wonderful thing to give what you can to the homeless. Jerome Jarre decided to give back to those with big hearts with a little bit of positive instant karma. Posing as a homeless man, as people walked by and gave him money, he would reveal his true identity, thanking them and rewarding them with a bouquet of flowers and a $100 bill!
