The Shrimp and the Fish

This is a little disturbing, right?

A tipster (who we’ve met and are acquainted with but who wanted to remain anonymous) sent a note saying, “Ben Freed caught a fish this weekend and killed it with his hands.”

Freed, a longstanding member of the FishbowlDC Fan Club Board, was fired as Editor-in-Chief of DCist last week after defying his boss’s direct orders to not publish a freelance piece in BuzzFeed. According to the tipster, he’s also apparently been spending his free time throwing around frisbee and “throwing bags” — whatever that is.

Just stay off your bike, Freed. We don’t want to hear about any more potential head injuries. And leave the fishes alone! What have they ever done to you?
