Michael Phelps Didn’t Really Race a Shark. And The Internet Is Angry.
The Discovery Channel and Michael Phelps played us all when they said he'd be racing a great white shark last night. While no one ever said he'd be racing a real shark, the commercials kind of made it seem that way.
Kicking off Shark Week, The Discovery Channel calls it smart marketing. However, some people on the internet called it something else entirely! Needless to say...some folks weren't too happy and didn't have a problem going to Twitter to let them know.
