The Internet is playing the world’s tiniest violin for MTV’s Nev Schulman, who is saying that the stress of being accused of "making inappropriate and sexual comments" has given him a case of the shingles.
On Josh Peck’s podcast Curious, Schulman said: "I was so stressed and I was so out of control and desperately trying to get it into my control that I actually got shingles. Most people get it around their chest or ribs. I got it on my head."
He went on: "It’s been a really meaningful, eye-opening, emotional and physical experience."
A subject of Schulman’s docuseries Catfish accused him of misconduct. MTV conducted an internal investigation that cleared Schulman of wrongdoing.
