Someone who gains sudden fame for something nice and positive, only to soon after be revealed as a deeply flawed character with terrible opinions and/or a shady past, often involving corrosive social/political ideologies, which quickly tarnishes their fame and the good will people momentarily had towards them.

Milkshake Duck means when something seems to be positive but turns out to be very negative.
Keaton James got a lot of attention of a video telling people what “bullies” did to him. When the video got reposted by many celebrities for example : Rihanna , Chris brown and many more. It turned out he called kids in his class ‘n***ER’ and that was the result , him getting “bullied”

A forced meme created in response to a video game developer who gained recognition for a very impressive looking independently created game, only for it to be found later that he was an Egalitarian who supported the existence of bisexuals instead of a SJW "Feminist" who openly hates men. His success was derailed by outraged independent "video game" developers who were jealous of his newfound fame who promptly dug through 8 years of social media posts (and posted some that were photoshopped) to claim he was Literally Hitler.

Not widely used, but often repeated as an attempt to force it's popularity, in part because it presumes the guilt of the person targeted by the name.

Refers to the act of doing opposition research towards a person who is newly successful or famous, finding something in their past (often in their social media accounts) that can be misconstrued as offensive or non-politically correct, and then directing an outrage mob towards them.
"Bob saved those kittens from the tree, and that's cool, but I found he once posted a picture of Elmer Fudd in a dress making fun of someone. That's transphobic! Gotcha, you Milkshake Duck! Quick, everyone, be outraged!"
