The Travel Channel TLC has pulled new-show Man Finds Foods just one day before it was set to air, following host Adam Richman’s hateful online fight.
Adam Richman’s new show Man Finds Food was set to debut July 2 on Travel Channel, but the network pulled it from its line-up the day before
The controversy started early last month when Richman posted the picture of his recent weight loss with the hastag ‘thinspiration’
“Thinspiration” is a term used to describe online posts which encourage eating disorders, and have been banned on sites like Facebook and Yahoo.
Richman seemed unaware of the term’s significance when he included it in the caption of a photo showing his dramatic weight loss earlier last month.
So when Instagram users started criticizing him, Richman got defensive and shot back with profanity – in one case going so far as to tell one user to commit suicide. He didn’t even bothered to listen those who tried to explain the actual meaning of “Thinspiration”
The former Man V Food host was caught calling one critic a ‘c***’ and telling another to ‘eat a bag of s***’, after they condemned his use of the controversial term ‘thinspiration’ in an Instagram post.
