The Travel Channel has pulled the plug on Adam Richman’s new series, “Man Finds Food,” after the TV host’s rant on Instagram over a picture related to his recent weight loss.
It did not offer a new premiere date. But the “Man vs. Food” host posted this encouraging remark on Facebook: “Still waiting for a airing date for the show. “Stay tune (sic) MFF fans!”
Last month, Richman drew outrage after he wrote a string of expletives on Instagram in response to fans criticizing his use of the hashtag #thinspiration-- which is often associated with anorexia and pro-eating disorder messages.
Richman posted a picture of himself after losing 70-pounds used for the latest issue of Cosmopolitan U.K. “Had ordered this suit from a Saville Row tailor over a year ago. Think I'm gonna need to take it in a little…#thinspiration” he wrote.
People noticed the term and called him out for using it. Richman answered with a string of angry, expletive-laced responses--and even told one person to "[g]rab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."
He eventually apologized via Twitter and deleted all of his Instagram messages related to the incident.
In a statement to ABC News, Richman said he is sorry for his "inexcusable remarks."
"I've long struggled with my body image and have worked very hard to achieve a healthy weight," Richman said.
