Adam Richman's new 'Man Finds Food' postponed by Travel Channel after controversial online behavior
UPI News Service, 07/01/2014
The Travel Channel has postponed its July 2 premiere of Adam Richman's new show, "Man Finds Food," citing a "scheduling change."
But industry observers believe the decision might have something to do with the former "Man vs. Food" host's social media controversy earlier this month.
Richman set off a firestorm of criticism when he used the hashtag "#thinspiration," a term often used in pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia communities, to caption a photo featuring his 70-pound weight loss.
"Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you," he told one commenter.
Richman apologized Tuesday for his remarks.
"I've long struggled with my body image and have worked very hard to achieve a healthy weight," Richman told ABC News.
