What Did Adam Richman Do On Instagram To Get His New Series Pulled?

Former ‘Man v. Food’ host Adam Richman has recently shed over 70lbs of weight, an accomplishment which is certainly worth celebrating. But when the television star tried to share his joy on Instagram things took a nasty turn pretty quickly, leading to Richman’s latest Travel Channel series being postponed indefinitely.

It all started when Richman decided to show off his new look on Instagram, posting a picture of himself in a suit with caption, "Had ordered this suit from a Saville Row tailor over a year ago. Think I'm gonna need to take it in a little …” Nothing controversial there, expect that Richman decided to finish the caption with the hashtag #thinspiration, a term often used on websites promoting eating disorders.

One user decided to call Richman out for his use of the hashtag, saying that it "glorifies negative media self-imagery that being thin is better as opposed to any other body style”. Richman decided to reply with a simple, “DILLIGAF”. Translation, he supposedly really, really doesn’t care about what anyone thinks. However the presenter continued to respond to those who had questioned his hashtag, eventually unleashing a torrent of abuse on his critics.

"Oh eat a bag of shit, dummy. No apology is coming. If it inspires someone to attain a healthy thinner body then that was what it was meant to do. Only fuckup it seems was your dad's choice to go without a condom,” he told one user. While to another he said, "grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you.”

An apology did eventually come from Richman, which read, "I've responded to internet hate recently with vile words directed at those hating me. I am sorry, I should know better & will do better.” However his Instagram account has since become private.

Now, presumably thanks to the controversy, the Travel Channel has decided to postpone the airing of his new show, 'Man Finds Food'. The channel has not gone public on the reason behind the decision, simply releasing a statement saying "Travel Channel is postponing the July 2 series premiere of Man Finds Food.” Since the announcement was made, Richman has also released a statement to ABC news, where he apologised for his "inexcusable remarks.” Adding that he was "incredibly sorry to everyone I've hurt.”

Adam RichmanThere's no word yet on when 'Man Finds Food' will air

 There's no word yet on when or if Richman's latest series will air. But the presenter is one of the channel's most popular stars thanks to the 'Man v. Food' series. For now it looks as if Richman is just staying off Instagram and hoping the whole thing will eventually blow over, so he can go back to doing what he does best, eating a lot of food for our viewing pleasure.
