Travel Channel Pulls Adam Richman’s “Man Finds Food” After #Thinspiration Rant

  • Adam Richman from the shows “Man vs. Food” and “Man Finds Food” made abusive comments an Instagram thread last week after some of his followers objected the use of the tag #thinspiration on a post about his weight loss. Fat activist Amber Sarah and others pointed out that #thinspiration is used by the pro-eating disorders community. The Travel Channel  said “Man Finds Food” is now “postponed indefinitely” due to Richman’s responses, like “grab a razor blade and draw a bath” and “eat a bag of shit.” (He has since deleted all photos from his Instagram account.)
