One can imagine that hosting a show in which the main premise is that you binge-eat around the nation is probably not the healthiest lifestyle. So Man vs. Food‘s Adam Richman has been pretty proud of his weight loss of 60 lbs. or so since filming the last season. He then went around tagging photos “#thinspiration,” which some folks criticized is rallying cry of the anorexic.
Ok. Dicey stuff here.
Adam, who didn’t want his efforts diminished, took to firing back at his social media critics, calling them “cunts,” saying their dad should have “worn a condom,” and, my favorite, “”Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you.”
So basically, he acted like every other person on the Internet.
But famous people can’t act like Internet assholes, so the Travel Channel has postponed his new show with no explanation given, and Richman has issued an apology, saying, “I’ve long struggled with my body image and have worked very hard to achieve a healthy weight. I’m incredibly sorry to everyone I’ve hurt.”
Yup. The that’s the Internet, all right.
