We all know Adam Richman as the guy from the food shows who can eat just about anything … Read all about Richman and why he’s currently making headlines …
1. Harsh Instagram Comments Have Forced the Travel Channel to Cancel His Latest New Show
Adam Richman posted a photo of himself on Instagram and unknowingly used a pro-eating disorder hashtag “Thinspiration” along with it. When fans and followers made him aware of this, he became angry and lashed out with the above comments. Since his outbursts, Richman has posted apologies and his Instagram photos are now private.
As a result of Richman’s harsh comments online, the Travel Channel has pulled the plug on his show Man Finds Food, which was supposed to premiere this week. On Richman’s Instagram page, his byline reads:
I make fun TV, I eat great food, I write swell books, I make sweet love, I give great hugs, I take no crap, I love my life, my fans, and my Mom.
Perhaps he’ll rethink the “I take no crap part.”
Richman has such a huge fan-base, so many are hoping he can overcome this horrible incident and learn from it to move forward.
