Adam Richman's Man Finds Food Pulled From Travel Channel After Instagram Rant
Man Loses TV Show! It seems the Travel Channel didn't appreciate Adam Richman's recent Instagram rant. The 40-year-old former host of Man V. Food was set to start a new series, Man Finds Food, but the network pulled the program after news of Richman's graphic tirade broke.
Man Finds Food was supposed to follow the grub-loving host as he "crisscrosses the country on the ultimate quest to uncover unique, surprising, and delicious hidden food treasures," according to the Travel Channel.
The trouble began late last month when the foodie posted a weight loss photo to his Instagram account after shedding 70 pounds.
"Had ordered this suit from a Saville Row tailor over a year ago. Think I’m gonna need to take it in a little #thinspiration," he captioned the post.
A follower pointed out that "thinspiration" was a term among people with eating disorders, to which he responded, "DILLIGAF?" ("Does it look like I give a f--k?")
Others started commenting on the hashtag and Richman's cavalier response, which caused him to burst into a series of insults, attacking multiple followers.
"Oh eat a bag of sh--, dummy," he wrote. "No apology is coming. Only f--kup it seems was your dad's choice to go without a condom."
The most buzzed about response was his comment calling one writer the C-word and telling her to "grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."
Richman later issued a formal apology to ABC News, but it seems the Travel Channel is not able to look past the posts.
The network has pulled the show from its schedule and removed all traces of the program from its website.
