Travel Channel's upcoming new series "Man Finds Food" starring Adam Richman has been pulled from its schedule in wake of Richman's Instagram outburst, where he told one follower to commit suicide.
The series was supposed to debut July 2, but the channel suddenly announced it would be postponed with no details about a later date just days after Richman made headlines for his expletive-filled rant on Instagram.
Online commenters said using the term "thinspiration" "glorifies negative media self-imagery" claiming the term is very popular in pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia circles.
As more users fired back, Richman did too by telling one commenter to "Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."
Since the incident, Richman has apologized via Twitter, which has been deleted, saying: "Yes. 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."
A rep from Travel Channel told Variety that the show has been postponed, but did not say whether or not the decision was made due to Richman's recent controversy.
