After Online 'Suicide' Taunt

Adam Richman New Show

Adam Richman
's new show on the Travel Channel just got yanked in the wake of his rant over the term "thinspiration" ... the one where he encouraged a hater to commit suicide.

The cable channel just announced it's postponing the premiere of Richman's "Man Finds Food" -- but hasn't said exactly when it will air ... leading many to believe it could be done for good.

Richman -- who recently lost 70 lbs. -- came under fire for posting an Instagram pic with "#thinspiration.' Online trolls jumped on him for using the term -- claiming it's only associated with people suffering eating disorders.

Adam responded to one critic with ... "Grab a razor blade and draw a bath.  I doubt anyone will miss you." 

Travel Channel didn't specifically say the suicide taunt was behind the postponement. 

Richman apologized this morning, 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.”

NBC also announced it WILL go forward with another Richman show -- "Food Fighters" -- later this month.

I have never liked his show, but don't think his new one should be cancelled. He got caught up in the moment while defending himself . He lost a lot of weight, was proud of it, tried to be an inspiration for others, and instead some idiots attacked his comments wrongfully. People with eating disorders don't own the term "thinspiration". I think his use was much more appropriate and reasonable. His response wasn't the greatest, but when you are attacked for being positive, a response is definitely warranted. If he had just said FU, which is basically what he did in other words, all would be forgotten now. Give him a break, let him do his job, and get on with life.

Truth    

So, if you lose weight, you can't be proud that you lost weight. Because, everyone hasn't lost weight. This is what political correctness has done to this country.

Well, I wouldn't put anything past him. In the beginning of Travel Network shows AR did, I enjoyed watching. Little by little he became to big for his britches ..... ego tripping, a snob. Good that he was pink-slipped. We don't care for this individual any longer. Not a nice male.

These guys insulting Adam probably have bigger weight issues themselves and don't have the will to shake it off like he did.Shame on them.

whiny fat asses need to shut up with the whole "anyone who says the simple fact that thin is better and healthier than fat is pushing anorexia" -- fatties should step away from the computer and go for a walk.

All TV shows exist because of sponsors. When you offend the folks who pay the bills and salaries you are sealing your fate. Ask Paula Deen.
