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.

Not like he is wrong. So it's okay for people to troll him and say the same things but when he retaliates it's wrong? Give me a break and stop being so sensitive.

While I think the trolls were in the wrong, his taunt did go way too far. People have to take a deep breath before posting nastiness to their social media. It will give them a chance to not post and avoid embarrassing themselves.

This show had high ratings...THAT is the real story....The story of how dull, fat and lazy Americans can be so easily amused - AND of course, watching Dude shovel comfort food down his gullet ONLY gives that dull-minded American the excuse to follow -

Fat sells....or fat cells....take your pick.

Okay...how many episodes of a guy shoveling....I say again....shoveling comfort food down his gullet does it take to get a little stale? The dull, fat, lazy Americans can watch 1000 shows and never grow bored (or motivated).

1000 crab pots being pulled over the side of a crab boat....lather- rinse- repeat....Except this provides empty calorie and salty fat reward...The viewer will no doubt - watch this show while eating chili-cheese fries and banana cream pie.

If you're depressed by this show getting cancelled...I say STFU and walk it off.!

People were trying to Convey to Adam his #tag was Wrong and disrespectful, and instead of going on Google, and get information about it, he decided to go off and tell a Woman to Take a bath with a Razor Blade, and No One would Miss Her. He Deserved to Lose his Show, and the Network did the Right thing.

"I’ve long struggled with my body image and have worked very hard to achieve a healthy weight." Yeah, so, I guess when you did "Man V.S. Food" you where whoring yourself then? Oh, you dirty girl!
