Travel Channel Postpones Adam Richman's MAN FINDS FOOD in Wake of Suicide Taunt

TMZ reports that Travel Channel has postponed the premiere of Adam Richman's new show MAN FINDS FOOD, following his recent Instagram post in which he used the term "thinspiration" and encouraged an overweight person to commit suicide.

Richman, who himself recently lost 70 lbs. initially denied that he realized the term was associated with people suffering eating disorders. He responded negatively to one critic commenting, "Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."

This morning, Richman released an apology to ABC's "Good Morning America" 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."

Surprisingly, the NBC network announced it will move forward with another Richman show "Food Fighters" set to air later this month.

Travel Channel would not confirm that schedule change was related to the incident. In a statement, a spokesperson for the network said, "Travel Channel is postponing the July 2 series premiere of 'Man Finds Food."

For now, "American Grilled," which challenges grilling enthusiasts to compete for a $10,000 cash prize, will air in its place at on Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
