Adam Richman, the host of the new NBC show "Food Fighters," appeared on this morning's TODAY and apologized for his "inappropriate" and "crude" rant toward several people on Instagram last month that led to the cancellation of one of his shows on Travel Channel network.

"Simply put, I got into a silly social media argument, and I lashed out in just a really inappropriate, really crude way, and...I'm incredibly sorry about my actions,'' Richman told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on TODAY Tuesday. "Even more so, I know that my mom raised me better than that, and I was raised to know human beings don't talk that way to each other, and if you're someone on television, it's irresponsible."

The controversy began when Richman, best known as the host of Travel Channel's "Man v. Food Nation," posted a photo of himself on Instagram wearing a large suit that reflected his 70-pound weight loss, tagging the image with the hashtag #thinspiration. Several people then chastised Richmond for his choice of hashtags, due to the fact that it is often used specifically by people with eating disorders and has a negative connotation about body image.
