(Newser) – Remember Adam Richman from Man v. Food? Well, he was set to make his TV comeback with a new Travel Channel show, Man Finds Food, this week. But that's no longer happening. Travel Channel has indefinitely postponed the show's premiere—and Variety says the decision seemingly has to do with Richman's recent social media activity. While flaunting his 70-pound weight loss online, Richman used the hashtag #thinspiration, a word most often associated with pro-eating disorder Internet communities. When some of Richman's followers pointed that out to him, the 40-year-old host fired back with some intense responses, including allegedly telling one to "'Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."
