(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."

What he did is wrong but those people are worst than he is. Those people are fully of hatred and wants to see someone died for what someone did ? Those people are really a coward with no forgiven and understanding and hope that someone shouldn't do that again in the near future. He is sorry for what he did and we should forgive him no matter what instead of say those harsh words made me think twice about how sick some humans ever walks on the Earth! They are like those people before the Noah's days! Jeez.
