Social Media gives everyone the opportunity to express themselves, some really take it to the extreme with their expressions. TV host of the Travel Channels Man V. Food Adam Richman went on an angry rant on Instagram and now he is paying for it. Richman began using the hashtag #thinspiration and many followers were outraged. The followers believed that #thinspiration promotes bulima and anorexia. Richman highly disagreed. Being that Richman has lost 70 pound while hosting these food shows, so of course he felt that this was a great accomplishment. Losing weight when your job is to eat a lot is truly amazing. Sharing his transformation was supposed to be inspiring.
Here is where things went terribly wrong. Multiple followers voiced their opinions on #thinspiration which is a term used for pro-bulimic and pro-anorexic groups. I am not sure if Adam knew this, but all of the negative feedback from his followers set him off. He told some people they should commit suicide because no one will miss them, and he told other that their dad should have used a condom.
Well the big wigs at the travel channel have gotten word of this unfortunate incident and they have postponed the airing of Richman’s show Man V. Food. No word on when the show will air. Adam Richman’s Instagram page is now private as well.
Do you think this was the right thing to do? Should be cancelled for good?
