There’s just no accounting for stupidity, is there? Popular Travel Channel host Adam Richman’s (Man vs. Food, Amazing Eats) new series Man Finds Food, set to debut tonight, was unceremoniously yanked after a series of inexcusably idiotic moves on Instagram. After he posted a photo of himself with the tag #thinspiration, fans called him out on the term, saying it’s used in “pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia” circles. Naturally, Richman responded by spewing some seriously nasty stuff:
“Don’t come to me with childishness when a hashtag throws you into a tizzy of posting comments and ‘never watching you again. Seriously — grab a razor blade & draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you.”
“Maybe you’ll acknowledge that just because someone is on TV, they are no less worthy of human kindness, respect, forgiveness or patience. If anyone acts like a cunt I’ll call them one. It’s not misogyny, it’s calling a spade a spade.”
Uh, yeah, that last sentence makes all the sense in the world — give me kindness and respect…or I’ll call you a cunt. Dude, I’m going to just sit on my hands and watch your world implode.
Richman did apologize for his “inexcusable remarks,” but I’m not buying what he’s selling.
