Less than two weeks after the former Man v. Food host Adam Richman cursed at Instagram users who took issue with his use of an offensive hashtag and crude instruction to "grab a razor blade & draw a bath," Travel Channel has, perhaps predictably, pulled Richman’s forthcoming show Man Finds Food from its upcoming lineup. The network has not confirmed that the show’s premiere, which was scheduled for tomorrow, was canceled because of Richman’s social-media behavior, but it confirmed in a statement that the debut has been postponed.

The media personality’s trouble began with a selfie posted to Instagram in mid-June, accompanied by the caption: "Had ordered this suit from a Saville Row [sic] tailor over a year ago. Think I’m gonna need to take it in a little … #Victory #EyesOnThePrize #AnythingIsPossible #fitness #transformation #thinspiration."
