Earlier this week, the Travel Channel postponed the premiere of former Man v. Food host Adam Richman’s new show, following an incident in which he cursed-out critics on Instagram and suggested that one commit suicide. The melee began after Richman, who recently lost weight, used the controversial hashtag #thinspiration in a self-congratulatory photo caption. Richman has been the face of Walmart’s steak and ground beef line since this spring, doling out meat-centric advice in a bunch of 15-second videos, which are still running on YouTube and over the air as of yesterday, on the eve of one of the year’s biggest grill-centric holidays. “We don’t have anything to share at this time,” Walmart says through a spokesperson.
