They decided to comment on Richman's photo, explaining that for people working in the body positivity movement, #Thinspiration is actually seen as a harmful phrase. Richman replied with "Does it look like I give a fuck?"

"Yes. I’ve responded to internet hate recently with vile words directed at those hating me. I am sorry, I should know better & will do better," Richman tweeted, going on to admit he's always struggled with his weight.

Travel Channel told the Washington Post on Tuesday that it decided to postpone the debut of Richman's upcoming show.

The program, titled Man Finds Food, has been halted. The Travel Channel would not confirm, however, if the reason why was because of Richman's social media controversy.

"Travel Channel is postponing the July 2 series premiere of 'Man Finds Food,'" a spokesperson said in a statement.
