Adam Richman–the formerly fluffy host of Man v. Food who irked online folks by using the word “thinspiration” to describe his recent weight loss–may be on the cusp of losing his new show too.

The Travel Channel recently announced that it was postponing the July 2 debut of Man Finds Food, a new show that would have sent Richman on the hunt for off-the-beaten-path restaurants and menu items. A spokesman for the cable network wouldn’t provide a reason for the decision, though the timing is suspect given Richman’s recent online tirade. After he posted a photo on his Instagram account that showed his weight loss, he included the hashtag #thinspiration. He quickly learned via his followers that the term “is very popular in pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia circles,” according to blogger Amber Sarah. The online fight escalated, with Richman hurling expletive-fueled digs–some of which he took down.

Richman has become a big personality for The Travel Channel, even though he hasn’t produced fresh episodes of Man v. Food–a show that featured him eating massive quantities of food–for years.
