adam richman weight loss thinspiration rant tv show postponed

This is just sad anyway that you look at it!

Man v. Food star Adam Richman has struggled with being overweight his whole life, so when he showed off his recent weight loss, he was excited! Unfortunately, he ignorantly hashtagged the pic “#thinspiation” which is linked with being pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia.

So, some commenters called Richman out on this! But instead of handling it sensitively, he instead responded with vitriol, saying things like:

teenage girls seek thigh gap through starvation

Teenage girls are apparently starving themselves to achieve what many underweight models have: a "thigh gap."

Instagram Will No Longer Support Self-Destruction

Filed under: Tech TalkSad SadDietsFoodEating DisordersBody

We had no idea people actually did this but apparently it happens enough that Instagram had to take action.

We're talking about Instagrams that promote eating disorders and other self-destructive behaviors.

It was allegedly getting to be such a problem that the photo-sharing social networking site released a statement:

"Don’t promote or glorify self-harm: While Instagram is a place where people can share their lives with others through photographs, any account found encouraging or urging users to embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or to cut, harm themselves, or commit suicide will result in a disabled account without warning.

We believe that communication regarding these behaviors in order to create awareness, come together for support and to facilitate recovery is important, but that Instagram is not the place for active promotion or glorification of self-harm."

It seems that all of that should go without saying but we guess there are some confused people out there.

We feel like if someone is using Instagram to share photos that promote self-destruction, then it may be more a cry for help than some sadistic attempt to harm others.

We feel so bad for anyone who feels the need to have an account like that and hope that if they get their Instagram account disabled it'll be a small wake up call to change their lives.
