Richman, who has been showing off his 60-pound weight loss, used the hashtag #thinspiration on a recent post. A commenter informed him that the term is highly sensitive and often used by young women cheering on each others' potentially dangerous attempts at weight loss.
According toreports, Richman responded negatively when he was told the meaning of the word, saying things like, "do I look like I give a f***?" and, "grab a razor and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."
