Twitter Feud With Travel Channel’s Adam Richman
Before I say anything else, even though both parties took this 3 hour twitter beef to another level, this has been squashed on my end.
Yesterday, I was watching a re-run on the Travel Channel of Man Vs Food Hosted by Adam Richman. Like most everyone in first world countries, I use Twitter to Tweet at celebs.
Yesterday afternoon I sent a tweet to Adam Richman, which for some reason has been deleted since Adam Richman decided to block me from Twitter. Keep in mind I was a HUGE fan of his show, and looked up to Adam as a Network Television personality.
The tweet that SPARKED the match to fuel this fire was …
Watch #ManVsFood and it seems like @AdamRichman is talking at me….not to me..
I tweet at every celeb I can, and like everyone else, sit and hope for a response from their favorite movie, radio, sports, or tv star!
Well, Adam Richman respond not with a tweet, but with a Twitter Direct Message….
Not sure if the words I used in the Tweet that “magically” had been deleted were offensive to him, but it was NEVER my intention to offend anyone especially Adam from Man Vs Food!
Now, I found it super strange that he took my words in offense and attempted to respond VIA twitter DM….But, Adam Richman has now blocked me from twitter. I took a screen shot of the message that was sent to me from Travel Channels own Adam Richman, and posted it to my Instagram account…in which Adam Richman took the time out of his busy day ONCE AGAIN to respond to my post.
I am not sure about you guys, but its not right to tell anyone that “they don’t matter”. Words are taken to heart, and CAN effect people mentally in a positive way as well as negative. I am getting these responses from someone that I watched every day in college!
When I lived in Minneapolis, MN, Adam Richman turned me on to “Matt’s Diner” home of the “Juicy Lucy” …a burger with cheese between two all beef patties! Melted cheese on a bomb burger. I honestly only went to this “DIVE BAR” because I watched Adam Richman talk about this burger for an half hour.
You watch someone everyday and consider than an “ICON” and then they tell you that you “Don’t Matter”?? I honestly wonder how many other people he has responded to like this via social networking.
Like any radio personality… I took it to the airwaves. I am not calling Adam Richman ANY names. I am just stating that a ‘Public Figure’ with a HALF A MILLION twitter followers and a tv show on network television ask me ‘If I thought I mattered’.
I may not matter to you Adam Richman, but what makes Boise so amazing are the people that do NOT like to hear people being brought down. 40+ people started on this #ManvaFail twitter blast, and I thought it was awesome!
I love that you all can listen to 103.5 KISS FM, and be apart of what we do everyday. I want to let you all know that YOU DO MATTER. Adam Richman, your words hurt me yesterday, and I am glad I have a community of great people to bring me back up from the low that this dude put me in.
This Twitter ‘Beef’ went on for about 2.5 hours last night. You can read the whole thing right here! The funny thing is, my twitter name is ‘Kanye West‘ because I thought changing my name to that would get me more followers.
Being that Kanye is currently in the middle of a break down, this gained me no followers. So the whole time it looks like Adam Richman is beefing with Kanye. Thats TMZ worthy..
Adam Richman and myself “Squashed The Beef” last night, but I don’t think he understood where I was coming from. I stopped all of this after “Cyber Bullying” was brought into the conversation.
I am going to take my own advice when I say, be careful of what you say to others and be nice to everyone! I love all of your faces, and would gladly accept any challenge that Adam Richman decideds he wants to throw at me….even if its a “Burger Off” at Big Juds!!
