Blind Items Revealed #1

December 14, 2017

Over the next couple of weeks, several groups and one very large company is going to come down hard on this film/documentary maker. With his recent mea culpa, he inadvertently admitted his headline making documentary was not real and not accurate. He lied about the basic premise of it and now is going to feel the heat about that project and others.

Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me)

And no one was ever under the delusion that McDonalds was healthy in the first place.

does this mean the option to super size is coming back? also if we bring that back can we please bring back the yellow straws with white stripes???

The basic premise was that he only ate McDonalds for 30 days, or 90 days maybe.... if I recall correctly.

So I guess he didn't. Did he cheat and ate other food?

But where did he inadvertently reveal this? I haven't seen anything about that, only about his sexual assaults.

He claimed he was a mess due to exclusively subsisting on McDonalds for a long time. Clearly other factors were at work causing the mess.

Sally, he said in an interview that he's never gone a whole week without drinking, but he listed no alcohol calories in his food log. Oops.

Tom Naughton did the math and showed Spurlock's numbers had to be wrong in his own documentary Fat Head several years ago. It's a good (and funny, he's a comedian) look at the food/nutrition industry's BS.

Heh

spurlock outed himself as an alcoholic as the (lame) excuse for being a rapist and a sexual abuser, and said that he was never sober ever since his teen years. Icky. Yet while filming the documentary he "forgot" to mention any calorie intake from alcohol. So all the premise for the documentary is pure BS. I hope Mcdonalds will sue his ass and humiliate him.

The company is not McDonald's. The documentary is too old to hurt them anymore. It's Google, more precisely YouTube.

Morgan Spurlock had sold the distribution rights to the sequel, Super Size Me 2, to YouTube, for their subscription service YouTube Red, for $3.5m.

For no reason, this fast food is so bad and unhealthy annoys the shit out of me. If one was in a position where one had to eat at mcd's everyday, make better damn choices!! There is oatmeal, mcmuffins, yogurt, choc milk and regular milk, broiled chicken, apple slices, pancakes, and salads. It is WHAT you chose while there that matters, not WHERE you are. Mcd's is not any favorite of mine but people have to take responibility for what they choose to eat.
