“Supersize Me” Documentary Maker Has Died


Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, an Oscar-nominee who made food and American diets his life’s work—famously eating only at McDonald’s for a month to illustrate the dangers of a fast-food diet—has died at age 53. Spurlock died Thursday in New York from complications of cancer, according to a statement issued by his family, per the AP. “It was a sad day, as we said goodbye to my brother Morgan,” said Craig Spurlock, who worked with him on several projects, in the statement. “Morgan gave so much through his art, ideas, and generosity.”

  1. Seemed like a decent enough fellow. Certainly, an untimely death.

    I doubt he could have made his “Supersize” movie today with Bidenomics in full force.

  2. I wonder what he typically ate? One would think his typical food would have been better.

    I suppose he may have secretly gotten addicted to McDonalds… Or had all the covid shots.

  3. I recall listening to a syndicated medical call-in show not too long after Super-Size Me came out. The show host related an article written by a journalist who decided to try the same diet regimen and found that after a month of eating soley at McDonald’s for a month she actually LOST weight.

  4. Spurlock was pretty much vegetarian, as I recall, at least a healthy eater, and fitness-oriented.
    The other half of eating only at McDonalds for a month was that he intentionally reduced his physical activity to essentially couch potato, the idea being that he was matching the diet and activity of a typical couch potato American. I would guess that the lack of activity had more impact than his McDiet.

  5. ” I would guess that the lack of activity had more impact than his McDiet.”

    When Michael Phelps was training he would consume up to 10K calories a day. A sedentary life style is at least as dangerous as what we eat.

  6. They’ll have to name a new kid’s meal after him. How about, “The Sad Meal?” It could come with sad face stickers and a vomit bag with a sad clown face on it. The meal itself is a day-old McJunk Burger, nuclear fries and a microplastic-filled, contaminated soft drink. Lets get busy killing those little wieners since COVID sure as hell didn’t!

  7. You guys are WAAYYYY off the mark.
    He was NOT a decent guy.
    He came out as a 30 year alcoholic.
    McDonald’s did not harm his health.
    Manipulated his documentaries with fraudulent data.
    Got caught up in the “me too” movement as a serial harasser.
    He was a lying, manipulative sack of shit.
    Of course he will be voting for biden* this Fall.

    PS, I hope Ronald McDonald is popping the champagne…

  8. Yes Brad, yet wanted to make it appear that eating McDonald’s was going to kill you. Didn’t disclose any health problems prior.
    BTW, as if anyone eats there 3 times a day for a month.
    I likened his documentaries to be the equivalent to Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth

  9. LocoBlancoSaltine is right, McCrazy guy was no prize. He had an agenda…mostly leftist. He seemed to also have a problem with meat and trying to prove it’s very harmful.
    Sure, everything in moderation is the best advice, but going to th3 extreme for the purpose of propaganda is maniacal.

  10. McNuggets have been shown to be an effective whining-preventive pacifier that can be of significant value when used in a conscientiously applied program of child control and regular parental neglect.

  11. ^ I always wondered what a ‘dentifrice’ was. Not only a dentifrice, but a 𝙙𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙮 𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙚!

    I refuse to look it up.

  12. My bet would be up to date on all Covid vaccines as all good lefties are.
    I see a lot of sudden death/cancer obits in his age group the past couple years

  13. But Uncle Al, I always knew they were referring to toothpaste, I just didn’t understand what ‘dentifrice’ meant. Especially the ‘frice’ part. I mean, WTF is a ‘frice?’

  14. Loco, again, we agree more more more. He was a manipulating fraud of hollywood desiqn HBO COM CENTRAL style turd. Too many IOTWers have faulty turd recall. 100 percent turd. A.I. Will Always Remember. Log Every Turd. A.I. has. Sup Loco. Our House and an Angel in blue. Center Spacer. Sup P n C 2. LYA

    …and also a rich source of unearned income, if you are of an unchallengeable hue and abdicate all responsibilty for what you yourself hand your children but prefer to blame a restaurant for actually cooking their food instead…



  16. LBS 100% Correct.

    He had very serious alcohol issues WELL BEFORE the McPuke’s Fake Doc.
    His Liver was already shot.

    There are a few Y-tube vids about his Fakery
