TikTok star John Clark — who goes by the Meal Prep King — lost his publisher Wednesday after publishing two Instagram rants against women and “fat” people.
Clark — who boasts an impressive 1.6 million followers on TikTok — allegedly called women “f – – king scruffy c – – ts” as well as labeled an overweight person “a f – – king mammoth,” according to Insider.
He also then allegedly made an ableist slur, telling one of the commenters on a livestream to “shut the f – – k up, you f – – king retard.”
Clark built his reputation by posting on Instagram about his weight-loss journey, as well as publishing two books about healthy meal prep.
According to viewers of the diatribe, Clark made the inflammatory comments while responding to people on the livestream.
“Have some respect for females,” said Clark, allegedly quoting a commenter. “Nope, you’re all f – – king scruffy c – – ts.”
He continued to mock the commenter by saying that he liked to annoy women.

“I do like pissing women off,” Clark added.
“‘I’m a woman. I’m a female. I have rights,’” he continued in a mocking tone while putting on a high-pitched voice.
Social media users sprang into action and condemned Clark while tagging his UK publisher, Penguin Random House.

“John Clark aka The Meal Prep King — this man is vile! Get this shared everywhere, he does not deserve a following,” wrote one angry Twitter user.
“This is just a small snippet of the derogatory language used.”
Penguin replied directly to the tweet, saying that they are “appalled by John Clark’s unacceptable behavior.”
“We do not have any more books under contract with John and will not be working with him in future,” said the publishing house.

The Post has reached out to Clark for comment through social media.
It was also revealed during one of the livestreams that Clark had ended things with his partner, Charlotte Deniz.
Clark, now sporting a black eye, went on a second expletive-laden rant on Instagram — which later ended up on YouTube — where he mocked people with weight issues.
“You’re a f – – king mammoth [who’s] like, this tall, and then you want to blame everybody else,” he proclaimed. “You’re fat, overweight — stop f – – king making excuses.”

Fans attempted to minimize the damage and told the wayward author to stop talking; however, Clark started to slam them for not nurturing their own success.
“I make f – – king thousands from people like you,” he claimed. “I make more money in one minute than all you people.”
Several fans expressed their dismay at the tirade.
“I was a fan of his, me and my partner bought both of his books earlier this year in an attempt to start living a more healthy lifestyle and I was impressed as some of the recipes are really good,” wrote one heartbroken fan.
“I’m really disappointed to see the type of guy he really is after all those comments. He did go on to say other comments using derogatory terms for disabled people etcetera as well.”
“Absolutely ridiculous,” chimed in another. “I’m not on the whole cancel culture, but someone like this, who holds these views, needs to be dropped by reputable publishers.”
