Ban cheerleader hunter of wild animals from Facebook?

Kendall Jones is a 19-year-old girl from Cleburne, Texas. She's a cheerleader at Texas Tech University and has been hunting big game in Africa since she was 13.

She's recently been under fire for her Facebook page "Kendall Takes Wild," in which she posts photos of her posing over the bodies of recently killed animals.

*WARNING: Some of the photos are fairly gruesome:

She's gained nearly 130,000 Facebook followers since making headlines for her controversial page. Comments range between hunting fans and animal rights activists.

There is a petition circulating online demanding that Facebook remove her page, as well as another petition from a citizen in South Africa asking for the government to ban Jones from the country.

According to BuzzFeed, Jones has an upcoming TV show on the Sportsman Channel about her hunts planned to air in 2015.

Travel Channel pulls Adam Richman's new show after rant

"Man Vs. Food" star Adam Richman is another person making waves online after the Travel Channel pulled his new show following a meltdown on social media.

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 to reports, 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."

Richman's personal Instagram account is locked, but he has apologized for his "inexcusable remarks."

Richman's new show, "Man Finds Food" was slated to premiere Wednesday on the Travel Channel, but has been postponed indefinitely.
