Man who ate McDonald’s for a month for the documentary “Super Size Me” dies of cancer at 53

New York – The American director Morgan Spurlock, best known for the documentary “Super Size Me” (2004) in which he ate in McDonald’s every day for a month, He died yesterday at the age of 53 due to “complications derived from cancer,” his family reported this Friday.

“It was a sad day as we said goodbye to my brother Morgan. He contributed so much through his art, ideas and generosity. The world has lost a true creative genius and a special man,” said his brother Craig Spurlock, who worked with Morgan on various projects, in the statement.

Spurlock achieved international recognition after the groundbreaking “Super Size Me,” which received an Oscar nomination. It opened the debate on eating problems and the risks of fast food abuse in the United States, and still serves as an educational tool in schools and institutes throughout the country.

The documentary filmmaker, a native of West Virginia, filmed the second version of his Oscar-winning audiovisual piece, titled “Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken” (2019), focusing on the pressures of large fast food chains on small family poultry farms, but this second installment was not as widely accepted.
