Morgan Spurlock dies: What was the cause of death of the ‘Super Size Me’ director?

Spurlock was launched into stardom by the wildly successful documentary as he attempted to just eat McDonald’s every day for a month.

A few fast food restaurants will serve fish sandwiches during Lent. Here is the full list of where they can be found.

Morgan Spurlock, the acclaimed documentary filmmaker behind the hit film “Super Size Me,” has passed away at the age of 53 due to complications related to cancer.

Spurlock’s family confirmed his death in a statement, expressing their profound sadness.

It was a sad day, as we said goodbye to my brother Morgan,” Craig Spurlock, wrote in the statement issued Friday morning. “Morgan gave so much through his art, ideas, and generosity. The world has lost a true creative genius and a special man. I am so proud to have worked together with him.”

Morgan Spurlock’s career

Born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, in 1970, Spurlock graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 1993. He began his career as a playwright before transitioning to filmmaking, creating the gonzo web series “Bet You Will” for MTV and Spike.

Spurlock’s breakout success came in 2004 with the release of “Super Size Me,” a documentary that chronicled his health changes after consuming only McDonald’s food for 30 days.

The film, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Feature, sparked widespread debate about eating habits and led to McDonald’s discontinuing their “super size” servings.

Spurlock’s career took a turn in 2017 when he publicly acknowledged past indiscretions, including sexual misconduct and infidelity.
