Award-win­ning doc­u­men­tary direc­tor Mor­gan Spur­lock, best known for his 2004 film “Super Size Me,” has died at 53. Spur­lock­’s fam­i­ly con­firmed his pass­ing on Fri­day, May 24th, reveal­ing he had been bat­tling an undis­closed form of can­cer and under­go­ing chemother­a­py treatment.

Spur­lock rose to fame with his ground­break­ing exper­i­ment in “Super Size Me,” where he ate exclu­sive­ly at McDon­ald’s for a month. 

The film exposed the dan­gers of a fast-food diet, spark­ing a nation­al con­ver­sa­tion about health and the fast-food indus­try. “Super Size Me” earned crit­i­cal acclaim, an Oscar nom­i­na­tion, and grossed $20 mil­lion world­wide, influ­enc­ing pos­i­tive changes with­in the fast-food industry.

“It’s with great sad­ness that we announce the pass­ing of our broth­er, Mor­gan,” said Craig Spur­lock in a state­ment. “He was a true cre­ative genius and a spe­cial man who gave so much through his art, ideas, and generosity.”

Spur­lock­’s death is a sig­nif­i­cant loss to the doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing world. He was a pio­neer known for his will­ing­ness to push bound­aries and raise aware­ness on impor­tant issues. His ded­i­ca­tion to expos­ing the truth about fast-food con­sump­tion, even at a per­son­al health cost, left a last­ing impact.

Spur­lock­’s pass­ing at 53 serves as a reminder of life’s imper­ma­nence and the impor­tance of pri­or­i­tiz­ing health. His lega­cy as a film­mak­er and advo­cate for healthy liv­ing will con­tin­ue to inspire future generations.
