Anderson Cooper’s tribute to his friend Anthony Bourdain

  • Published on Jun 9, 2018
  • In death, as in life, Anthony Bourdain brought us closer together.
    On his award-winning series, "Parts Unknown," Bourdain brought the world home to CNN viewers. Through the simple act of sharing meals, he showcased both the extraordinary diversity of cultures and cuisines, yet how much we all have in common.
    Tragically, he proved this again on Friday. Bourdain's death shook television viewers around the world. The most common sentiment: "I feel like I've lost a friend."

    It's funny how many people connected to the clintons hang themselves on doorknobs!
    Why didn't he use a closet, balcony or chandler???
    Just so odd that only people with ties to Clinton hang themselves from doorknobs!

    What he did was selfish, there are people who would love to see the world but just too poor. People who are also starving, but he gets to go and do what ever he wants, but ended his life because he can't handle what ever was getting to him.

    Anderson Pooper knew Anthony Bourdain was taken out because he was going to expose the pedophilia trash that works for CNN and their satanic cult. But Pooper will praise him because he is the same perverted person Anthony was and tried to expose.

    Nice puff piece.
    So despite having an 11-year old daughter... he still killed himself. What an utterly selfish prick. He shacked up with a tattooed slut who French kisses dogs on stage and happily shows her cunt off for the world to see and then she cheats on him with a hotter younger dude. Nice slut.
    Oh, and Anthony is a Jew who wants to rid the world of ethnic diversity especially and above all else, white people.

    Announcement: "Parts Unknown", a CNN series of award-winning quality by Anthony Bourdain deserves the attention of our drug cartel partners in Mexico and Southeast Asia. We want you "Drug Cartel" dealers to stop scaring the people and start doing good deeds such as improving the situations throughout all the areas in the Anthony Bourdain Territory, improve the urban and civic conditions and working conditions with smiles on your nasty rich faces and checks in the hands of the Public Works departments to make those improvements. I will not tolerate one more threat to safety in the "Anthony Bourdain Territory globally. Sincerely, M.K.I. Legal Assistant to the Dukes of Russia.

  • Mary K. Ivanetich, B.S.

    IN HONOR AND HEMORY OF Mr. Anthony Bourdain called by his friends "Tony": I suggest a "splash" as big as he dared to make in the global media world. Let's keep his legacy of great travel and "unusual recipes" alive! He has recorded for us all the interesting roads and restaurants we would never have a chance to see or know. What can we his followers and viewers and friends add to this great legacy? He told us how a little bit of drug using ruined his life for a short time. As a legal assistant, I am requesting amnesty for all such drug users a Anthony Bourdain inside and outside the U.S.A. to get this economic sector now named "The Anthony Bourdain Territory" of the economy back on its feet. This legacy will wander in and out of all the countries he visited with improvements in urban and suburban conditions, electricity, sanitation and working conditions. I have added Anthony's legacy to my project to upgrade the 43 castles of Ivan, the Great and all the Dukes of Russia. Yes, Mr. Anthony Bourdain has upgraded the status of the "Human Condition" with his stories, travels and daring lifestyle. from M.K.I. Legal Assistant to Judge Gregg Wheatland and Howard Harpham JJD

    This death proves that a person can travel around the world, eating poor people food, talk to Obama, tried heroin, fighting for immigrants like CNN and still cannot find true happiness. He probably looks in the mirror and feels sad that his new girlfriend wants a younger man. He still could not find that so many kinds of wonderful fruits, flowers, animals are the reasons to hang on to dear life for as long as possible. I came to the USA from Vietnam and I truly hate any kind of communism including Obumernism of Crooked News Network or the globalist that Anthony wants to be just like Kaepernick of the thuggy NFL athletes. Trump turns out to be a true leader who can turn Kim into a friend, gives me a 71,000 dollars profit in my 401K and stop the NFL thugs from kneeling. Do not believe in Obumernism of Crooked New Network who want to promote Islam, black thugs like Kaepernick or BLM. Now my wish is to see Kaepernick doing the same thing so the world can have 1 less a hole,. Any moron who calls me stupid does not know that I am now a millionaire who can certainly know how to use my money at least for a good massage instead of throwing it all away just because he turned 61 and look like shit. It is truly hilarious or sad to listen to CNN+MSNBC bashing Trump every single day while he is winning. Rest in peace Hillary soldier or the DEMONcRATS.

You seemed like such a cool guy. Now the world is that much less. Why the hell did you have to do this?

    Bourdain was a raging alcoholic that disguised his daily drinking sessions by pairing his booze with little food adventures. The booze was what he really wanted. The food was just a pretense. When alcoholics say "let's have dinner" they mean "I want to get drunk but doing it alone and without food is pathetic, so come with me."

    Because of him in Florence I tried Tripe. It was awful but I also did not like it. I would have never even tried it though if it wasn’t for Anthony. He will be missed by thousands but I feel so sorry for his daughter. 😢

    It has taken me several days to be able to comment on this tragic loss. I still have not been able to completely absorb the sheer enormity of this. I have closely watched his trajectory into super-stardom. His humility, open mindedness and bravura made him a champion among men. His openness about his own darkness and ugliness put him on an ordinary plane-he was one of us. He was us. His adventures, his love of food and people opened this world to me and made me accept different cultures and culinary offerings. He has certainly left an indelible mark on my heart and I am completely devastated at his passing. My heart is broken and won’t likely be the same ever again. My heart goes out to his family. I will miss you my dear friend. See you on the other side.💔💔💔💔💔💔

    Ppl just don't understand depression, and it's too shameful to get help especially for someone as famous as him. I don't agree with the warning signs, I suffer from server depression, attempted suicide an was dead for 17 seconds with tubes In my throat an unconscious for 4 days but I put on a show that I'm the happiest girl in the world and that's how most see me. Please don't flood me with comments cause I'm doing better and have been in therapy a while now. I say this cause the warning signs are not always true, those who show to be overly happy is also a sign, look at all the comedians who suffer depression. The best to all who deal with this an RIP dear Anthony

    I watched one episode of "Parts Unknown" recently, and that was enough for me, although I couldn't help but see what a likable guy he was. I rapidly came to the conclusion that I could never do what he did so well. It was the segment on Myanmar, with him dining with a local at some hole-in-the-wall tea shop/restaurant. All I could think about was that not a single one of the cooks and kitchen workers had ever seen a roll of toilet paper or a bar of soap.

    if i traveled the entire world i would kill myself too, he was just done with the world, he's ready to travel the universe, i feel he knew that was his next level, there is no doubt in my mind that he heard a voice from far away that told him to kill himself, but i dont' think he hung himself, i think he decided to overdose on heroine one last time and had his whole "hanging" death faked...he had the money to make it all happen

    I'd heard his name before - but I'd never seen anything he'd done. I don't really watch a lot of TV or find much of it interesting; I generally have better things to do with my time.
    However, I've been watching some videos of his shows, and I'm not usually one to give a rat's fuck about celebrities, but the world lost a tremendously interesting and inspiring person in him. I just finished watching a show he did on Armenia, and you know this wasn't a persona, but that he was a caring, thoughtful person who wanted to hear other people's stories and to share those stories with the world. This was the kind of person who brought other people's stories out with great enthusiasm and not just to make a television show, but because you could tell that he enjoyed listening to their view on the world and what they had to offer. Obviously deeply flawed, but still just a wonderful person at heart. It's too bad this had to happen. I've been enjoying watching various interviews and shows during the night and I'm going to keep going tomorrow.
