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."

    This man and Indiana Jones are the inspirations for me to travel some day
    Also: come on people, drop the politics for once and just let this guy mourn his friend.

    I will never get over this. He once said “Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life-and travel-leaves marks on you.” And you, Tony, you left a huge mark and impact on my life. Thank you.

    Always remembering a legend and an inspirational dude to millions. Intellectual, genuine, bold, brave, worldly, humble and unapologically outspoken. He left an imprint in this world. Missing him dearly.

    I often think of the episode that Anthony got a street haircut in Vietnam. His description of it makes me smile.

    I never actually met him, but I feel I knew him. I've traveled the world with him within the walls of my living room. Ate supper with him nearly every night. My 6 yr. Old daughter loves him too. I have still not had the heart to tell her that he passed away. Not only because I know she will be heart broken, but also we are healing from one of my best friends also passing this year. 2018 was a bad year for us. But mainly so she can still enjoy him, the way I used to. Now I watch him and it deeply saddens me to know that he is no longer with us. I never met you, but I feel I knew you and you took me places and taught me things I would never be able to go and do on my own. I pray you are at peace now Anthony Bourdain. When I eat pork and drink I will think of you.

    IMO of course I didn’t know him, he was tired of the lies and hypocrisy in his own personal relationships, he called out Killary weeks B4 and my guess what he was surrounded by probably you AC & your CNN. The sun is shining on the US economy and everyday 24/7 your employer tells us it’s a bad turbulent day with your Trump derangement syndrome, you are depressing to those vulnerable which could be the majority at any given moment.

    3 days later he was found hanging from a rope, apparently "suicide". There are dozens of other examples of people getting dirt on the Clintons and disappearing or suicide. There are far too many examples for it to be a coincidence...3 days later he was found hanging from a rope, apparently "suicide".

    Fuckkk....I couldn't and still can't believe that he is not anymore among us!
    He was so genuine, so respectful and very simple story teller. I really do miss his shows a lot and when I see them being played I feel his presence still here. His legacy is gonna remain for a very long time.
    Can't believe that such a man have suicidal thoughts. However the happiness or sadness among us are invisible and far away from the material possessions that we seek as substitute due to the lack or absence of the things that we really need.
    Thank you Anthony. Rest in peace now and forever.

    This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a man can attain everything on this planet from riches to status but that’s still doesn’t cut it! Buddy still offs himself. I feel for the kids,
    A man simply needs a relationship with the son of God ,Jesus Christ who died on the cross to save us and forgive us of our sins. Doing this will give you peace, a future, The answer to this life and the life after we pass through the curtain.

    Crazy , not really another way to describe it. Crazy how a brain works... If you have problems like he did in his head, no amount of talking will every git rid of them. Its cliche to compare yourself but that's how I've always felt. No amount of talking will ever make my emotions that are hardwired into my brain change. That's depressing in itself. A scar, is a scar, is a scar. You can't make it something else. You just learn to be an expert at acting in real life. If you have to act in real life you definitely feel very alone. That's my piece, that's my opinion from experience.

You have it so easy it breaks my heart you don't know who we are..maybe you do. That's worst. . You go home when ever you get what you want .We go home when we finish serving you. We do get paid overtime . IS THAT RIGHT. To come home to your family everyday at night. . I understand you may be gay . You got it easy. Investigate me. Stars have the world on Bourdian you have the world why kill yourself. ...To everyone who wants to commit suicide in the USA look at yourself and believe i"m better then them.. Fight back . If no one loves you. ask yourself why? Look inside of you.

    Abandoned his child, hated himself for being a white male, let his girlfriend sleep with other men, handled his cheating girlfriends dirty laundry, and killed himself like a coward.
    Bourdain is a true testament to what left wing philsophy produces; cowardly beta cucked males who hate themselves and take the easy way out.

    When one kills him/herself they gave up and should not be put on a pedestal or glorified.
    I think ones name should be added to a list of people to forget.might prevent suicide by people looking to be noticed or hurt others by killing themselves.

    His death hit me very hard. For quite a few reasons. I understand depression. I too have been suicidal. Knowing what his last moments of life were probably like, along with everyone else who has taken their life bc of depression, that and that alone hurts the most. I wouldn't wish what I feel in the isolating darkness of depression on anyone.
