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."

    Tony, Tony, Tony - what the fuck, man.......I depended on guys like you to be tough enough to get through the bullshit inherent in the 21st Century and you go and check out voluntarily? Unacceptable, my brother. I expected better. You left us here with fewer trusted friends to guide us. Love you anyway, man. We'll be OK but you took some of the fun away with you....

    I does feel like Tony is just off somewhere on an adventure. Doesn't feel like he's gone. And when I come across a video about his passing, I live it all over again, like it just happened.

    When I just heard about his drug issues that might be an explanation to his death , going back to that is not a nice thought if you’ve been drug free a while...... LEGEND

    Almost a year now and every once in a while I still get very sad because I know I’ll never have a chance to meet him now. When I was growing up and trapped alone in a house I desperately wished to escape from, his show helped me leave for hours at a time, opened my eyes to new dishes I could try to make myself and new cultures and history for me to research and learn from. I wish I could tell him how thankful I am that he helped me realize that people, and the stories they have to tell, are the most fascinating and valuable resource this world has to offer.
    In every country I visit, no matter how far and often I travel, his approach to life, and his philosophy about taking in all the world has to offer, will never be far from my mind, and I’m sure I’m not alone in this.

    I miss the hell out of Anthony. Of all the awful news that came from 2018, this one probably hurt the most. The man brought countless countries into my living room, and inspired me to always try new food and to even take my first trip outside the states. I loved everything about that guy, and the world isn't the same without him.

    Anthony had a poignant way with words which betrayed deep thought. Even with what seemed to be a full life It just highlights how important it is, when dark thoughts hit, to talk, talk to your friends, talk to your family. Don’t suffer quietly and don’t underestimate where your mind can take you.

    The grief rarely subsides... Most of my friends are gone... suicides - in high school from bad grades; Viet Nam; auto accidents; drugs; and on and on.... at 72, I've outlived them all. I discovered Anthony for just a moment it seems, and then he too was gone... even as I was writing him - thanking him - for helping me see all that I'd missed in my life by "staying close to home"... "staying safe." People like him are so rare. I knew when I saw the episodes on Japan and 'Nam, and Laos, and a few others, that I went in the wrong direction in '68... I never should have returned to a country that would so easily send its sons and daughters to their slaughters.

    A most touching tribute to a man who had a great ride in his lifetime!!! I dare say that I leaned more about the world by watching his show, than the news outlets!!! His passing along with Robin Williams has had a profound impact upon me!! They both have been, and are, revered and mourned!! The world seems emptier without them!!

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.
