Anderson Cooper’s tribute to his friend Anthony Bourdain


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.”

    1. Bordain was an prolific advocate of animal cruelty. He stated that life wasn't worth living without meat and that vegans are terrorists. Suicide is always sad but the world is a better place without him. Good riddance asshole.

    2. His honesty pissed me off, made me think and feel. I would not seek out his shows but would always watch them when I came across them. One of the most captivating humans on the planet. Thank you, Anthony, for showing us the world and helping us to see it's beauty through your eyes. Hope you found what you were looking for.

    3. I wondered if both Anthony and Kate had been drinking at the time of their suicide. It is a depressant. He had, I believe, a problem with alcohol. God help his young daughter!

    4. Boohoo ! Another celebrity needle Junkie does the world a favor by taking his own filthy life… good riddance ! ..It's laugh-out-loud funny to know he was a coward to the very end. No merit no virtue.. He was nothing special just a stench in the nostrils of God…
      Stop worshipping celebrities and help your fellow man.

    5. If you call a suicide hotline, the cops will be dispatched to your location and youre gonna be put in a psych ward. I'm not saying you shouldn't call if you need to, i'm just saying you should know the facts before you do. I've seen non-suicidal depressed people reach out for help, and end up locked in a cage and legit suicidal bc of it. Take care of yourselves no matter what..

    6. Richard Cory
      BY EDWIN ARLINGTON ROBINSON
      Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
      We people on the pavement looked at him:
      He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
      Clean favored, and imperially slim.

      And he was always quietly arrayed,
      And he was always human when he talked;
      But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
      "Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.

      And he was rich—yes, richer than a king—
      And admirably schooled in every grace:
      In fine, we thought that he was everything
      To make us wish that we were in his place.

      So on we worked, and waited for the light,
      And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
      And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
      Went home and put a bullet through his head.

    7. Awww. Poor Anthony. What about all the babies you liberal fucks love killing. Be strong. Don't be a pussy. Life is up and down. Quit spreading news of suicide. You only entice other weak people to do the same.

    8. RIP Anthony Bourdain. I found his show and how he shared the food and cultural experience around the world very enlightening and entertaining.

    9. I attribute my love and need for travel to “Parts Unknown” by Anthony Bourdain. Watching you series taught me appreciation and love for humanity. You created a connection with everyone you were opportune to meet, a trait very rare in human beings. Anthony Bourdain your impeccable story telling talent will truly be missed.

    10. I watched his show for around 5 years I loved watching and enjoying all the different cultures and food he brought to all are screens. I hope he rests in peace
      I still can’t bring myself to believe he is gone because he isn’t, Anthony’s spirit will always be with us.
