Anderson Cooper Responds To Woman Who Says He Should Have Remained In The Closet

Anderson Cooper Responds To Woman Who Says He Should Have Remained In The Closet

Pictures2CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Wednesday responded to a woman who told him that he should have remained in the closet.

The 47-year-old Cooper came out in 2012 after ducking rumors for years.

Lexie (@twinkleeyes2817) describes herself as a 26-year-old dispatcher on her Twitter profile. The lover of “music, technology, food, outdoors, gym, movies, sleeping, chocolate and more” has 9 followers on the social media site.

“@andersoncooper,” Lexie tweeted, “The world wasn’t interested in hearing about your sexual preference and it didn’t stop you from sharing it with the world.”

“@twinkleeyes2817 thanks Lexie,” Cooper messaged back, “pls tell me where I can get my photo airbrushed like yours, It’s awesome and looks almost lifelike!”

LMAO! That is the best shut-up-your-mouth response I’ve ever seen. And I checked the woman’s profile; the airbrushed photo had disappeared. I guess Cooper’s barb stung her real bad. Someone should have warned her that gay men can like to have a serious case of Bad-Mouth-ism. Lol!

    Seriously I’ve noticed that most of us, including me, know how to fight well with our mouths. I think it’s a defense mechanism, especially for those of us who received taunting while growing up for being girly. By the time you’re working to ‘man up’ you’re also getting some real dirty ‘shut-up’ lines.

      I’m yet to comprehend why one will wish he has bad behaviour. Verbal attacks speak volumes about the character,maturity and discipline of the attacker. One keeps wondering what people who use abusive words seeks to achieve and how they feel after fanning embers of discord.Anderson,s response was far from an attack.Its a mild way of putting an errant in check.

        Oh. Now it is ‘wanting to emulate bad behaviour’ abi? Nobody remembers the ‘sissy’ was sitting helplessly jejely and friendlessly minding his business when the homophobic bullies came around. Who is this??? Take a seat abeg.

    Lol…I don’t even understand her point in that message she tweeted…maybe if she had used “but” instead of “and”,it would have made more sense as shade, but as it is,it looks like an unfinished motivational/pep talk… This,is why she has 9 followers on twitter

    If she knew Cooper she should have known not to start anything. His tongue is as sharp as his jaw. He’s known to throw jabs that reach the soul.
