Anderson Cooper: Biking Buddies, Butt Tweeting

Anderson Cooper: Biking Buddies, Butt Tweeting

CNN host Anderson Cooper and pal Antoine Maisani, aka Ben, wear matching Fred Perry polos and take their matching mountain bikes for a ride around Manhattan’s Greenwich Village on Friday afternoon (June 26).

The 42-year-old Silver Fox must be having a bumpin’ time tonight. Two hours ago, he tweeted two consecutive nonsensical messages on his Twitter account @AndersonCooper: “IOiu” and “Y”.

Since butt-dialing exists, is there such a thing as butt-tweeting? Butt-twittering?

    Wow! guys. This site is nothing like Perez Hilton. Some of you guys are really delusional. So what is wrong about posting an article on Anderson Cooper? isn’t he a public figure? I don’t get why some of you are so defensive. So what if he’s intelligent? Jared is not allowed to post stories about intelligent people? you guys so are pathetic. It’s not like Jared is saying anything disparaging about him or drawing a ***** on his face or cocaine on his nose like Perez. This is nothing but a positive post showing Anderson biking with a “pal”. Get over yourselves.

    @Jennifer: My God understands that we all have different hormonal levels in our fetal state and that we are born either homosexual, heterosexual or somewhere along the spectrum in between. Whether a person is attracted to the same gender as they are or the opposite is simply irrelevent.

    So someone is going to wait a whole day before tweeting that they saw someone famous? I doubt that very seriously! Especially seeing how people are always trying to catch Anderson with men and telling it the second they see it. PLEASE!!

    God doesn’t approve war, murder and dishonesty, etc, either, but I don’t see people point fingers at it as easily as they point to gay people.

    When will AC come out and say that he is a gay man? I mean seriously, everyone already knows that he’s gay and he works for CNN. CNN definitely won’t fire him for being gay. I just think he’s kind of an a-hole when it comes to talking about his personal life. I know that it’s suppose to be private but he’s a celebrity and when you’re a celebrity, nothing about your life is private. That’s the price of fame.

    Being a celebrity means people intrude into your personal life and talk about your business. It doesn’t mean you have to cooperate with them when they do that. The price of fame is people prying and watching you, not some obligation to publicly share anything the public wants access to. Straight celebs pick and choose what to share as well based on what they’re comfortable with and what works for their career.

    Who are these people saying Anderson is hot, what do you find hot, his white pasty skin , his weird beak nose, small beady eyes. Anderson is anything but hot and that guy with him could do a lot better then Anderson Cooper especially because Anderson his a closeted gay, who wants to deal with that. It’s funny how Anderson hides behind being a reporter to air on his show the private lives of celebrities and politicians, acting as if he is better then, while he himself is a fraud never openly admitting to his viewers that he is gay.

    Well we know he likes it up the butt, but I don’t think it called butt tweeting, and I like JJ puns so shut up, what’s wrong with a little humor with some of the posts.

    alex Says:

    Why doesn’t Anderson live openly gay , he does all these gay issues on his show but never cops to his audience … ah I’m gay. One of his fans said that Anderson doesn’t admit he is gay because he reports in regions like the Middle East, Africa, Asia where you would be a target if they knew you where gay, these are the same people who want the military personnel to serve openly gay. I guess they wouldn’t care if soldiers would be targets since most serve in these countries and live among the population and they don’t have bodyguards protecting them.

    Didn’t like this story AT ALL! You don’t know what Anderson is, so leave him alone. He hasn’t done anything bad to anyone. He gives great reports on CNN! Nothing like the hate garbage from Fox.

    SO JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE! Have some respect, don’t become trashy like perez hilton, or I’ll just read at radaronline ONLY.

    @alex: Uh…the soldiers are carrying guns, are trained to kill and go around in coordinated units. Anderson is carrying a mike and a camera. Anyway, the soldiers are not famous public figures. They aren’t going to be walking around with a sign saying “I’m gay” on their uniforms, so the population of those nations won’t know who their partner at home is. Getting rid of DADT is about being able to be out to the people they are serving with and able to walk around with their partner at home without geting kicked out of the service because someone informed on them. They will have the right not to discuss their sexuality unless they want to, instead of the old system where you were asked up front if you were gay or the new one where you are asked if you are gay if you are investigated. Anderson lives openly in his regular life and has the right to share what he wants to with the public.

    @teresa: If he’s talking about someone’s personal life on the news it’s because the person has made a public spectacle of themselves, misused power or public money, violated the law, or has involved themselves in some scandal that contradicts the version of their personal life they themselves had chosen to trot out and display for the public to sell their political campaign and policies. There’s nothing wrong with being gay and he’s never lied about it, so I don’t see how this is remotely related to things like some “family values” politician cheating on his wife with some man or woman he put on the public payroll.

    @alex: You have a good point.
    Anyway, more he wants to hide more he attracts media attention. (Of course, there is many gay celebrities in many fields and their privates lifes aren’t in newspapers each week.)

    His work on Hurricane Katrina was extra-ordinary. He commands professionalism, and he is hot gay or not. He is an exceptional journalist that goes where no journalist goes. He deserves respect, not what JJ bylines gave. We are not stupid, just curious jared!! And I guess you “haven’t made it until you have been on jared”!

    Sucks for women that he is gay, but what ever makes him happy. I love anderson cooper and I think his personal life is no one’s business.

    reggie Says:

    @Umm…we do know this, Anderson was in Paris last week, his bf is from Paris and it follows that the guy probably was on the trip with him–the timing of the Twitter post is not really a big deal.

    JJ, American military personnel serve in over 80 countries around the world, most live on bases but do go to local towns for entertainment and recreation , especially when they have days off and they don’t walk around in full gear strapped with guns with their unit, even in war zones like Iraq the reason the surge was successful was because American solders lived with their Iraqi counterparts in the same units among the local people. Anderson Cooper may have a mike, someone else has the camera, he also has very well armed men protecting him, no major reporter, especially a anchor that works for a major News organisation would go any where to do reporting without a security assessment and security guards, the lawyers and insurance people at CNN wouldn’t allow anything less, so stop pretending Anderson is some freelance reporter that lives among the population of these countries, the couple of times he has reported from Iraq or Afghanistan he was embedded with soldiers and had massive security with him when he set one foot off the American base. Jewish and women reporters are more targeted then any other, you don’t see them hiding who and what they are, Anderson Cooper is just a coward, he writes a book about his private life and career, goes on a publicity tour, talks about his wacky mother, father’s death, brothers suicide but never mentions that he likes men, he does gay issues on his show but has never admitted to his viewers that he is gay, even when he guest hosts or goes on all those entertainment shows, like Ellen and Oprah he pretends he his straight, Supposedly he lives openly because he is seen walking some where with a man, even though he is never showing any affection, holding hands, a kiss, has never shown up with a male date to any event, has never talked openly about being gay in interviews or on his show or in appearances but he lives openly, sign
