Anderson Cooper Cusses Out Photo-Snapping Plane Passenger

Anderson Cooper Cusses Out Photo-Snapping Plane Passenger

Anderson Cooper waits for his car outside Chateau Marmont on Thursday (June 21) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 45-year-old CNN anchor recently appeared on Kathy Griffin‘s self-titled Bravo talk show where he recalled losing his cool on a New York to Los Angeles flight.

“I’m sitting there incredulous that he thinks I don’t see him,” Anderson said about a fellow passenger who was using his iPhone’s front-facing camera. “And he’s still taking the pictures.”

“I grab the guy on the shoulder, and I said something to the effect of, ‘B—h, what the f— are you doing?’” he told a shocked Kathy audience.

“Honestly, it was one of those things, as soon as I said it, I was like, ‘I can’t believe I said this to this guy,’” he added.

    Celebrities are ridiculous, they should know that THEIR JOB comes with people always wanting to take their picture. I understand there want for privacy and dislike for the paparazzi, but they all act like having their picture taken is something new.

    @Effy: We’re not talking paparazzi here though. He clearly says it was a passanger, taking pictures with his phone during a commercial flight. So it wasn’t a public appearance, and not entirely a public place. And while I agree Anderspn overreacted, I can also understand the rage – it’s not like he could get off the plane.

    I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want some random person taking my pictures w/o my consent, especially in my downtime.

  • vool

    Is it just me or has Anderson Cooper turned into a bit of a…….diva..?

  • Notafan

    @vool:
    Totally agree!

  • Violet’s mommy

    That phrase could not be more gay if he wanted to. It’s time for Anderson to come out of the closet already.

  • Net

    AC was absolutely right to go off on that person who was taking his pic without permission. It’s very rude to get in someone’s personal space and do something like that. I don’t blame him for being angry.
