Anthony Bourdain Has Died



TV celebrity and food writer Anthony Bourdain has been found dead in his hotel room in France while working on his CNN series on culinary traditions around the world. He was 61.

CNN confirmed the death, saying in a statement that Bourdain was found unresponsive Friday morning by friend and chef Eric Ripert, and calling his death a suicide.

RIP. Great man, broke my heart to hear this today.

filmfanb said...

Really sad about this :(

If you or someone else you know may be suffering, please call 1-800-273-8255. There are better solutions.

Tricia13 said...

Omg nooooo
I adored him. His candor, charm intelligence and particularly his irreverence
💫❤️RIP

Hanniam said...

I’m a bit crushed TBH. I’ll miss his candor especially.

Tricia13 said...

He was so full of adventure and decadence—-all which made him a fantastic storyteller. It seems so contrasting to his nature (fierce and bold); I wonder if he was sick and just didn’t want to live out his days that way?

totaji said...

Did he relapse?

Tricia13 said...

I know so refreshing in a phony BS ,PC world.

MyTwoCents said...

I don’t know his mental health history or struggles but a couple of interesting layers to thieves story. His girlfriend of the past 18 months was one of the Weinstein accusers/victims/survivors and Bourdain wasn’t very outspoken about it. Secondly, two hours before he was found, his girlfriend posted a pic wearing a T-shirt that said “Fu** Everybody” with a caption “You know who you are.” Definitely more to this story...

KayeC said...

Maybe I've been reading this site too long, but my first thought was conspiracy! It's just too weird, he seemed to have the best job in the world. Also because of the Asia/Weinstein connection. Either way it seems hard to believe. RIP.

MyTwoCents said...

*this story, not thieves story.

Kerrimoo said...

SO very very sad to hear this - I absolutely adored him. RIP fella.

MyTwoCents said...

Was, Bourdain WAS very outspoken about it! Yeesh, bad day with auto-correct!

ckpsjp said...

I truly thought he was the one guy who had his shit completely together. It just shows how good people become at hiding their depression, mental illness and pain.

MyTwoCents said...

Same here. “Best” case scenario, it really was an action of his choice and not someone else’s.

Unknown said...

He must have had information that would have led to the arrest of Hillary Clinton

Me Again said...

Really David? Not appropriate.

This really makes me sad. RIP

B626 said...

My 1st thought he’s seen some pretty bad stuff off camera in all these 3rd World Countries
That shit can haunt you

Tricia13 said...

I think as someone asked above—he may have relapsed(heroin was his addiction). He kicked it many years ago(seemkngly). That or he was ill and didn’t want to not being to live life to the fullest)?
It’s just astonishing in any scenario:(

Southern Man said...

Was he hanged with a red scarf tied to the doorknob?

BAADAMS13 said...

I'm agreeing with some other posts here - more to the story. Let's think about these "suicides" - Cornell, Chester Bennington - heavily rumored they were putting together some type of documentary about teenagers that were being sexually abused by big Hollywood names. They both die of "suicide" within months of each other - and we know Vicki Cornell was DIRTY and PAID. Now we have someone who has a history of drug addiction & illness - but his gf is part of the Weinstein mess. HMMMMMMM

Guesser said...

If not related to his cancer or other disease, Is this enough?

Emptywood said...

Draw your own inferences, but isn't Bourdain the guy that's famous for eating absolutely ANYTHING?

I'm seeing connections between him and Marina, with Haiti + Penn and the C Foundation, as well as CNN which is all CIA'd up.

Much deeper story here than "poor guy"

Anonymous said...



Heroin is suicide. It is self destruction, and those taking it, know this.
Why would anyone be surprised that he ended up this way?

kelly said...

I agree Tricia13: it’s astonishing to think he would do this. He was so full of life. I’m just crushed today about this

filmfanb said...

Josh Homme No Reservations was one of my favorite tv experiences ever.

Totto_ said...

I'm sorry if I offend anyone with this question but don't you think it's weird how suddenly, all these people are killing themselves? It's been day and day that we hear someone from the industry committed suicide. It's so... Strange to say the least.

NordeastB said...

@mytwocents "Not outspoken enough?" You obviously never read his Twitter timeline. Hugely supportive in the press of her. Nonetheless, she took up with a French reporter (Hugo Clement) this week and Daily Mail had the photos. She is owed no sympathy.

Anonymous said...

This is sad. RIP Anthony. I do agree my spidey sense went off when I heard. I think the abusers and pedos/ traffickers are getting nervous and cleaning house...or sending messages to those who might be willing to talk? Yes, he did do alot in excess and prob drugs but look at Keith Richards. Not buying it yet. Too many apparent ‘suicides.’

Unknown said...

He was a hateful, ranting douchebag that blamed everything on BREXIT or Trump. You know they types, they're all over the internet.

These are scary, scary people. Usually they take out a nightclub or a school or baseball game. We can be thankful he was a coward the only victim he left behind was his 11 year old daughter.

Anonymous said...

A recent BI alluded to him sleeping with Rose McGowan. So yeah...

Guesser said...

@NordeastB,that was an autocorrect typo @mytwocents corrected.

Guesser said...

If things can't get weirder, check out the song link he left on his last twitter.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Not buying the official story here anymore than I do anywhere else.

Lindy said...

He had demons in the past. It *appears* his recent girl friend, Asia A might have broken up with him as she was seen with another guy a day or two earlier. Let’s forego the conspiracies.

Tricia13 said...

Me too😰

My little Spanish style cottage said...

@Flipdern "He was a hateful, ranting, douche bag" At first I thought YOU WERE talking about Trump. Because it's true. Rest In Peace Anthony Bourdain. I hope you find the peace you couldn't find here. But most of all, I hope your sitting on some cloud, drinking a cold one, laughing your ass off at all of the idiots down here.

Krab said...

Ah, I knew reading the conspiracy theory nutbars would brighten my mood.

He was very vocal about it re Asia and others that he knew who had been victimized. He was making noise and waves

LINDY: The 'man' he was seen with was the man who found him in his hotel room. Eric Ripert, Chef Extraordinare and owner of Le Bernadin in NYC. Bourdin's heritage was French. He was first generation American. I posted his passing the minute I heard it this morning. I have a TV in my hospital room and when the news came on I burst into tears. The nurses turned it off. I will have to learn what happened on-line. Met him a few years back on the street in Manhattan. Stopped him and told him how much I liked his book on Typhoid Mary. He said he was stunned that anyone actually read it. We stood on the sidewalk outside the 42nd St. Port Authority and talked for 20 minutes. He was incredibly approachable and real. We shook hands as he walked away and I said halfway down the block, I love you to death! He stopped, turned around, hesitated, "Miss Boo, you just totally made my day! Thank you!" I can't believe he did this. Something is very wrong with this picture. If it had been anyone else. He was so ALIVE!!!

Eowyn said...

"Great man"? His suicide broke your heart? What is wrong with you people?

Last September, Bourdain said he would give Trump poison if given the chance. In November, he said it’s great that in 70 years there won’t be any more white people. What a "great man"! /sarc

fionafab said...

Enwyn: I don't have a TV or Internet where I live now. I never heard this statement. It doesn't change how we feel about him. Obviously you have never read his books. He was mad, bad and dangerous to know, to quote a famous man from long ago. Can we lay off the snark just for today? He affected everyone the same way; we loved him.

Schneiderisnext said...

He was found surrounded by half eaten hotdogs covered in ketchup

Stay away from drama queen women: always good advice.

Rosie riveter said...

~Very amazing and interesting post, thank you for sharing~

Rosie riveter said...

I dont think I accept the version given

Dena said...

I have a food-writer friend who knew him very well, and she described him as someone who had a really unique abililty to get to know someone because of his authentic interest and curiosity in those he was around. He helped her both professionally and with some aspects of her personal life when she really needed it. Personally, I love his books and always looked forward to his travel shows - he will be missed.

palmettobug said...

I stunned that people are trying to pin his suicide on some Daily Mail photos of her embracing, not clandestinely as one would in an affair, but on the sidewalks of Rome, come on people, he is the reporter who has been in her corner while she has been attacked in the Italian press, Clement is the guy who showed her Cannes speech to the world in the press, and obviously him being an activist reporter, is her ally. They have been giving her hell in Italy. How can people read so much into that? Especially when the Daily Mail headline states 'Celebrating Harvey's downfall: Asia Argento embraces writer who shared her speech attacking Weinstein for using Cannes as his 'hunting ground', as pair stroll through Rome.' So she is going to go to Rome to appear on public streets cheating with photogs all over? She was clearly in a relationship with Bourdain, period. The desire to blame the victim is ridiculous.

fionafab said...

Rosie--Neither do I! In order to spare his young daughter additional grief, they are covering something up, big time. Did he shoot up heroin laced with fentanyl and OD? Hanging seems more au currant these days. ODing is so ghetto. I don't believe he hanged himself. Period.

Kate said...

Me too :(

DejaBlue said...

Why did Andy Spade make his first appearance after Kate's death wearing a mask of the mouse in the movie The Rescuers? That's creepy as shit.

Thorne said...

Nobody in the news is saying what usually gets said about celebrity suicide so far about Bourdain: long struggle with depression, etc.

Since this is the only place I can indulge this, I'm guessing auto-erotic asphyxiation accident.

miller langhorne said...

As with all TV personalities, what is seen on screen is not necessarily their real self (obviously). Anthony had many great qualities, but there was indeed a side to him that just wasn't very pleasant. Summers in the Hamptons was never his best self.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Andy Spade in the mouse mask was unsettling, to say the least. And a bright yellow kids' backpack, too?

Lucy said...

@Boo - OD'ing is "so ghetto". What an ignorant comment. Substance abuse is no joke and many people (including myself) struggle with it. Why don't you think before you post such obnoxious statements.

Lucy said...

Then again, you were also trying to tell us the other day that Naomi Watts and Liev Shreiber were relationship goals (after Enty has told us for years all the did was cheat on her and another poster said the maid didn't even know Liev lived at the same residence because he was there so infrequently), so clearly you're as clueless as they come anyways.

Ly said...

His book Kitchen Confidential led me down memory lane and revisited all the years I worked in the restaurant/bar industry. I never met Bourdain but he struck me as grounded, genuine, with a zest for life. Like a breath of fresh air. RIP AB.

yepthatsme said...

I might be in the minority here but i wholeheartedly believe that a person has the absolute right to take their own life. We might not agree but we have to respect their decision. RIP Anthony, yours was a life truly lived!

Poppymann said...

Agreed. I've said before: Suicide is not the selfish act of a coward. For some, it is the only way to end the pain that very few people understand.

Ly said...

I can see your point. There are probably times when a suicide should really be described as euthanasia.

Brayson87 said...

I'd never do suicide out of fear of an afterlife. If you reincarnate you wind up in the same or worse gutter, 80% of the world lives in poverty, you want to roll those dice? Hell is hell, heaven is an eternity with the same a$$hole humans you couldn't stand in the first place. Sure you might hit the jackpot of sweet sweet oblivion, but you're much safer making the best out of your remaining time here. Because in all likelihood you are going someplace much worse.

Unknown said...

Add another to the Clinton body count. Not the man he was perceived to be. Only question is why? Did he fail to RSVP his Bohemian Grove invite? Who will do the spirit cooking atop the Bohemian Stove now? He sealed his fate when he signed on to accept paychecks from CNN, whooops. Dude would never hang himself either, Tony would opt for one last "hot shot" in a final dance with Mr. Brownstone. That's 4 "suicides" this week now. Tell me more...

Christina said...

I don't buy that he committed suicide. He had too much life in him in recent photos. I know Alex Jones is crazy, but sometimes he's right -- and he think they killed Bourdain because of a spot he had recently filmed with Elon Musk in which Bourdain and Musk were going to expose some globalists secret. "Do a Kanye." Jones claims that if Elon Musk dies in a plane crash or also commits suicide, he was totally murdered. Read his take here. https://www.mediamatters.org/video/2018/06/08/alex-jones-anthony-bourdain-may-have-been-murdered-because-he-was-going-do-kanye-west/220403

tinydancer61 said...

Did he relapse? Ummm...there are a gazillion pictures of him drinking beer....Addiction is addiction. You cannot kick heroin and cocaine while drinking alcohol. It just doesn't work like that. So, I doubt he was ever really sober. That being said, I've been reading for a long while how there are going to be lots of suicides in the coming days and something big is supposed to break on June 11th. What, I have no clue. It does seem weird that he was in a relationship (or formerly?) with that woman who was supposedly a victim of HW. Is there a connection? Who knows?

fionafab said...

LUCY: I am always amazed at how much energy a few of you CDAN posters exert when I post on this site. You know who you are. I come back after being gone months and all of a sudden the site is riddled with long, long Enty stories. A certain person starts posting every three minutes while saying nothing new. I have really hit a nerve here. There is one subject that my close friends and people who know me get that is not spoken about: drugs and drug addicts. I have zero tolerance for people who are so weak they let someone talk them into medicating themselves for any reason. I recently had major, major surgery and have turned down all the pain killers, morphine drips or anything that can ease the searing pain I am feeling. My physicians and nurses are constantly asking me to take SOMETHING to ease the pain. I don't do it. I can't believe how petty some of you are. Liev and Naomi...come on! I have had an incredible life & have shared some of it with all of you. Some of you appreciate it, some don't. When the day comes I take the advice of a ghetto head to stop posting my thoughts on this site, you will be getting a message from my daughter telling all of you I died. Get a life little girl. Instead of spending all day on-line take a language class. Go to an AA meeting. Just don't lecture ME about what I can say and can't say. Have a great weekend.

You are a disgusting piece of shit. What's sad is that while loathsome people like you roam the Earth - wonderful, compassionate, thoughtful and caring people die, every fucking day.

poppyman--Val Kilmer doesn't agree with you. He posted a rant today about Bourdain's death. This is a passing NO ONE saw coming. NYC, his stomping grounds, is awash with comments from his famous and not-so-famous chef friends. N Y Post has some interesting ones. One from a guy whose restaurant he was in last Saturday. I just want someone, anyone, to get to the bottom of this 'suicide' because no one is buying it. Where is the suicide note? I am still shaking from the shock.

Lucy said...

Boo -
Don't flatter yourself. Nobody is exerting anything on you. You're an old nobody laying in a hospital room and nobody cares. We're just responding to your repeated stupidity. I've seen a few of your posts on here and you fancy yourself as a sort of Manhattan socialite of sorts, and meanwhile you're just a big old nobody. Big deal - lost of Manhattanites spot celebs on the street, the difference is you talk to them like a thirsty moron and everyone else knows to just leave them alone. By they way, nobody likes your stories because they're not that cool or interesting.

Lucy said...

And cut the disbelief and shaking act. Anthony had major addiction issues for a very long time. I guess that just makes him "ghetto" though, right? You seem like a rotten person with your outlook on those who have problems; maybe karma is the reason you are rotting away miserably in a hospital bed.

Lucy said...

It's also completely ironic you think addicts are "ghetto" when the person who is alleged to have started this site in the first place had once of the most documented substance abuse problems in Hollywood history and also has one of the biggest comeback stories of all time. I so wish he'd come back and comment on this thread because he'd put you in your place so fast your rotten little head would be spinning.

palmettobug said...

Boo Hearne, why, if you hate people with addiction issues, are you acting like this junkie/crackhead/alcoholic who just killed himself was a saint, and pretending that it is effecting you personally? You failed to read the many accounts from his own mouth of him on the floor in a cocaine-induced psychosis going through the rug for crumbs of what he thought was crack, and smoking paint chips and food crumbs, thinking he had found some? Did you fail to read his own accounts of his ten year heroin habit? You sound like a ridiculous liar boasting about not accepting pain medicine--want to know why the hospital demands you have pain medication after surgery, you fucking moron? Because you are at high risk for a cerebral hemorrhage or cardiac arrest from pain and elevated blood pressure, especially after a surgery, and they don't want you dying on their premises from a fully preventable death, needlessly sucking up their resources for a code red when you flatline from "searing" pain. But please, be my guest to stroke out and end up a vegetable for absolutely no reason, you will have really shown your iron will to those street ghetto druggies when you can no longer speak, see, or type stupid ass shit on blogs. About multi-millionaire celebrities who hated their lives so much, they hung themselves leaving behind young girls to cope with the disgrace of their deaths. I'm sure your daughter will appreciate what her selfish ignorant mother did to her when she is stuck taking care of a cabbage. And don't you DARE mock the agony and suffering of sick people in pain, who are dying from cancer or any number of horrific diseases and injuries, who are disfigured from lymphedema and going through the agony of not being able to breathe, but who also live in the 21st century and do not want to die without dignity, so they take pain medication.

Mango said...

If anyone had a lust for life, it was Bourdain, this is why his suicide is so shocking. RIP.

Poor Mick said...

He was idiosyncratic enough that you could riff on his prose style forever, but it was a formula that obviously worked. He definitely had a streak of Thompson in him, probably on purpose, right down to speaking the same deep-seated disgust with Henry Kissinger that most upstanding citizens feel. The Lebanon bombing, visiting Gaza; it's not surprising there's a lot of love for him, and thus a lot of grief. He did what he wanted, built a pretty solid circle of friends and acquaintances, and did more than most people in his position as a celebrity chef would ever do. RIP.

Captivagrl said...

Depression is a disease, very painful and sometimes deadly. Sadly, some of the drugs prescribed to patients can cause increased suicidal thoughts. Mental illness is so misunderstood and stigmatized in our country.

Sekrit said...

I've been in a daze of sorts since I first heard. So awful.

fionafab said...

Has there ever been anyone who posted on this site who has engendered the degree of hatred exhibited towards me? I think not. Also, there are posters here who care for me and I, them. I shared your comments Lucy et al with friends tonight and they are aghast. This is a gossip site, they said to me. It is cotton candy for the brain. Wow! You have really stirred the drug addicts into a frenzy. Enty Lawyer was a stoner who turned his life around? God bless him. He is a Truth Seeker and found the right Path in life. All those months I did not post and you did I was working and writing and photographing Nature out West. I was re-building my ranch. I was venturing into Mexico and photographing Mexican children. I was visiting my boyfriend in Paris. Riding horses in England & Spain, All the while you were on-line for hours commenting on people you don't know & will never meet. Do you really think I care what people think of me on this site? I have sufficient 'friends' who welcomed me back last week and who enjoy my stories to make it all worthwhile. I feel terribly, terribly sorry for those of you who have vomited all of this vitriol on this page. Hope you feel better now. After I am released from the hospital I will return to my happy, productive and creative life. And you will continue to post on CDAN. If this makes your life worthwhile then Enty Lawyer is doing his/her job. God Bless.

Rosie riveter said...

Boo has been pretty consistent with posting when shes in range and staying off when not- she has a different slant on the world and opinionated because shes seen a lot. Also, she certainly appears to be in a different demograph than a lot of us. I think her stories are very interesting. The "grab your cane or go to bed" shtick is kinda old... You people want to run to the defenses of men saying they're women/women saying theyre men/everyone claiming theyre "ZE" (bigots/phobes/ists)and jumping all over people dare they call someone chubby(fat shaming) yet millenials can be AGEIST all day long. (I died a little inside just writing that word)
It doesnt seem fair to protect EVERY demography except what suits you- cant you be tolerant about *absolutely everything* consistently?
Full disclosure, I disagree with the addicts are ghetto statement as well as the refusal of all meds just to take that moral high ground. I recently asked for a friends epidural when she refused it at the hospital,and firmly believe in doing what it takes to be without pain. (Boo, you should consider marijuana)
Anyway. Just an observation here. Tolerance, executed in fairness, should be across the entire field.

Unknown said...

I just read through every single comment on this thread and am left sickened. Sickened and appalled that someone in 2018 would be calling people with substance abuse issues “ghetto”. What the absolute f*ck. And then you have people defending her because she’s “in a different demographic”?! Wow, wow, wow. I have lost all hope for humanity.

Rosie riveter said...

Sigh
Ive lost all hope for our new generations reading comprehension. I suppose if you truly read every single comment like you said then you wouldn't of come to the conclusion you did.
Wait...then again...in a way you just validated my observation of "picking and choosing" didnt you? (Thank you)
I would suggest going back months, years even, to get the full context of some of our comments. Or don't. No matter to me. *Smiley face*
Chin up, young millennial. If you put your phone down and look Up, you'll see that people really are decent

Lucy said...

Yeah, so I'm 37 and have been reading this site since its inception. Also, I just went to Alyssa's google profile and she graduated college in 2000. Soooooo.....unless she's lying about her college graduation year, not a millennial either, luv.

Rosie riveter said...

Oh that makes sense. I'm not a millennial either, and so therefore not blindly accepting and tolerant of absolutely everything.
(I think its bullshit)
As far as the go back amd read part...it wasnt to you, it was to alyssa. If she would do that she would see that my comment of "in a different demographic" was just an observation that over the course of her hundreds of posts, Boo certainly has been different than most.
She also missed when I said I disagreed with the ghetto remark.
I'm not ghetto either, and certainly had my fair share of drugs.
So if y'all arent millenials, I stand corrected. Judge on! Fellow genX!

Lucy said...

Lucy said...

Sorry, but after what Boo said on this post about addicts, Alyssa doesn't need to read a single other post from her (nor does she want to) to get an idea of the type of person Boo is. So if that's "judging", we will continue to judge on". Also, if she is so wonderful and worldly, why did 3 other people besides myself condemn her words on this post besides me? You talk about her like she's so amazing, yet if you've done your "fair share of drugs" like you say you have, she just considers you "ghetto" anyways. SMH.

I will not be back again so don't bother responding because not only am I bored with the back and forth, I also have to go write and photograph nature out west, re-build my ranch, venture to Mexico and photograph Mexican children, visit my boyfriend in Paris, and finally, ride horses in England & Spain.

Ciao for now!

Rosie riveter said...

Lol
Ok, that was a little funny.
Ciao

palmettobug said...

Lucy, Boo just called ALL of us drug addicts! Boo wrote: "This is a gossip site, they said to me. It is cotton candy for the brain. Wow! YOU HAVE REALLY STIRRED THE DRUG ADDICTS INTO A FRENZY." So, we are all drug addicts now? Boo is an offensive bully. She could go anywhere with her obnoxious passive-aggressive behaviour--to a blog for gossip, to a cancer ward, to a restaurant kitchen, to a post-op surgery unit--and proceed to announce to everyone she encounters that she has determined that they are all 'drug addicts,' and/or "ghetto," and she will incite precisely the same response she has received here, if not worse. There are people who are in despair this very moment, from depression, from chronic pain from illness, from their own substance abuse issues or those of a loved one, who are on the brink emotionally or mentally, and it is people like her who are there to push them right over the edge. In the comment section of a story about a man who just committed suicide after decades of substance abuse issues? Seeking to intentionally provoke by way of outrageous insult, being pretentious, rude, judgemental, and obtuse, is inappropriate behaviour for any age group.

Raspy said...

You're an insane liar who makes stuff up for attention online. Normally I'd pity someone like you but you're so damn annoying I can't.

KristyKreme17 said...

Boo, you’re acting holier than thou over drug addicts, yet your beloved Anthony was a heroin addict. Make up your mind.

Mary Lamb said...

Why doesn't everyone just ease up a bit. Leave Boo alone. You too will be there one day, remember that. She used 'ghetto' as meaning 'low rent' and she used it originally meaning that ODing was a 'low rent' way of killing yourself. If you take that as a bigoted term, remember that there are plenty of white 'ghettos', along with every other race. As I said, that's not how she meant it anyway.
After that, she was baited and used it again, but what do you expect after being attacked.
She was doubting/questioning his committing suicide and how the authorities are so sure. So do I and hope that in the coming days those questions will be answered.
I have no reason to believe anything she says is a lie. Do you think everyone has had a boring life and that no one has hobnobbed with the rich and famous who posts on this site and others? Think again.

Look, if you didn't like Anthony Bourdain, that's fine but why the hell you would post your nasty comments WHEN HE DIED is beyond me. He was an incredibly intelligent, insightful, voraciously curious, hilarious, talented writer and story teller and compassionate man who many, many people admired and, dare I say, loved.
Those of you who would criticize his politics, too freaking bad. You'd do yourself well to actually read his books and catch his shows and once you had, I'd dare you to find him anything but provocative, despite your views, and in the best possible way.

Mary Lamb said...

And I'd like to add that he was an addict who had kicked the addiction, in his words. Also in his own words, he had his demons.
He was human and he lived more deliciously than most people could ever dream to. Cheers, Anthony. RIP.

Christina said...

Mary Lamb, I agree with your sentiments. He was a wonderful human being. Who knows what the reason is for his check out. Maybe he was just diagnosed with a horrible illness like ALS and didn't want to put his family through that? We may find out, we may never know... Only one thing is fact -- he's the only reason I ever watched CNN. Anthony, you will be missed!

Itttt said...

"I'm seeing connections between him and Marina, with Haiti + Penn and the C Foundation, as well as CNN which is all CIA'd up."

Great catch on his last tweet linking to the Rising Sun Blues (King Kong Remix) for the Hong Kong Parts Unknown. He stated "THIS song from the score from tonight's HONK KONG @PartsUnknownCNN is gonna stay with me." Recall that the 1964 song by The Animals is about the "House of the Rising Sun" in New Orleans, inferred to be the Horror House on St. Charles.

Lyrics
"There is a house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun
And its been the ruins of many a poor boy
And god I know I'm one"

Also, with regards to Hillary Clinton, Bourdain himself posted these tweets:

"know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She's not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years"

Back in October of 2017, CNN’s Bourdain made that statement regarding Harvey Weinstein, suggesting Hillary Clinton had to know of his history of being a sexual predator. Bourdain’s girlfriend, actress Asia Argento, accused Weinstein of raping her.

The tweet angered Hillary spokesman, Brian Fallon. He took to Twitter to tell Bourdain to “eat a scorpion.”

Just last month, on May 2nd, Anthony Bourdain tweeted this:

"...and I am in no way an HRC fan. I've been on the receiving end of her operatives' wrath. And it ain't fun"

So infer away what you will about all of this...I don't know what to make of it. BUT...as far as suicides are concerned:
