On Kathy Griffin Thursday night, Anderson Cooper talked about how a passenger aboard his flight from New York to LA was trying to photograph him at 6 am in the morning with his iPhone while Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir was seated next to him.
“Normally I would just be like, ‘We’re not going to win this one,’ but I’ve lately become emboldened,” Cooper told Griffin in the exclusive video clip (with some profanity) below.
“I grabbed the guy on the shoulder and I said something to the effect of, ‘Bitch, what … are you doing?’”
“It was one of those things, as soon as I said, I was like ‘I can’t believe I said this to this guy,’” he concluded. LAT
Lesson learned. Don’t take pictures of Anderson Cooper while he’s trying to sleep on an airplane at 6 a.m. in the morning unless you want him to go all street on you. Did he say this using his best Chris Tucker impression? Because that would have been cool. Even cooler if Johnny Weir was his peanut gallery and started getting all street too saying stuff like, “Aw, naw you di’nt. You gonna get it now.”
