Anderson Cooper Burns Some Dolt on Twitter While Dodging Bombs in Gaza

Anderson Cooper is known for diving headfirst into a warzone to get to the facts and report the real story. And now he’s known for doing the exact same thing on Twitter after he let some “chocoholic” from Los Angeles have it on the social media site.

Of course, this means that we will now be rescuing Anderson from the Gaza strip ourselves and keeping him safely in our pocket.

Surrounded by bomb explosions, the Coop tweeted from Gaza on Monday that rockets were being fired near the same building that had been hit by Israeli missiles earlier. As always, war reporting is a dangerous job, but Cooper is willing to do what it takes.

What isn’t as dangerous, but should clearly be done with caution, is slinging poo at him on Twitter.

A Cooper follower – and self-proclaimed “social media junkie” – responded to one of his tweets, saying he should report a fair story with “facts.”

And suddenly, snark missiles flew from inside Cooper’s Twitter account. He told this @Pamela_Weiss that reporting the story is exactly what he was doing and asked the hard-hitting question, “Do you actually think before you tweet?”

Then, ever the journalist, Cooper began digging through Weiss’ Twitter history, which enabled him to come up with this final zinger: “Perhaps spend less time tweeting about coconut flan and more time actually following the news.”

Somehow we have to get this man to reproduce.
