Leave Anderson Cooper alone!
The CNN newsman just wanted to eat his meal in peace while out at a restaurant recently but couldn't because of a group at the table next to him who were secretly trying to take his photo!
We swear, it wasn't us!
Apparently snapping shots of Coop while he's eating is a MAJOR pet peeve of his! After a few flashes aimed in his direction, Anderson threw his napkin down and actually confronted the shutterbugs!
"You're being complete jerks. You're being incredibly rude! You should just be stand up and say to somebody you want to take a picture! Nobody I'm with wants to be on your stupid Facebook page!"
This just in: Anderson Cooper is one bad-ass, tough-talking mo fo!!!
Anderson admitted later that he felt bad for being rude to them, saying:
"I think I used some quite choice language. And then I sat back down and I felt so bad that I had been rude to them. All day long, I have been worried about this. I thought they would tweet something. They seemed shocked that I went up to them and I was so abrupt with them. I did say some pretty hostile words to them but I felt really, really bad."
So the lesson is: the next time you want a pic of Anderson Cooper out in public, just ask him! He's a super, sweet, nice guy!
Until you try to snap that shot without him knowing! Then you're in trouble!
