Anderson Cooper may be able to laugh at himself, sometimes for like five minutes straight, but this was just not amusing.
On Thursday night’s Watch What Happens Live!, Anderson told bestie Andy Cohen all about his distaste for the “queened up” performance, saying:
“I’m not easily offended, but I didn’t think it was a very good├óΓé¼┬ª Seth Meyers did a spoof of me years ago that was really funny. I’m all for being spoofed. I thought it was a little, oddly, like, you know it was like the only thing he knew about me was that I’m gay, so he went with it.
Fellow guest Molly Ringwald tried to play devil’s advocate saying the portrayal was more stoic than over-the-top.

I got a little Truman Capote vibe. I thought it was a little snide.”
We’re inclined to side with the ACs — there are other ways to poke fun at someone aside from playing up stereotypes about their sexuality.
