Anderson Cooper Shuts Down Andy Cohen’s Mean Tweeters on ‘WWHL’


Don’t mess with the Silver Fox!

On Wednesday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live starring guests Anderson Cooper and Kelly Ripa, host Andy Cohen learned the art of responding to mean tweets. In a segment titled “Shady Coops,” the CNN anchor teaches the Bravo host how to defend himself against some of his worst social media bullies, and he definitely doesn’t hold back.

“You have to read the person’s Twitter history, because then you really get a sense and you can personalize your response,” Anderson advised.

Here’s what the journalist had to say to Andy’s biggest critics:

@LilPoundCake1: “Because Andy is a shady bitch. He’ll do anything to giggle like a school girl…that is, until the s–t hits the fan.”

“After reading the person’s Twitter history, I had two responses: One is, ‘@LilPoundCake1, I’m guessing from your bitterness you eat more than just a little pound cake.’ The only other thing I thought is that not even Bow Wow uses the moniker Lil anymore. Time to update.”

@BitterJosh: “Andy Cohen + use of daddy = vomit in my mouth?”

“What I found interesting and what I would say to @BitterJosh is that when you hinted in a tweet on April 4 of this year that your boss had disregard for morals and ethics and that he overshares, that doesn’t seem like a great idea for career advancement.”

@Hurricanesjc: “@Andy Are you really that famous that people want to waste their hard earned money on buying your book? Not me.”

“This one I wouldn’t even respond to because I really don’t respond to people who don’t have a photo of themselves or actually use their real name, because I just think they’re cowards. Frankly, their tweets were so moronic and boring and offensive and racist. The only thing I could think of was this person has more than 13,000 tweets and 54 followers. It’s not a great ratio.”
