Anderson Cooper is over in Gaza at the moment to report on the Israel/Hamas conflict. But not everyone is happy with the job the CNN anchor has been doing, and some have even used Twitter to express their frustration. But Cooper isn't taking the criticism lightly.
"Foodie" @Pamela_Weiss sent Cooper a tweet saying "Report a fair story. Report facts. Why not talk about the rockets being fired FROM Gaza?!?" He responded with "ummmm.... I just did that and have beendoing repeatedly on twitter and on tv. Do you actually think before you tweet?" before adding "perhaps spend less time tweeting about coconut flan and more time actually following the news."
User @Rabbi_Sykes said "May just stop watching #CNN. Now @andersoncooper almost apologized for #Hamas dragging a dead 'Spy' for #Israel & yelling God is great! Oy!" Cooper's response was "excuse me, but how am I apologizing for Hamas by reporting them dragging a dead body through the streets? That is deeply offensive."
More abusive was a troll account who said "Didn't Cooper admit he was gay, if so let's let the Paelstians know and see what happens." Cooper replied with "wow, tough words from an anon Internet troll. why not use your name and photo, coward? Have some more fritos and keep typing." Was Cooper right to defend himself?
