Twitter Tantrum After Selfie Refusal On Tragic Day

Suzanne Robertson
A self-described "aspiring journalist" called Cooper an "ass" on Twitter.


"Aspiring journalist" Vandon Gene wanted a selfie with Anderson Cooper on the day a terrorist shot and killed a soldier at Parliament Hill in Canada. 

In a somber and tense atmosphere, Cooper declined the selfie request. He said that "it seems wildly inappropriate" to take a photo on a day someone was killed in such a shocking and brutal way. 

Instead of accepting Cooper's refusal, the "aspiring journalist" had a Twitter tantrum and was quickly dressed down by the real journalist. 

Vandon quickly apologized. Twice. 

Good luck with your career Vandon!
