Anderson Cooper finds time to shut down Twitter critics even when embedded in Gaza

Anderson Cooper has had it up to here with random Twitter users questioning his reporting and accusing him of being biased. Though CNN’s silveriest fox is currently dodging bombs in explosion-ravaged Gaza, he’s still finding time to write sassy replies to those who have been tweeting criticisms at him – users like self-professed “social butterfly” and “chocololic” Pamela Weiss, who asked Cooper why he hasn’t been “report[ing] facts” about “the rockets being fired FROM Gaza?!?”:

Cooper followed that sarcastic message with another zinger referencing one of Weiss’s old tweets:

Then there was “proud wife and mother of 4” Tammy Smith, who accused Cooper of ignoring “The Embassy killings.” She, too, found out that this fox has claws:

Really, the main reason we love these tweets is that they indicate The Coops is still safe. Keep on snarking, Anderson – we want to make sure you return to American shores in one piece.
