Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper is currently in Gaza covering the Israel-Hamas conflict.

But on Twitter, the CNN host is waging a bit of a conflict of his own by responding to some critical and even hateful tweets.

Here's just a sampling:

When self-described foodie @Pamela_Weiss asked Cooper to "Report a fair story. Report facts. Why not talk about the rockets being fired FROM Gaza?!?" he replied: "ummmm.... I just did that and have been doing that repeatedly on twitter and on tv. Do you actually think before you tweet?" and "@Pamela_Weiss perhaps spend less time tweeting about coconut flan and more time actually following the news."

Meanwhile, @Rabbi_Sykes wrote, "May just stop watching #CNN. Now @andersoncooper almost apologized for #Hamas dragging a dead 'Spy' for #Israel & yelling God is great! Oy!" Cooper then responded, "@Rabbi_Sykes excuse me, but how am I apologizing for Hamas by reporting them dragging a body through the streets? That is deeply offensive."

And when one person named @RetireLeo attacked Cooper's sexual orientation by tweeting, "Didn't Cooper admit he was gay, if so let's let the Paelstians know and see what happens," the silver fox hit back with, "wow, tough words from an anon Internet troll. why not use your name and photo, coward? Have some more fritos and keep typing."
