We have lost one of the greatest storytellers in the world Anthony Bourdain. He took us around the world sharing food culture and mostly the connection between people. He will be missed.

Charles Robinson on Twitter

Anthony Bourdain introduced us to the people we would pass by on our own street, our own neighborhood and our own city. He connected us with war and poverty and humanity abroad, but he also showed us the value in a journey only a few feet away.

Bryan Cranston on Twitter

According to AFSP, there are nearly 45,000 suicides every year in the US. Shocking. I was saddened to hear of the deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. RIP. It illustrates that success is not immune to depression.

One of my dreams was to sip wine and eat outrageously good food with Anthony Bourdain. His book, Kitchen Confidential, was a game changer for me. I don't even know what to say https://t.co/69HUZyApq7

Linda Sarsour on Twitter

Kate Spade and now Anthony Bourdain? How many people around us, in our families, in our workplaces, in our movements are struggling so much they would take their own lives and we are not paying attention? Look after one another. Love. Be kind. Be gentle.

Pam Grier Ph.D on Twitter

Anthony Bourdain, 61 was very dear to me. He was an educator, he was such a foodie who shared his travels, wisdom and loved him some Foxy Brown. To his family, Peace be still.

Ira on Twitter

To inhabit so many souls, fingertips concocting a meal in countless kitchens, while his own was at unrest. Bourdain inspired a verve that will accompany me on so many more adventures.


Ashley Nicole Black on Twitter

Also, one of the episodes of this food show turns into him interviewing a bunch of people about child abuse, and who else has ever done that?

Travel isn't always pretty. It isn't always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that's okay. The journey changes you; it should change you... You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind." - Anthony Bourdain #RIP

Gov. Mike Huckabee on Twitter

Anthony Bourdain's suicide a sobering reminder of how fragile life is and that we never know what's going on inside of another. Suicide is rarely a person acting, but rather being acted upon by the disease of clinical depression. We are all vulnerable. So very sad.

Pete Souza on Twitter

Tragic news about Anthony Bourdain. Such energy being in his presence. Hanoi, Vietnam 2015

Mia Farrow on Twitter

Maybe we all wanted to hang out with him. He was that cool, fun, frank, insightful. He introduced us to distant lands and to people with different traditions. And without ever preaching, he reminded us that we humans are far more alike than different. Thank you Anthony Bourdain

Ej Dickson on Twitter

Anthony Bourdain was my hero for many years. He was the one person who seemed like he was big enough and strong enough to take on anything, up to and including substance abuse and mental illness. But no one is bigger than their disease. This is sad proof of that.
