Did the Palestinians lose a good friend in Anthony Bourdain? These tweets appear to show a different side of the celebrity that the main stream media refused to show.
The Palestinians of Gaza have lost a good friend in Anthony Bourdain, whose integrity and basic human decency made his Parts Unknown episode on Gaza easily the best thing CNN has ever done on Palestine https://t.co/mdjHFTyDgP— Tony Karon (@TonyKaron) June 8, 2018
Anthony Bourdain is dead. A true loss. One of the few voices in #US media that gave nuanced, interesting views on #Lebanon & #Gaza. A personal hero of mine with his book(s), who inspired me to cook better as well.— Nabih (@nabihbulos) June 8, 2018
RIP Anthony Bourdain. He did right by Africans in his TV programs. Like this https://t.co/MZFGQYmXwo— IG: @Africasacountry (@africasacountry) June 8, 2018
Bourdain on Palestine: It’s a measure I guess of how twisted and shallow our depiction of a people is that these images come as a shock to so many. The world has visited many terrible things on the Palestinian people, none more shameful than robbing them of their basic humanity.— Diana Buttu (@dianabuttu) June 8, 2018
For a Black man that has walked the plank for being highly critical of the food world so white, #AnthonyBourdain was special. He called Africa the cradle of civilization, took his cameras to Haiti, honored the hood with Snoop, broke bread with Obama like a human being...— Michael W. Twitty (@KosherSoul) June 8, 2018
#AnthonyBourdain covered the crises in Puerto Rico with respect- a reminder of what honest media can do- he gave a platform to food sovereignty work in PR & let all know US policies are starving our ppl to serve US corporate interests- his passing is a real loss -may he RIP🌻— Elizabeth Yeampierre (@yeampierre) June 8, 2018
We finished filming at midnight. A driver came to pick up #AnthonyBourdain. He idled for a good 20 minutes as Tony talked to at least a dozen fans who happened to be walking Cesar Chavez at midnight and saw him. Talked to EVERY SINGLE ONE. And listened— GustavoArellano (@GustavoArellano) June 8, 2018
