Anderson Cooper says Haitian Adoption Story 'False'


I reached out to Anderson Cooper for response following a report in the National Enquirer that he had adopted a Haitian orphan after being moved by the suffering there following the devastating earthquake.

Said Cooper to Towleroad: "While the plight of children in Haiti has touched us all, and I continue to cover the situation there closely, stories about me adopting a baby are false. I am not adopting a child, Haitian or otherwise."

  1. I think AC did the closest thing to a coming out by just correcting the story about the adoption.

  2. Whenever Anderson Cooper is the topic of a post, some queens' venomous fangs come out.

    You can cut the jealousy with a knife.

  3. So, just who is it that doesn't know that the Coop is gay?

  4. Those two must melt the sidewalk when they walk down the street together in NYC, they're so hot. No wonder they have to live in a damn firehouse.

  5. Just because someone doesn't say that they are gay doesn't mean they are keeping homophobia alive....
    It's 2010. Why should people have to state their sexual status at all. It shouldn't matter.

    Has Anderson Cooper ever denied that he was gay? That would be different but I haven't actually read that.

  6. We need to remember that each of us must make the decision to come out of the closet at our own speed, and respect it. If coming out puts AC at risk in his work around the world, then we should respect his decision even more. As far as being complicit in homophobia by staying in the closet, there are some cultures, and societies where being out will not change a thing, and might end up getting you killed, e.g. Jamaica. I for one would not like to lose AC that way. So, let AC be AC.

  7. Gay kids know how to work the internet, you know. Anderson lives his regular life as an openly gay man and it gets talked about online and in the gay press all the time. He's been outed a few thousand times.

    Whether they have any interest or not, gay kids find out that Anderson Cooper is gay and he is by all appearances happy with his gay personal life and his successful career.

  8. As if the other countries don't know he's gay. duh. And, if he so much as whispered "I'm gay", the whole homophobic hetero population of the US-of-A would scream that he is "shoving it down their throats" Why the hell would he bother? He might be standing in the closet but the doors are wide open. At least he's no hypocrite. Leave him alone.
