    I loved him for very specific qualities and his work. It's always terribly sad when older people off themselves. I think it's the evidence that you can make it through decades of life(and in his case, years and years of various successes) yet still find yourself hopeless and desperate and feeling unable to go on enough that you'll go through with ending your life. It's tragic and hopeless.

    Funnily enough, he remains inspiring and his shows are still available to expose more people to the world when they might not get to in their actual lives.

    RIP and thank you for all you gave to the world. The deaths of public figures usually don't hit me at all, but his hits me pretty hard.

    I bet he was killed. Probably a CIA agent using his shows as a cover

    SUICIDE HOTLINE? Don't call this, call someone who really loves and knows you. You mean more to them than a stranger.

    He left an 11 year old girl to deal with life without a father. He's was a selfish coward that doesn't deserve to be honored. My only sympathy goes out to his family that has to pick up the pieces after he destroyed their lives.

    I'm with Owen Benjamin on this one- please look up his video entitled "Anthony Bourdain is a coward", it's heartbreaking. The way people are glorifying this man is disgusting- he had an interesting life and he died exactly how he wanted- we should all be so lucky. And now all these people exploiting his suicide- ugh, no wonder we have shows like "13 Reasons Why"

    “Be a traveller, not a tourist”
    “Chicken Mcnuggets the worst food in the world”…….something like that and I agree.

    I don’t understand a man whom appears to have everything in life could do such a thing. Not like me whom has absolutely nothing and nothing to show for it. Rip.

    Still think his girl friend Asia cheated on him and maybe push him over the edge which lead to this. She had a deleted tweet that said something like "fuck everyone ".

    Anthony Burdain used to get paid very well to be on vacation. The ultimate job…what we all need is a vacation from the devil and those demonic voices…GOD is the only one that defeats depresion

    I think living in the public eye, especially on social media can cause overwhelming levels of depression

    In case you don't feel like watching this whole video the thing you might not know about Bourdain was that he played Paul on The Wonder Years.
