The man who brought out the 1 percent term …”DEATH OF ANTHONY BOURDAIN?”

Spread the word
Anthony Bourdain, the CNN man who came to Trinidad and got Mario Sabga-Aboud to say that the one-percent of the Syrians controlled Trinidad and Tobago, has committed suicide by hanging himself in a hotel in France on Friday morning.

Bourdain, the Emmy-winning host of CNN‘s “Parts Unknown,” was 61.

On Friday morning, CNN host, Brian Stelter, said on air that Bourdain hanged himself in his hotel room in France.

Bourdain came to Trinidad in 2017 and later aired a 42-minute  video on June 18, 2017 about the life and style of the people of this country. He later submitted the following:

“A trip to the Caribbean uncovers how the island of Trinidad has turned a history of colonialism and slavery into a non-stop celebration of multicultural food, music and good times. Bourdain visits Port-of-Spain, a vibrant city of African, Indian, Chinese and Middle Eastern influence, where he dines on curried duck, doubles (floppy Indian bread topped with curry chickpeas, mango) and fish in tahini sauce with Trinidadians of contrasting cultures. While the Carnival lifestyle revolves around liming (hanging out) and whining (dancing), Bourdain questions the extent to which this non-stop bacchanal distracts residents from the the country’s growing list of social ills.”

It was during his visit to Trinidad, he had lunch with members of the Syrian community during which Mario Sabga-Aboud said that the one percent of Syrians controlled the economy of Trinidad and Tobago.

That statement had a serious back lash causing Sabga-Aboud to apologize to the people of this country. That statement stuck like glue in this country.

So why did Bourdain kill himself? What caused Bourdain to take that drastic way out? Was he ill? Was it as a result of a relationship gone sour? The truth will eventually come out. Maybe CNN might do the story!

CNN in a statement said, “It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain.

“His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

Bourdain, who was in France working on an upcoming episode of “Parts Unknown”, was found unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning by his friend Eric Ripert, according to the network.

Ripert, whose French restaurant Le Bernardin in Manhattan boasts a top Michelin three-star rating, frequently appeared alongside Bourdain on “Parts Unknown” and made cameos on some of his earlier TV shows.

Bourdain was twice divorced. He was married to Ottavia Busia from 2007 to 2016 and Nancy Putkoski from 1985 to 2005.

He leaves behind one daughter, Ariane, whom he had with Busia.

The celebrity chef was dating Italian actress Asia Argento — who has accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and has since become one of his most vocal victims.
