Anderson Cooper Appears in Drag in Homage to Cher
This Is CNN? Anderson Cooper Giggles Over Photo of Self as Drag Queen (NewsBusters)
Is this CNN's idea of professionalism? Anderson Cooper is a prime-time anchor and face of CNN, but he giggled over a photo-shopped picture of himself as a drag queen on the June 2 Anderson Cooper 360.
Cooper was confessing his "creepy fan girl" obsession over music star Cher. "[Y]ou try keeping a 46-year-old gay man away from Cher," he quipped. When Cooper joked he was a "part-time Cher impersonator," CNN displayed a photo-shopped picture of him as a drag-queen.
