Anderson Cooper scolded a young Sun News contributor for asking him to take a “selfie” near the scene of the Ottawa shooting Wednesday night.
The CNN host flew into Canada’s capital yesterday to report from the National War Memorial where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot dead while serving as an honour guard.
When Cooper took a break from his live coverage, Vandon Gene, who has worked for the Sun News Network for the past six months, asked the American journalist to take a photo with him.
Cooper refused. When Gene continued to urge him to take a picture, an aghast Cooper scolded the young reporter and told him to “have a little respect for what happened here today.”
