Anthony Bourdain Dead: Chrissy Teigen, Gordon Ramsay, More React

Celebrities and chefs took to social media with heartfelt tributes about Anthony Bourdain, who died at the age of 61 on Friday, June 8.

The culinary expert and longtime TV personality was found unresponsive in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France, where he was shooting an upcoming episode of his CNN travel and food show, Parts Unknown. The network reported “with extraordinary sadness” that the cause of death was suicide by hanging.

Chrissy Teigen was one of the first stars to send her condolences. “Anthony. One of my idols. Unapologetic, passionate and one of the best storytellers on the planet,” the Cravings cookbook author, 32, tweeted. “Thank you for making food so exciting. And always standing up for everything right. Horrible. Why why why. Be at peace now.”
