Anderson Cooper landed a one-tweet knockout of an anti-gay sportscaster who called him out.
Killing 'em with kindness. And tweets. (Getty)
What started as a tweet of support from Anderson Cooper to Derrick Gordon, the UMass sophmore who had just become the first openly gay college basketball player, ended with a first-round TKO of a yappy sports anchor.
Watching @flash2gordon speak about being out and proud, he is incredibly courageous and inspiring.— Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) April 10, 2014
That seemed to upset Damian Goddard, who decided to insert himself into the conversation and remind everyone why he works for an Canadian network no one has heard of.
Instead of wasting time trying to figure out what Goddard was #praying about, Anderson responded with a gentle sartorial shot across his chin.
.@heydamo with that tie and pocket square combo I am praying for you too my friend— Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) April 10, 2014
And that's when Goddard decided to tap out.
Yes, #GodIsLove. And #GoddardIsIdiot.
