The 13 Best Twitter Reactions to Anderson Cooper Announcing He is Gay

CNN host Anderson Cooper on Monday announced that he was gay, setting off a wave of *hilarious* reactions across the web. 

PolicyMic's own Alex Marin opined, "I don’t mean to say that CNN’s wonder boy Anderson Cooper acts like a stereotypical gay person, far from it. But the hysteria generated every time someone famous discloses his or her sexual orientation and preferences in public still cracks me up."

Well get ready to be cracked up even more:

Funny? Or is this a more serious issue?

PolicyMic's Marin continues: 

"But, in all honesty, the fact that we still pay so much attention to people’s sexualities in the era of Glee and DWTS is surprising to me. Seriously, who cares? The guy has admitted to fellow female reporters that their husbands “don’t have anything to worry about” repeatedly. He also has shared “flamboyant” moments with openly gay talk show host Ellen DeGeneres for years. To me, Anderson Cooper has cleverly lived his career in what The Advocate magazine has dubbed “the glass closet.” He's never denied anything. He just likes to enjoy privacy, just like anybody else (gay, straight or pansexual). It never occurred to me that he had to “come out” one way or the other."
