    Incredibly sad. Suicide apparently. What is going on? Celebrities are dropping like flies.

    I've been watching his tv shows since I was a kid. So many celebrities suffering from depression and anxiety. Sad beyond words.

    This is heartbreaking. I loved his shows. My favourite celebrity chef and one of my favourite presenters overall.

    Agree with all of you. Very sad indeed. I'm almost in shock. Seriously loved his style.

    Sad for me too. In the early part of my career I spent years on the road and in lots of interesting places. Bourdain's shows always revived memories for me, not about the exotic food but for the interesting places and people you find in parts unknown.

    RIP Mr. Bourdain.

    Check out his Quebec episode, calling all English speaking Canadians racist pigs...

    ahh man, don't be dissing la belle province
    one day they might actually go
    that would be bad for us
    great place, don't wish it away

    I really enjoyed that episode

    edit: as I've had the day to settle with this
    the less I feel settled
    everyone you meet has a hidden internal struggle
    sad, but it's as human as we can get

    There was some discussion he had struggled with substance problems, and alleged mental health challenges. Living the dream but only on the outside.

    I was a really big fan of his style and presentations. RIP finally Mr. Bourdain

    Still waters run deep etc. A lot of people have the ability to put on a smile and play the part and then suddenly Kaboom. I know of a few. Afterwards it's "Why? They had everything" and all the other cliches.

    The most creative, artistic and driven are usually wound pretty tight. They have everything except stability.

    Having seen the the leftovers of kids growing up minus a parent , and parents soldiering on without a child, suicide has more than one victim. It truly is a horrible thing.

    I've known a few highly successful people in business who have committed suicide. I think success brings a lot of other issues for some, like depression, anxiety, etc.... Robin Williams, Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, etc., all seemed to struggle with their dark side.

    RIP Anthony.
