Fans Say Andy Cohen Should Be ‘Fired’ After Bill de Blasio Rant

Getty Images Andy Cohen was drunk on New Year's Eve and fans are calling for him to be fired.

Andy Cohen co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve special alongside his pal Anderson Cooper, and, like many years past, Cohen got drunk during the broadcast.

While it seems as though producers are all for Cohen and Cooper living it up on New Year’s Eve, this year’s show caused some fans to wonder if Cohen would be fired by the network — in so much as he wouldn’t be invited back to host at the end of 2022. Some even wonder if he’d be let go from Bravo after his scathing rant about former New York mayor Bill de Blasio.

“Watching Mayor de Blasio go on his ‘victory lap dance’ after four years as the crappiest term of the mayor of New York,” Cohen began. “Don’t go on a rant,” Cooper pleaded.

“The only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been. So, sayonara sucka,” Cohen continued.

Many fans loved watching Cohen and Cooper close out the year, but some said Cohen took things too far this year — and some even called for him to be fired. Many pointed out that comedian Kathy Griffin was fired after a satire about Donald Trump — and that Cohen’s rant isn’t too far off.

Here’s what you need to know:

Commenters on Twitter Said Cohen Should Be Fired

Cohen received plenty of positive feedback for keeping people entertained on New Year’s Eve, and many found him hilarious. There is something special in the dynamic between Cohen and Cooper, and many social media users, especially on Reddit, couldn’t get enough.

However, others have taken to social media to slam Cohen.

“Embarrassing. You should be fired! Anyone else acting so carelessly in an employment situation would lose their job. And to think [you’re] a parent,” one Twitter user wrote, tagging Cohen.

“When is Andy Cohen going to be sent to rehab and quietly fired?” another questioned.

“You should be fired and never work in the industry again. You were disgraceful and disrespectful to the Mayor and all Americans,” another tweet read.

“If I had ever gotten drunk like that at a sales meeting (not on TV), I would’ve been fired. The few people who did get drunk at company meetings weren’t around long,” a fourth Twitter user pointed out.

Cohen Joked About His Viral Rant

Cohen didn’t seem too concerned about the things he said when he woke up on January 1, 2022. In fact, the “Watch What Happens Live!” host took to social media to say that he was a bit “over-served.”

“I was a hair over-served last night, but man did I have fun! I hope you did too. Happy New Year everybody,” he captioned an Instagram post.

Cohen has also been sharing other posts about the night on his Instagram Stories, including a Charlie Brown voice-over that someone did of his de Blasio rant. Cohen doesn’t seem at all concerned about the things that he said — or his future on TV.

Neither CNN nor Bravo has made any comment about Cohen’s New Year’s Eve comments or his future with either company.

Andy has a point about DeBlasio or w/e his name is BUT what did he say about Ryan??? BTW: what Kathy Griffin did is nowhere near what Andy did “a hair overserved.”

This cancel culture thing has become beyond ridiculous. 1. I’m pretty sure most people agree with him that DeBlasio was a crap mayor. 2. Who really cares? It’s his opinion; don’t watch next year if you don’t like him. 3. Relax.4.Relax 5. It was “THE” best moment of 2021; many liked it; again, who really cares?

Pretty sure he’s allowed to have an opinion. Cancel culture really needs to end. Don’t like him or his opinion than don’t watch his shows.
