In what is thought to be the last interview with Anthony Bourdain, he doesn't hold back from saying what he really feels, even about people he supports. Particularly in light of his stance on the Me Too movement, Bourdain has little or no patience for men who believe it's okay to make unwanted advances to women who are clearly not interested.
Writer Maria Bustillos interviewed Bourdain for her new site Popula and, as she has published the conversation after his death, she felt compelled to mention that he seemed no different than ever. He was smoking again, but he mentioned that he regretted that, and he admitted to recently overdoing it with the partying (he had just returned from Cajun Mardi Gras, so that wasn't surprising). But at the end of the day, he was Anthony, curt, frank, and funny.
Bustillos covered a lot of ground with Bourdain, including talk of both Clintons, and Harvey Weinstein related to the Me Too movement. Bourdain says he was disappointed with the way Hillary Clinton briefly spoke out about the Weinstein matter, and he tweeted his distress.
"And I have to say, Hillary's interview with Fareed Zakaria was shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness."
"Know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She's not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years."
