Reporter's 'Completely Inappropriate' Request Leaves Anderson Cooper Stunned: 'I Can't Believe Any Station Employs You

"...if you want to be a journalist, learn how to behave when covering a story."

Anderson Cooper tweeted out scathing criticism of a reporter Wednesday night after the journalist asked for a photograph at the same site a Canadian soldier was killed hours earlier.

Video of the incident showed Cooper tell "aspiring journalist" and Sun News contributor Vandon Gene that the request was "wildly inappropriate."

Gene initially uploaded the footage and then turned to Twitter to skewer Cooper.

Cooper was not afraid to fire back on Twitter, reiterating that he found his request "completely inappropriate" and even said it surprised him anyone would hire him as a reporter.

Gene has since removed his tweets and the original YouTube video of the incident. He also edited his Twitter biography, removing a previous reference to Sun News.
