Anderson Cooper Is In Hot Water

Anderson Cooper is just a few weeks into his new talk show and now he’s facing some heat and coping with a tragedy.

Gawker reports that a teenager is in a coma after one of Anderson’s producers encouraged him to record his reckless behavior for a show on the “teenage mind.” Producers asked the teen to film “the crazy stuff you do.” Gawker reports that the kid filmed himself skateboarding adventurously and fell, sustaining a severe head injury. He’s in a coma now.
The show issued a statement confirming that producers were working on a show about the science of the teenage brain, based on a National Geographic story. “As part of our routine process, we ask guests for video footage and photos. We did not provide the family with a camera. On the morning that they were supposed to travel to NYC, we learned that the teen had been injured. We are very concerned about him, and are thinking of him and his family at this time.”
