When Anderson Cooper isn't dodging explosions in Gaza (see video below), he's going off on Twitter followers who accuse him of covering the Israel-Hamas conflict unfairly.

Pamela Weiss found this out first hand earlier in the week when she ripped his reporting from the Middle East. In response, he dropped a Twitter bomb of sorts on her.

Weiss, a self-described "social media junkie" and "foodie," criticized his story an Israeli air strike on a media center, writing "Report a fair story. Report facts."

Amazingly, AC noticed and responded: "ummmm.... I just did that and have been doing that repeatedly on twitter and on tv. Do you actually think before you tweet?"

In a thoughtful, well-reasoned statement, Anderson Cooper came out as a proud gay man today, saying:

"Recently I’ve begun to consider whether the unintended outcomes of maintaining my privacy outweigh personal and professional principle. It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something - something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid.

"This is distressing because it is simply not true."

In response to the (not surprising) reveal, many celebrities have taken to Twitter and sent the CNN anchor their best wishes. A sampling is below:

Neil Patrick Harris: “Good for you, @AndersonCooper. You’re awesome.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: “One of the reasons I look up to my friend @andersoncooper is his amazing eloquence. Very proud of him!”

Ellen DeGeneres: “I’m proud of you, @AndersonCooper.”

LeAnn Rimes: “Rock on @AndersonCooper for being a brave, classy man. Much respect!”

Kelly Ripa: “So proud of you @andersoncooper . Always have been, always will be.”

Sara Bareilles: “I applaud @andersoncooper for being authentic and honest with the public. It helps others feel brave too.”

Joan Rivers: “Thrilled @AndersonCooper came out! So, THAT’S why he never wanted to date me! I would’ve loved having Gloria Vanderbilt as my mother-in-law.”

M.I.A. recently made headlines for flipping her middle finger at the Super Bowl.

Now she's pointing the finger at CNN anchor Anderson Cooper of all people.

Why, you ask? The apparent lack of news coverage about an issue close to her heart - the slaughter of Tamil civilians in her native Sri Lanka - led to a heated exchange with Cooper and allegations that he branded her a "terrorist."

MIA vs AC

Disappointed in AC's perceived failure to report the atrocities, M.I.A. lashed out.

"@AndersonCooper called me a terrorist for speaking out, and expressed support for the SLgov," she wrote, adding that "respected journos" don't "get it wrong."

That statement prompted a sharp rejoinder from Cooper:

"What are you talking about?... you are mistaken. I never called you a terrorist. I don't even know who you are other than the lady who sang at superbowl."
