Few people inspired me in a way that #AnthonyBourdain did. His passion for the stories of the underrepresented is a quality so few have. He didn’t just want to walk in someone’s shoes, he wanted to learn how they got those shoes and why they wear those shoes. pic.twitter.com/EyRbi8UsaV— Dan LaMorte (@DanLaMorte) June 8, 2020
Standup comic Dan LaMorte shared a photo of the chef alongside a quote of his which spoke about activism and walking in people’s shoes.

"He was funny. He was curious ... and, in person, he was razor-whip sharp, ready to drop cultural references high and low like a string of word bombs," staff writer @cmonstah says of the late chef https://t.co/xNfEoY5rjq
He was also a prolific author with several books to his name including his bestseller, “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.” Anthony was survived by his daughter and his two ex-wives.
