Andy Cohen confronts internet troll for criticizing his parenting

Andy Cohen confronted an internet troll who criticized how the Bravo producer parents his son, 2-year-old Benjamin.

Cohen shared screenshots of the DMs that began with the troll commenting, “You should try and be a better person for your son.”

The “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” host, 53, responded, “What am I doing wrong?”

“Oh wow didn’t expect a response. I was just being a troll. You’re doing fine. Sry,” the person said.

Cohen then affirmed he is “indeed a real person” and told the Instagram user to stop trolling people.

“Shahs of Sunset” star — and mom — Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi commented, “Yessss Andy!!!”

“Southern Charm” star Shep Rose commented, “That is patently insane. And not even a little surprising. We are so screwed 🤦‍♂️.”

“Is this real? Because omg,” Savannah Guthrie chimed in.

John Stamos offered a simple, “#word.”

Former “RHOD” star Stephanie Hollman commented “I love you. You are an amazing person and father. Never listen to the trolls ❤️” and her co-star Tiffany Moon added, “I too have fallen victim to engaging with trolls. Just remember that they only try to tackle you when you’ve got the ball 🏈 Sending hugs from Dallas!! 😘”

A longtime friend of Cohen’s, actor John Benjamin Hickey, previously told Page Six that Cohen is “such an unbelievably great dad” to Benjamin.

“To watch him walk his kid to school every day, to see what that kid does to Andy and what Andy does to that kid, it’s really a joy to behold,” he gushed.

Cohen welcomed Benjamin via surrogate in February 2019.

He recently told Heather Dubrow on an episode of her podcast that he is open to having another child but the surrogacy process would need to happen “ASAP.”
