Actor Val Kilmer drew controversy on Friday after calling chef Anthony Bourdain’s reported suicide “selfish.”
“Oh the dark thick pain of loss. The selfishness. How many moments away were you from feeling the love that was universal. From every corner of the world you were loved. So selfish. You’ve given us cause to be so angry,” Kilmer, 58, wrote on Facebook Friday.
He added that suicide is the “most selfish act a human can execute,” according to the post.
According to Bourdain’s employer CNN, in a statement, he was found dead of a suicide at age 61 in France.
Kilmer added that he didn’t know him personally, but he said that his fans were “selfishly angry” that he left them behind.
