Andy Cohen Accidentally Drops F-Bomb On Live TV As He Urges Fans To Stop Using Him For Celebrity Death Challenge: I Have No Desire To Experience People’s Reactions To Me Dying
Andy Cohen despises the celebrity death challenge TikTokers have been getting a kick out of.
On a recent episode of Bravo’s “What What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” host Andy Cohen addressed TikTokers’ abuse of the viral trend that calls for users to prank someone by claiming their favorite celebrity has died. Andy Cohen said:
“Right into tonight’s jack hole, it goes to the viral TikTok trend where people pull a hilarious prank by telling their parents their favorite celebrity has suddenly died.”
“Now for the last two weeks people have been sending me videos of their loved ones being told I’m dead.”
The 54-year-old admitted:
“I have no desire to experience people’s reactions to me dying. I am scared enough of dying in reality without having to watch bizarre simulations of it over and over again.”
“So let me be clear, don’t make, distribute, or tag me in any f*ck*ng –”
After taking a second to recover from shockingly using profanity while on air, he proceeded:
“Andy Cohen death reaction videos freaks. Why is this even a thing? It’s not even funny.”
He then made it clear that moment was the first time he’s cursed on his talk series:
“On a side note, that was the first time I have ever done that on this show.”
He continued and expressed that although he’s disturbed by the trend, he’s thankful to his fans for expressing their sympathy over his fake passing. He said:
“I’d like to thank all the TikTok moms for your tears. I was very touched, then horribly depressed. Stop now, you TikTokers.”

The seemingly controversial celebrity death prank appears to not be aging well as more users are realizing how it may affect the person they’re jokingly wishing death on. As previously reported, Slater Vance, son of famed actors Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, cried after feeling regret for partaking in the trend. The teenager made headlines after telling his parents Bassett’s “Black Panther” co-star Michael B. Jordan died at 35.
After receiving backlash from fans for participating in the unusual trend, Slater posted an apology to his TikTok. He emotionally stated:
“I would sincerely like to apologize…for taking part in such a harmful trend. I apologize to Michael B. Jordan’s entire family, his extended family, and him directly as he is an idol of mine and taking part in a trend like this is completely disrespectful.”
