The host of CNN's Parts Unknown is dating Italian filmmaker, Asia Argento, who was one of the first women that came forward to make the claim that Weinstein raped her during a tell-all interview published by the New Yorker.
“I am proud and honored to know you. You just did the hardest thing in the world,” Bourdain wrote in a note to Argento.
Bourdain also took to Twitter to blast Weinstein and those who stood by him all this time, knowing that he was guilty of such behavior.
The renowned chef started by calling all of the Hollywood elites that remained silent on Weinstein's sexual harassment allegations "nauseating, chicken-hearted enablers."

Bourdain also attacked Matt Damon, who supposedly vouched for a man named Fabrizio Lombardo, who has been accused of being the one responsible for taking care of Weinstein's needs with women.
