  • Asia Argento Speaks Out About Anthony Bourdain's Suicide Report

Chefs Eric Ripert (L) and Anthony Bourdain attend a screening of "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown: Japan with Masa" in New York City.

Jason Wang is the CEO and son of Xi'an Famous Foods founder located in Flushing, New York. For an episode of Bourdain's Travel Channel show, "No Reservations", Garcia gave Bourdain a tour of his hometown, Puebla.

"Yes, I have been very blessed to have crossed paths with you in this lovely life". Anthony posted shared a photo on Instagram of the crew, including Asia, who was sitting right beside him. He promoted his Mexican-born sous chef, the late Carlos Llaguno Garcia, to run two of his NY restaurants and complained loudly about the United States' "ridiculously hypocritical attitudes" toward immigration. Jason Wang, CEO of Xi'an Famous Foods in NY, planned to donate profits at all its locations on Friday to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The "360°" host teared up as he discussed his friend, saying that referring to Bourdain in the past tense is "really hard to imagine".

If you are anxious about your or someone else's mental health, the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider.

ANTHONY Bourdain might've been best known for his ability to cook and review food like no one else but it was the way he never shied away from addressing his dark past that made him a breath of fresh air for most of his fans. "And makes me very sad for him to have - to have a succumbed to that", Cooper said in the tribute. "And he simply replied, 'I'm just calling out good food like it is, that's all'".

If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide please reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. "They probably didn't know everything", Speisser's friend Christelle Schenck, who had been there to help with the filming, said. "Rest in peace, Tony, and the most honest condolences to Tony's beloved family", Wang ended the Facebook post.
