Anderson Cooper swatted, Anderson Cooper has become the latest victim of the “celebrity swatting” pranking craze — after a flurry of cops descended on his Hamptons home over a bogus report of a shooting.
It was the first time the hoax — in which pranksters create false reports of violence to trigger SWAT-like responses at celebs’ homes — had been pulled off outside Los Angeles.
A 911 caller last month told Southampton Town cops a man had just shot his wife at the CNN anchor’s home in Quiogue. Cops from four departments flooded the streets but found no signs of a shooting, sources said.
Cooper, 45, was not at his home at the time.
More than a dozen celebs have been “swatted” in LA over the past few months — including Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, Russell Brand and Ryan Seacrest.
Police have no suspects in the Cooper case.
