Anderson Cooper defended Andy Cohen‘s honor on Wednesday night’s “Watch What Happens Live” by snapping back at his meanest tweeters.

But before reading some of the CNN anchor’s best comebacks, here’s a little tip to defend yourself against social media bullies — or “cowards,” as Cooper called them.

“You have to read the person’s Twitter history, because then you really get a sense and you can personalize your response,” Cooper told the Bravo host before ripping into his online critics.

And rip he did. Here are a few gems from the segment:

@LilPoundCake1: “Because Andy is a shady bitch. He’ll do anything to giggle like a school girl…that is, until the s–t hits the fan.”

“After reading the person’s Twitter history, I had two responses: One is, ‘@LilPoundCake1, I’m guessing from your bitterness you eat more than just a little pound cake.’ The only other thing I thought is that not even Bow Wow uses the moniker Lil anymore. Time to update.”

@Hurricanesjc: “@Andy Are you really that famous that people want to waste their hard earned money on buying your book? Not me.”

“This one I wouldn’t even respond to because I really don’t respond to people who don’t have a photo of themselves or actually use their real name, because I just think they’re cowards,” Cooper explained. He then added, “Frankly, their tweets were so moronic and boring and offensive and racist. The only thing I could think of was this person has more than 13,000 tweets and 54 followers. It’s not a great ratio.”
