A ‘merry’ Cohen, 53, said ‘Sayonara Sucker!’ to the former mayor after sharing shots with the network’s co-host Anderson Cooper in honor of Betty White who passed away earlier that day.
Cooper appeared to be both entertained and alarmed at Cohen’s comments as he attempted to diffuse the situation.
The following day, Cohen admitted his forthrightness may have had something to do with the shots he was seen downing earlier on New Year’s Eve.
‘I was a bit overserved last night,’ he wrote in a Saturday Instagram post. ‘I had so much fun though, and I hope you did too!’
In his Instagram video, he also advertised the two liquors he used in the shots with Cooper which included Denada Tequila and Mujen Spirits.

Cohen openly mocked de Blasio on the network’s holiday special as he called him the ‘crappiest’ mayor in New York.
‘The only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been,’ Cohen said.
‘Don’t go on a rant!’ Cooper said in response to calm him down. ‘Is this how you want to start the new year?’
‘So sayonara sucker! 2022! It’s a new year, because guess what? I have a feeling I’m going to be standing right here next year, and you know who I’m not going to be looking at, dancing as the city comes apart? You!’
The comments came after Cohen and Cooper took shots to honor the death of Betty White who passed away earlier that day.

Social media users reveled in Cohen’s drunken comments about the former NYC mayor
Social media users have since taken to online sites such as Twitter to revel in Cohen’s drunken comments over the Democratic mayor.
‘Omg Andy Cohen just roasted Bill deBlasio and it was the greatest moment in live television history,’ @NateGearySports tweeted.
‘ANDY COHEN GOING OFF ON BILL DEBLASIO AT 12:05AM JANUARY 1 2022 IS CHAOS!!!!!,’ @kikiballchangetweeted.
‘Drunk Andy Cohen popping *OFF* and ranting about Bill de Blasio while drunk Anderson Cooper tries to calm him down and play it straight is just the teamwork and heroism we need in these troubled times,’ CNN legal analyst Elliot Williams tweeted.
Other social media users noted that it was unfair that Cohen was not reprimanded for the remarks after CNN fired Kathy Griffin for posting a picture with a beheaded Trump
But not everyone was amused.
Some were quick to point out that Cohen had not received any kind of disciplinary action for his rant, yet former NYE host Kathy Griffin was fired from CNN for posting a photo with a beheaded Donald Trump in 2017.
‘Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen two of the first folks to throw Kathy Griffin under the bus for making fun of Trump. I have no use for either of them since then,’ @JayHart909 tweeted.
‘Misogyny is firing Kathy Griffin over a picture but letting this dope be embarrassing and unfunny on live TV,’ @DKTNNS tweeted.

The former Mayor de Blasio was criticized for his policies during his term in office
Cohen’s New Year’s Eve rant comes after he previously mocked de Blasio last year when he danced with his wife Chirlane McCray in Times Square which had drawn criticism from the public after he told everyone to stay at home and follow COVID guidelines.
‘Do something with this city!,’ Cohen shouted. ‘Honestly, get it together!’
During de Blasio’s term, he mainly drew criticism for his policies such as his approach to the city’s rising crime rate.
The former mayor was succeeded by Democratic mayoral candidate Eric Adams who took office after the ball dropped last night.
