Anthony Bourdain, who died Friday, was known not only for a being a celebrity chef and host of CNN's "Parts Unknown," but also as one of the strongest advocates for the #MeToo movement after his girlfriend, actress-director Asia Argento, came forward last fall to accuse mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.

Bourdain's death by suicide on Friday at age 61 has prompted an outpouring of remembrances, including from other #MeToo advocates and Weinstein accusers like Rose McGowan.

"It would've been a lethal compromise," Bourdain said. "It would've been a slow-acting poison that would eventually nibble away at our souls until we ended up like Quentin Tarantino, looking back on a life of complicity and shame and compromise."

"What is wrong with me? What have I, how have I presented myself in such a way as to not give confidence, or why was I not the sort of person people would see as a natural ally here?"
