Andy Cohen (opens in new tab) just blessed everyone's Instagram timelines with shirtless pictures of Anderson Cooper (opens in new tab), and apparently, Anderson is not happy about it.

On Tuesday, Andy (opens in new tab) shared two throwback photos of Anderson while the two vacationed together in a tropical place. In the first picture, Anderson is posing in front of a lush greenery, while in the second, he's flexing his toned body on a boat.

Andy opened up in the caption about why he decided to share this kind of content: "If it were a normal year, I'd be on vacation with my pal...threatening to post shirtless pics of him. Well, it's 2020 and I'm sitting on my deck so I figured I'd just post without asking and piss him off! #SilverFox"

Fans went wild over the post, offering all kinds of questions and comments to Anderson about the pictures. "This is community service, we thank you for being a good friend and sharing this in our time of need. 🔥😙," one fan wrote, while another person commented, "Silver fox, indeed."

Andy offered an update about Anderson's reaction to the post in his Instagram Story. "Anderson is so pissed at me guys," Cohen said. "But listen, I'm just sitting here bored under a blanket. Ben is sleeping, and I'm bored. So what else am I supposed to do?"

"Maybe I'll post more shirtless pictures of Anderson!" he added.

Obviously, the post is all in good fun, and Anderson and Andy have a pretty close relationship. They actually met in the '90s when they were set up on a blind date...but the date never happened.

"Andy and I were first set up on a blind date, which never happened because we had a phone call and after two minutes I said, 'I'm not dating this guy,'" Anderson recalled (opens in new tab) on Watch What Happens Live in December 2016. "He broke my cardinal rule…he mentioned my mom within the first four sentences of meeting me."

Well, thankfully, the two remained good friends. They both welcomed their sons Benjamin (opens in new tab) and Wyatt (opens in new tab) within months of one another, and in an Instagram Story (opens in new tab), Andy promised (opens in new tab) their sons would be best friends — just like their fathers.

On Watch What Happens Live (opens in new tab), Ben and Wyatt met for the first time in June. "That's going to be your good buddy," Andy told Ben while showing him Wyatt. "And we're going to travel together. And if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you're going to be great friends."
