Chefs, celebrities and fans worldwide celebrated the late Anthony Bourdain on social media Tuesday, marking #BourdainDay, June 25.

Chefs José Andrés and Eric Ripert announced the celebration of Bourdain's life last month, urging fans to upload a video or picture of themselves toasting to "Tony" on social media including the hashtag #BourdainDay.

".@ericripert and I celebrating #BourdainDay in Singapore at @KEK chili crab paradise restaurant with beers, chili crab and friends!" Andres tweeted on Tuesday, Bourdain's birthday.

"We hope that everybody is going to be celebrating in every place around the world, and they're going to be putting the video up,” Andrés says in the video, raising his beer mug in celebration.


“Yes, with the hashtag #BourdainDay,” Ripert says, before the group toasts their drinks around plates of food.

Bourdain, best known for his show "Parts Unknown," died on June 8, 2018, of an apparent suicide.

CNN's Christiane Amanpour tweeted Tuesday that she wanted to remember "the grand adventures he took us on."

The City Council of District of Columbia posted a quote from when Bourdain visited Washington in 2009. 

Countless other fans posted pictures of Bourdain and quotes or messages:

“Walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. It's a plus for everybody." Happy birthday to the man who showcased humanity from across the globe and inspired many to travel and to eat outside of their comfort zones. #BourdainDay
