On Thursday night, Anthony Bourdain stood in as host for "Piers Morgan Live." Beyond discussing cronuts and "cool" chefs, Bourdain also brought up the now-famous Justin Bieber urination incident.

Bourdain asked guest Mario Batali what he would have done, should it have happened at one of Batali's establishments. Without hesitating, Batali responds, "I would have brutally kicked his ass."

After a round of applause from the audience, Batali continues. "That's not just being funny and flip, that's actually peeing on somebody's workplace. That's odd. That's weird. I think he just needs a wake up call. I don't think he's an evil kid."
