Chris Cuomo Threatens Man Who Hurled Italian Slur 'Fredo' at Him

Sean Hannity

"It's like the n-word for us", he claims.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo appears in a video posted to social media on Monday in which he fights back after a man calls him "Fredo". The host of the channel, Brandon Recor, told The Washington Post that the video was captured at a bar in Shelter Island, N.Y. on August 11 and sent to him by the man in the confrontation.

CNN is defending anchorman Chris Cuomo over a video of a confrontation in which Mr. Cuomo goes into a profane tirade and threatens to attack a person who got his name wrong. "I'm an anchor on CNN", Cuomo said. Fredo is a term from The Godfather, referring to the dumb brother. He was the weak brother.

In recent years, columnists and pundits have repeatedly compared Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner to Fredo, making the case that they are the weakest links in the Trump family.

"Any of you Italian?" It's a f****** insult to your people. "It's an insult to your f**king people!"

"Punk a** b**ches from the right call me Fredo", Cuomo says to the man.

"Are you Italian?" Cuomo asks one of the men.

"You know my name is not fucking Fredo", he continued, adding, "own what you said". I'm f--in' right here.

"He deserves the apology".

"What are you going to do about it?" the man says.

"I'll f--ing ruin your s--", the "Cuomo Prime Time" anchor replied.

Back on the video, when things grew more heated, Cuomo said he would resort to violence, threatening to "fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk".

A video of Chris Cuomo in heated argument at a NY bar has been making its rounds on the internet.

The ephemeral meaning of words - and this case, fictional characters names - has never been on clearer display here, as Don Jr.is far from the only opinion that matters. The channel reported that the man was a "news fan" and simply wanted to take a photo with the prominent TV personality when Cuomo burst into his tirade.

Cuomo became irate at the man for referring to him to as Fredo Corleone from The Godfather, describing it as a racist slut against Italians. Cuomo has Italian heritage, both his mother and father being of Italian origin. "We completely support him".
