CNN on Monday defended late-night anchor Chris Cuomo after video surfaced showing him getting in a heated, profanity-laced confrontation with an individual who referred to him as “Fredo,” a fictional character from “The Godfather.”
Cuomo, an Italian, then argues that the term “Fredo” is a racist slur similar to calling an African American the N-word.
The article goes on to state the following:
The video, which was first shared on YouTube and other social media platforms Monday, shows Cuomo repeatedly cursing at a man who encountered him and called him “Fredo.” It is unclear when and where the exchange took place.
“Punk a– b—es from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo says to a man standing beside him. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.”

Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.
