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.”

WARNING: The tweets and video below contain offensive language.

  1. rofl Fredo is now an “ethnic slur”? Funny, I thought it was one of Rush’s sardonic comments. Apparently, Chris wants nothing to do with anything of Italian ancestry.

  2. I think he should be called filthy mouth Fredo. I can’t believe anybody at his station would defend him for using that language and making threats of physical harm against somebody but of course it’s CNN and they apparently don’t have anyone intelligent working there.

  3. Fredo Como will forever be known as “FREDO”….what a nut job. He needs to understand that most of us know if it wasn’t for his wack job daddy he wouldn’t have a job at FAKE news CNN

  4. He is nothing but a little bitch, that tries to act like he is tough.If you look close you can see his body guard,that is the only reason he is trying to play the tough guy
