CNN's Chris Cuomo Threatens Violence After Man Calls Him 'Fredo': A video has surfaced of CNN’s Chris Cuomo using profanity and threatening violence after an individual referred to him as “Fredo.”
The video, which surfaced Monday evening, shows the CNN anchor flipping out on an individual who referred to him as “Fredo” – a nickname coined by Breitbart News’s John Nolte.
“No. Punk ass bitches on the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an actor on CNN,” Cuomo said. “Fredo is from The Godfather. He was the weak brother.”
He continued, telling the man that “Fredo” is equivalent to the “N-word” to Italians.
The man reacted to Cuomo’s explosion, remarking, “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television.”
