REPORT: Cuomo breaks his silence on viral ‘Fredo’ video
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo released a statement Tuesday on Twitter in response to the viral video of a heated confrontation between him and an agitator that surfaced the day before.
“Appreciate all the support but – truth is I should be better than the guys baiting me,” Cuomo tweeted Tuesday. “This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Cuomo received support from many in media after he used threatening language in response to a man calling him “Fredo,” which he argued was an offense on par with the N-word. Fox News anchor Sean Hannity argued that the agitator was “being a jackass in front of his family” and that he “has zero to apologize for.”
Appreciate all the support but – truth is I should be better than the guys baiting me. This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose.

One Twitter user asked, “How come you didn’t call out Ana Navarro when she called @DonaldJTrumpJr “Fredo” if it’s such an offensive word?”

Selective outrage is it?

Another Twitter user suggested Cuomo should follow the example of
Covington student Nick Sandmann, who stood and smiled when he was taunted by a Native American man in D.C.
Perhaps you could learn from this young man what restraint and maturity looks like in the face of baiting. He was better. pic.twitter.com/egDSmrQulV
