REPORT: Video shows Chris Cuomo in altercation after man calls him ‘Fredo’
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
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.
