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.

    Wow. What happened to the tolerant left? Would he have been just as upset if he called him Sonny. These were fictional characters. CC is totally unhinged here. The guy that called him Fredo looks like he could take him, he reminded me a little like Luca. Nice language as well.

    I asked friends that belong to a large Italian family if they were offended by the name Fredo? They only know Fredo from The Godfather…that’s it-they never heard that name as a slur. Cuomo lies even when he isn’t behind a camera!! SOMEHOW THEY WILL BLAME TRUMP FOR THIS!! It’s a given.

      The Nazis ( demorats ) are the ones that are racist, and it goes all the way back to before the civil war.

      I’m an English teacher. I’d be happy to tutor you and trump in grammar and punctuation. This is a shameful and illiterate reply. You did maga no justice. That’s why Chris Cuomo stood up without a bone spur to beat the shit out of “chicken man😂😂”. You go Chris!!!! Whip this man’s ass and make him take notes to give to donny duck-in-stuff(he’s no chief).
