EXPLOSIVE VIDEO: Watch CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo LOSE HIS MIND and Threatens Heckler After Calling Him Fredo
CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo was caught on camera furiously threatening another individual for calling him a name.
The man called Cuomo “Fredo” which is a reference to the movie “The Godfather” in reference to the weaker, less intelligent son of Don Corleone.
The man tells Cuomo, “I thought that’s who you were.
Cuomo then says, “No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion. It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”
The man then mocks Cuomo’s intensity by saying, “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television.”
Cuomo later tells the man, “You’re going to have a f***ing problem.”
In the video, Cuomo claimed that the term “Fredo” was like using “the ‘n-word’ for us,” then told the man: “I’ll f***ing ruin your shit. I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk.”

Of course, CNN released a statement supporting Cuomo:
Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.
This is absurd.
CNN is saying that they support Cuomo for threatening a man, threatening to push him down the stairs and to ruin his s***.
CNN is supporting the threat of violence for calling Cuomo “Fredo”, which the man says that he thought was his name. I’m sure he’s probably lying and just trying to tick off Cuomo, but still, two wrongs don’t make a right. Isn’t that how the saying goes?
Donald Trump Jr. later called Cuomo out for not getting as worked up about the work in the past when it was on his show:
Does CNN’s head of PR still think “Fredo” is an ethnic slur after watching this? Because if it’s the N word for Italians like
Does CNN’s head of PR still think “Fredo” is an ethnic slur after watching this? Because if it’s the N word for Italians like @ChrisCuomo says, I don’t understand why Chris seems so at ease with someone saying it here. An excuse just as fake as his news. #FredoCuomo https://t.co/8G8yuY80CK pic.twitter.com/1gwVyDVCob
