CNN Anchor Lashes Out at Man Who Called Him ‘Fredo’

CNN's Chris Cuomo was caught on camera lashing out at a man who he said insulted him using an ethnic slur. “You called me f***ing 'Fredo.' It's like I call you punk b****, you like that?” Cuomo said. "Fredo" refers to Fredo Corleone, the brother who betrayed his mafia family in “The Godfather” series. In the films, Fredo was seen as weak and dimwitted. Because of that, he was passed over for Godfather because he wasn’t as smart as his younger brother.

If you don't want people calling you some nickname you don't like, reacting like that guarantees they're going to continue calling you this for the rest of time.
