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.

"They said something they thought would trigger him"

No, baby doll, they said something that absolutely triggered him.
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.

Always twisting things. The leftists can get away with anything, and there’s ALWAYS an excuse!!! If someone on the right did that there would be a gun grab!
So suddenly it's not okay to confront anchors outside a TV studio. I don't remember cries of outrage from CNN when angry mob besieged Tucker Carlson's house.

It's so funny to hear the president criticized Cuomo for doing the same thing
From now on he is known as -

To think how many times Trump has been insulted, just remember a comedian holding
a beheaded head in blood representing Trump, or the play some actors played in NY
stabbing Trump, etc etc. I N C L U D I N G the insults and false accusations on TV
by, YES, Fredo Cuomo... but when somebody says something to him... it is racism ! ! !
Grow up F R E D O .....
Reginald House
Reginald House:
Whether Fredo is actually an ethnic slur or not is irrelevant. The guy who called him that did not come from a frame of positivity. Why did he call him Fredo? He wasn't complimenting Chris when he said that! He called him Fredo to disrespect him. He came at him with malice intent. The reaction he got was warranted!
