Chris Cuomo 'Fredo' tirade defended by CNN

Fredo is a pejorative not a racial slur

Cuomo threatened to throw the man down the stairs, arguing it was akin to using the n-word.

In the video, which had received more than 540,000 views in its first 90 minutes since being posted Monday evening, an unidentified man calls Mr. Cuomo "Fredo", which prompts the CNN journalist to to say that only "f--ass bitches from the right call me Fredo".

Cuomo then tells the man that he's "gonna have a f****** problem" if he continues to confront him.

If he calls Chris Cuomo that again, he could be sleeping with the fishes. "I'm an anchor on CNN", a heated Cuomo responded. He was a weak brother. Or does the use of that slur have very different meaning and intention when it's used against someone with such proud Italian-American heritage? Are any of you Italian? It's a f****** insult to your people. It's an insult to your f*cking people.

"No, punk-a- b-tches from the right call me Fredo", Cuomo tells the man in the video.

"You know my name is not fucking Fredo", he continued, adding, "own what you said". Don't f--ing insult me like that.

Hannity applauded Cuomo, saying the CNN host was the one who "deserves the apology".

"What are you going to do about it?" the man says.

"I'll fucking ruin your shit", Cuomo ranted. "I'll f-- throw you down these stairs like a f-- punk".

Cuomo is the son of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo and the younger brother of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

"My name is Chris Cuomo".

CNN stood by their host, with spokesperson Matt Dornic apparently confirming that it was Cuomo in the viral video while saying that he "defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup".

In the video that was originally surfaced on the Youtube channel "That's The Point with Brandon", begins amid the confrontation, which allegedly took place on Sunday, with the man telling Cuomo, "I thought that was who you were". The channel reported that the man was a "news fan" and simply wanted to take a photo with the prominent TV personality when Cuomo burst into his tirade.

"Hey @ChrisCuomo, take it from me, "Fredo" isn't the N word for Italians, it just means you're the dumb brother", Trump.
