Chris Cuomo 'Fredo' N-Word Video Reactions On Twitter Are Priceless

VIDEO Chris Cuomo Confronts Guy Who Called Him Fredo

Fox News's Sean Hannity has put network rivalry to one to side and come to the defense of Chris Cuomo after a profanity-laced video of the CNN anchor threatening a man at a bar in NY went viral.

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".

The video, which was widely shared on social media on Monday, showed Cuomo getting agitated at a man for referring to him as "Fredo", which he claimed was an insult used against him by people on the right.

He continued, telling the man that "Fredo" is equivalent to the "N-word" to Italians. "I'll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk".

The claim in that tweet that Rush Limbaugh calls Cuomo Fredo are backed up by these transcripts.

If he calls Chris Cuomo that again, he could be sleeping with the fishes.

In a heated exchange, Cuomo, 49, forcefully responds to the man who seems to be comparing him to Fredo Corleone from the film "The Godfather".

The man told Cuomo he "doesn't want to do that", and Cuomo responded: "Take a swing at me". "If you've got something to say about what I do on television then say it". But Cuomo encourages the man to "own" what he said.

Cuomo hosts "Cuomo Prime Time" on CNN. "He was the weak brother".

The ephemeral meaning of words - and this case, fictional characters names - has never been on clearer display here, as Don Jr.is far from the only opinion that matters. "I'll f-ing wreck your shit". 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. Mario Cuomo and his brother is current New York Gov.

Mr. Dornic was replying to Donald Trump Jr., who had retweeted the video and said he assumed the network wouldn't comment because it's not a real news organization.

He added: "Hey @ChrisCuomo, take it from me, "Fredo" isn't the N word for Italians, it just means you're the dumb brother". Fredo is a term from The Godfather, referring to the dumb brother.
