  • CNN anchor Chris Cuomo attends the 12th annual CNN Heroes An All Star Tribute at the American Museum of Natural History on Sunday Dec. 9 2018 in New York

"He's out with his 9-year-old daughter and his wife, and this guy is being a jack- in front of his family".

"There is a lesson: No need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose", Cuomo wrote. Cuomo was particularly put off by the name and the underlying meaning of being called that. I'm an anchor on CNN.

'Fredo' or Frederico Corleone is a fictional character in The Godfather, who is portrayed as the weakest of three brothers of the criminal clan. "Shows you what Cuomo thinks of black people FREDO was associated with being 'slow, and couldn't be trusted'".

At one point Cuomo asks: "Are you Italian?" "It's an insult to your people ..."

"I thought that's who you were", the man says to Cuomo. "Is that a cool f--ing thing?"

The man replies, saying he thought Cuomo's name was Fredo, leading to Cuomo threatening him. The man appears to try to rile Cuomo up, who responds by saying "I'll fuckin' ruin your shit" and "I'll fucking throw you down these stairs". It's an insult to your f-king people.It's an insult to your people.

The man says he thought Cuomo was "Fredo", leading the anchor to tell him: "Punk [expletives] from the right call me 'Fredo.' My name is Chris Cuomo".

"Yeah, but if you wanna play then we'll play".

CNN jumped quickly to defend Cuomo.

In fact, as pointed out Donald Trump, Jr. himself, the elder Trump son was one time was called "Fredo" by a CNN guest.on Cuomo's show.with no correction from Cuomo. "The truth hurts. Totally lost it!" the president tweeted Tuesday morning. The term "Fredo" is generally regarded as a slur against Italian Americans by implying both that they are are weak and unintelligent and also connected to organized crime.

The conflation of the term Fredo with the N-word was immediately criticized by many on social media, but Cuomo also received his share of support from some unlikely sources, including Anthony Scaramucci, who tweeted he was "proud of" Cuomo, and also Fox News right-wing host Sean Hannity.

Cuomo, whose rant drew fire from of President Donald Trump, apologized Tuesday for losing it - despite once likening himself to Fredo in a radio interview. "He deserves the apology", Hannity tweeted. [In my opinion], Chris Cuomo has zero to apologise for.

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. This is outrageous kind of stuff that's done to them and I frankly don't care whether it's Chris Cuomo or whether it's Eric Trump or Ted and Heidi Cruz.

See a few reactions to Cuomo's incident below.

"Will you resign like you would force others to do?"

"No, punk-a** b***hes from the right call me "Fredo".
