CNN’s Chris Cuomo Threatens Violence After Man Calls Him ‘Fredo’: ‘I’ll F*cking Throw You Down These Stairs’

Aug 13, 2019 | ,

By Breitbart

A video has surfaced of CNN’s Chris Cuomo using profanity and threatening violence after an individual referred to him as “Fredo.”

The video, which surfaced Monday evening, shows the CNN anchor flipping out on an individual who referred to him as “Fredo” – a nickname popularized by Breitbart News’s John Nolte.

“No. Punk ass bitches on the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” Cuomo said. “Fredo is from The Godfather. He was the weak brother.”

He continued, telling the man that “Fredo” is equivalent to the “N-word” to Italians.

The man reacted to Cuomo’s explosion, remarking, “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television.”

“If you want to play, then we’ll fucking play,” Cuomo shot back, hurling a series of insults at the man and referring to him as a “punk bitch.”

“You know my name is not fucking Fredo,” he continued, adding, “own what you said.”

“I’ll fucking ruin your shit,” Cuomo ranted. “I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.”

“Please do,” the man shot back.

“So you can fucking sue?” Cuomo continued, before daring the man to punch him:

[Editor’s Note: YouTube has removed the video from “That’s The Point” with Brandon.]

Reactions were swift.

“I assume @cnn not available for comment,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. “Imagine their coverage of this if they were a real news organization?”:

So @ChrisCuomo says that “Fredo”— a character on The Godfather— is the same as the n-word? Equating the two is the very definition of white privilege and diminishes the generations of hate African Americans have had to endure. https://twitter.com/realsaavedra/status/1161081413120090113

I wonder if this kind of behavior would trigger a flag under a red flag law. He seems like an unstable and violent man. https://twitter.com/realsaavedra/status/1161081413120090113

Did @ChrisCuomo  just say that “Fredo” is to Italians what the N word is to black people? Th N word is a dehumanizing word used against blacks who endured years of oppression. Fredo is a term from The Godfather, referring to the dumb brother. Equivocating the two is pure racism.
