“I was wrong,” Cuomo tweeted in response to the backlash stemming out of his comments on CNN and Sirius XM radio. “Calling a journalist fake -nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur. I should not have said it. I apologize.”

Cuomo also thanked people “for calling me out for equating fake with other slurs.” (RELATED: Cuomo — Saying ‘Fake News’ Is The Same As Using The N-Word)
