This all comes after Cuomo screamed at a man and threatened to throw him down the stairs for calling him “Fredo.” The video went viral shortly after the confrontation. The CNN anchor later apologized, saying he didn’t need to “add to the ugliness” of American politics.
“No, punk-ass b*tches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo said. “I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo was on ‘The Godfather.’ He was the weak brother, and they use it as an Italian aspersion. Any of you Italian? It’s a f*cking insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f*cking people. It’s like the n-word for us. So, is that a cool f*cking thing?”
