Skip to comments.CNN's Cuomo explodes in profanity-laden rant over his nickname, threatens violence, likens Godfather

Obviously, the stranger who called Chris Cuomo "Fredo" touched a very sensitive nerve in the anchor for the third-rated cable news operation. As the son and brother of two governors of New York, Chris may feel himself an underachiever, perhaps occupying his position of prominence solely on the basis of his family ties. That could explain the vehemence, verbal thuggery, and victimology of the unhinged rant that followed.
Warning: the video embedded below is NOT SAFE FOR WORK:
In case you are not able to listen to the vile language where you are reading this, here are some narrated excerpts, courtesy of the Washington Examiner:
"Punk-a‑‑ b‑‑‑‑‑‑ on the right call me Fredo," Cuomo says, and goes on to explain why he finds that name offensive.
"Fredo was from The Godfather," Cuomo said. "He was a weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion. Are any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It's a f‑‑‑‑‑‑ insult to your people. It's an insult to your f‑‑‑‑‑‑ people." He then claimed that "Fredo" is the N-word to Italians. "Is that a cool f‑‑‑‑‑‑ thing?"
The other man in the video then mockingly tells Cuomo that he is "a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television," to which Cuomo responds, "If you want to play, we'll f‑‑‑‑‑‑ play."

The Not-Mario is a poor, moronic shadow of his father.
Here is Lara Logan’s account of her assault and rape in Egypt.
During the Arab Spring, remember?
I’m not sure why you posted her picture but, reading this will break your heart for her trauma.
It’s not an insult to Italians. It is, however, a well-known insult.
Americans, not only us Italians know this.
We’re all dying laughing here.
I watch both about once a year. Classic.
John Cazale was in 5 movies. All were nominated for Best Picture.
I had gotten her mixed up with someone else. My apologies for my comment.
Thanks, I read the story before, and her photo is post-worthy because the word “African-American” is a racist term, used and abused for political gain.
He is such an idiot! If he had just laughed it off with an FU and walked away, that would have been the end of it. I might have even had a little respect for him for that. But noooo, Fredo had to make a scene.
Lara Logan is a brave modern day hero.
Tanks for the reminder of what she went through and survived.
“John Cazale was in 5 movies. All were nominated for Best Picture.”
Yep, although not all the G’father sequels (ie. III) were nominated.
He died of lung cancer in 1978. Likely a heavy smoker.
Al Pacino thought Cazale was a magnificent actor.
CNN sucks and Fredo needs to get over himself...
“fredo” is not the n-word. Stuff like wop and dago are like the n-word.
The guy is using fredo on cuomo because its a personal insult primarily because he’s weak.
haha! that’s great!!!
Fredo and Pedo are competing to see who can score the most own goals for Team Progtard DildoCrat.
