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."

All this will be sorted out after Cuomo returns from his fishing trip....
Red Flag Fredo needs help.
Good grief, Fredo; grow up.
They should call him Fanook.
Also, he gave his rant in front of his 9 year-old daughter. Is he always such an unhinged father?
LOL! He opened Pandoras box by flipping out like that, he is never ever going to hear the end of it. I’m looking at his Twitter account, everybody is calling him Fredo now LOL LOL!
Okay, Fredo is Godfather, Frodo is Hobbit. Got it now. LOL... no wonder I was confused when I heard that someone had flipped out over being called Fredo.
The way he and his dad soiled the family name, I’d think referencing them by the “C” word “Cuomo” would be the Italian equivelant of the “N” word.
Fredo and Pedo.....
Talk about a motley crew.
President Trump tweeted:
Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldnt be allowed to have any weapon. Hes nuts!
That’s why I am calling him Red Flag Fredo.
Fredo suddenly has serious support here, something about how dare the stranger confront Fredo in front of his 9-year-old daughter, though apparently Fredo’s language in front of his 9-year-old daughter is acceptable and just, and he should have beaten the stranger for daring to talk to him.
Mr. Tick Tock himself agrees.
Fredo is the new N word well okie dokie, Cuomo is white..Cuomo is a freak of nature
