CNN News Anchor Confronts Heckler

A video posted to social media on Monday night shows CNN anchor Chris Cuomo getting into an argument with a heckler who called “Fredo.” “Punk-ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo yelled. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather.”

Cuomo, who is of Italian heritage, said the name was just “like the N-word” for Italians. In response to the video, a CNN spokesperson said, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

WARNING STRONG LANGUAGE
