When he shared a viral video that shows an unidentified racist hurling an ethnic slur at CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, President Donald Trump himself promoted the use of the same epithet.
"I don't understand why Fredo set you off". Cuomo was particularly put off by the name and the underlying meaning of being called that.
THAT'S THE POINT with Brandon has posted the video of Chris Cuomo in meltdown mode below. "'Fredo" was from "The Godfather.' He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur". It's an insult to your f-- people. It's an insult to your f*cking people.
But Falco disagreed that the name is equivalent to the n-word. Chris Cuomo and the man are then seen nearly getting into a physical confrontation. In response, Cuomo threatens to throw the guy down the stairs, ruin his sh*t, and hurls about a dozen f-bombs.
CNN'sChris Cuomo made his first public statement after a video went viral showing the TV host getting into a verbal altercation with an unknown person who repeatedly referred to him as "Fredo". By saying the "completely support" Cuomo's reaction is appalling.
Cuomo's older brother, Andrew, the governor of NY, has routinely been a thorn in Trump's side.
Cuomo, 49, said he should have been "better" than the man who called him "Fredo" but declined to apologize.
Others who defended Cuomo include Fox News host Sean Hannity, who said the CNN rival is the one who "deserves the apology". "Shows you what Cuomo thinks of black people FREDO was associated with being 'slow, and couldn't be trusted'". This happens all the time these days. "He's out with his nine-year-old daughter, and his wife, and this guy is being a jackass in front of his family".
The footage which is said to have been taken at an event in NY on Sunday, has been making rounds on social media, sparking a Twitter moment of its own.
Chris Cuomo also weighed in on Twitter about the incident, thanking his supporters while writing about the "lesson" he learned.
How did CNN react to Cuomo's rant?
"I thought Chris was Fredo also", Trump tweeted.
Oh, and about Cuomo's assertion that "Fredo" is an Italian slur?
"As much as Italians have suffered and suffered greatly, African Americans and Jews have had to deal with things we have not had to deal with", Mr Tamburri said, citing the "tragedy of slavery" and "the tragedy of genocide". But, that doesn't mean Cuomo's reaction is the kind of behavior that an global news organization like CNN should be condoning. Cuomo asked Scotto if he was surprised by Grimm's lack of discretion, threatening him in front of a camera.
