CNN anchor Chris Cuomo went nuclear on a man who known as him a derogatory title, threatening to beat his ass.
Chris was in NY Sunday when a man approached him and known as him “Fredo” … the insulting title of a personality in “The Godfather” … a reputation that connotes weak point.
Chris is from a proud Italian household and it set him off, difficult the person, threatening … “I’ll f***in’ ruin your sh*t. I’ll f***in’ throw you down these stairs.”
Cuomo informed the man … the title “Fredo” is as offensive to Italians because the n-word is to African Americans.
He’s a well-liked anchor who’s made a reputation for himself as a fair-minded man, however every thing dissolved into abject rage as he scoffed on the man who claimed — clearly falsely — that he thought Chris’ title was Fredo.
It escalated even additional — Chis was clearly searching for a struggle … difficult the man to take a swing at him.
He didn’t anchor his present Monday evening … it’s unclear if he was scheduled to look or whether or not he was off.
