CNN anchor Chris Cuomo loses his mind when a bystander labels him “Fredo.”
Watch as he goes off on the guy and tries to play the race card victim.
If you can’t quite make out what Cuomo is ranting about, here’s a sanitized transcript:
“My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo was from The Godfather. He was the weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion. Are any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It’s a f***ing insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f***ing people. It’s like the n-word for us,” Cuomo says. “You’re going to have a f***ing problem. I’ll f***ing ruin your s**t. I’ll f***ing throw you down the stairs like a f***ing punk,” Cuomo adds.
Most of you know Fredo refers to the middle brother in the Godfather saga first penned by Mario Puzo and later adapted into a movie trilogy by Francis Ford Coppola.
The twitter world was quick to react to Cuomo’s crazed rant:
Take it from an actual Italian, “Fredo” is not racist against Italians. The Godfather has all Italian characters and one loser brother is called Fredo. That doesn’t amount to the “n word”. How is this even an issue? pic.twitter.com/AUhLNm6iiZ

Cuomo was facing such a backlash that he got his pals at You Tube to take down the original video claiming it violated their policies on harassment and bullying. [Note You Tube may have been right . . . Cuomo was harassing and bullying in this video]
However . . .
Within minutes of a Tweet by @DonaldJTrumpJr, YouTube seems to have restored the video.
They only correct themselves when they get called out..

Despite this attempt to bury Cuomo’s embarrassing public meltdown, the actual truth can still get out. Already the meme’s are flying quickly:

Of course the President has the last word:
Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!

Pass this around to your friends and family. Let them see the true face of the so-called mainstream media. How they attempt to bully average citizens who take them on, get insanely upset and then try to hide their outsized reaction.
