Chris Cuomo, 49, (above) went on a vulgar, caught-on-camera rant during an event on Shelter Island last week, after being called “Fredo” — Corleone’s bumbling son in the movies — going so far as to say the moniker is like the N-word for Italian-Americans.
“Punk-ass bitches from the right call me ‘Fredo,’ My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN,” the anchor says on the video. “Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was a weak brother and the use of it to an Italian is disparaging.”
