Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Freebeacon.com: “CNN: Fredo Is An Ethnic Slur”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

CNN came to the defense of anchor Chris Cuomo on Monday night after he erupted at a stranger who called him "Fredo," declaring it to be an ethnic slur on par with the "N-word" against Italian-Americans.

Fredo is a fictional character from The Godfather series who is portrayed as the weakest and least intelligent of the Corleone crime family's brothers.

The controversy began when a man approached Cuomo in public and called him "Fredo." Cuomo reacted by cursing at the man and stated that calling an Italian "Fredo" is tantamount to calling a black person a "n—er."

"No, punk-ass b—es from the right call me ‘Fredo.' My name is Chris Cuomo. I'm an anchor on CNN," Cuomo said. "‘Fredo' was from ‘The Godfather.' He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur—are any of you Italian? … It's a f—ing insult to your people. It's an insult to your f—kin' people. It's like the N-word for us. Is that a cool f—ing thing?"

Cuomo threatened to throw the man down the stairs before others interceded and broke up the argument.
