The news anchor lost it at the heckler. The rant was posted to a right-wing YouTube channel, which some think means the man was baiting him in order to film his reaction.
Cuomo has publicly apologize in a tweet.
Appreciate all the support but – truth is I should be better than the guys baiting me. This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose.
