CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, younger brother of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-New York), went on a rant after a heckler called him “Fredo.” The term Fredo refers to the movie The Godfather, in which Fredo is youngest brother. Cuomo is the youngest of five.


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.


President Donald Trump also attacked Cuomo in a tweet, saying, “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts.” He also linked the comment to CNN’s ratings.
