    Fredo Round-Up: Chris Matthews, Joy Reid, Cher, and NYT Used the Term

    Chris Cuomo compared the nickname “Fredo” to the “N-word” in a viral video that surfaced Monday night, showing the CNN anchor melting down after a man referred to him as such. There are numerous instances, however, of others in media, politics, and Hollywood using the term– the same term Cuomo likened to an ethnic slur.

    Cuomo raged after a man referred to him as “Fredo,” threatening violence and comparing the nickname – popularized by Breitbart News’ John Nolte – to the “N-word.”

    “No. Punk ass bitches on the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” Cuomo said. “Fredo is from The Godfather. He was the weak brother.”

    “It’s an insult to your ****ing people. It’s like the N-word for us,” Cuomo continued before threatening to throw the man down the stairs.

    “I’ll ****ing ruin your shit,” Cuomo ranted. “I’ll ****ing throw you down these stairs like a ****ing punk.”

    Despite Cuomo’s insistence that “Fredo” is an ethnic slur, the term has been used frequently by high profile media personalities, outlets, and figures in Hollywood.

    Notably, the “offensive” term did not generate public outcry – particularly from Cuomo – when it was used in the following instances:

    The Hardball host has unabashedly used “Fredo” in the past, calling Donald Trump Jr. the “Fredo-like son” of the First Family: (tweet here)

    That is not the only instance: (tweet here)

    The “ethnic slur” has been used by numerous figures. For example:

    A CNN spokesperson has indicated that the network “completely” supports Cuomo.

    “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup,” CNN’s Matt Dornic tweeted Monday evening. “We completely support him”:

    He also seemed to double down on Cuomo’s newfound position of categorizing “Fredo” as an ethnic slur, comparing it to Polish slurs.

    At least the Polish are smart enough to ban Muslim immigrants.

    He didn't say he was an anchor on CNN, he said that he was an actor on CNN.

    Italian is not an ethnicity, it's a nationality.
