Chris Cuomo tells heckler, “I’ll fucking ruin your shit”

In a behind-the-scenes video that occurred at some point last week, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo got in the face with a Trump supporter who reportedly approached him asking for an autograph. But things quickly got nasty when the heckler called Cuomo “Fredo.”

“My name is Chris Cuomo — I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from the Godfather.” He said, “They use that as an Italian aspersion… It’s a fucking insult to your people… It’s like the N-word for us.”

The heckler said that he was more reasonable in person. “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television.”

“If you want to play, we’ll fucking play. If you’ve got something to say about I’m on television, then say it.” After the man said he didn’t have a problem, Cuomo went off. “Don’t fucking insult me like that. It’s like I call you punk bitch — you like that? You called me Fredo… You called me Fredo. You know my name isn’t fucking Fredo.

“You did not think my name was Fredo; don’t be a liar. If you want to be a man, stand up like a man… Own what you said… You’re gonna have a fucking problem. I’m going to fucking ruin your shit; I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.”

He encouraged the man to take a swing at him, and when someone attempted to intervene, he said, “Watch your fucking hands!”

There was a chorus of “Chris, stop!” in the background.

Cuomo is off this week on vacation.

In a statement, CNN spokesman Matt Dornic said, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”
