“Punk-a** bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo responded to the heckler at a Shelter Island, New York bar in the expletive-laden clip. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather.” A CNN spokesperson backed Cuomo, saying in a statement: "Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.” ALSO: Sean Hannity is also backing Cuomo.
