Chris Cuomo has a viral meltdown a couple of weeks ago after someone called him Fredo. Trump weighed in saying "I thought Chris was Fredo also". lol.

I know. But this is more about whether the term Fredo is an ethic slur. And I wanted a poll. So far NO ONE thinks it is. Any Italians vote yet?

Would he have felt better if the guy called him Curly or Shemp?

Of course it isn't an ethnic slur. Cuomo is just being a Fredo about it.

Lets face facts.

While Chris is successful, he's not as successful as Andrew.

Fredo was a lessor success of his brothers.

Therefore Chris is being compared to Fredo.

No slur, but a very thin skinned person.

Not a slur... but Cuomo definitely has weak little brother issues to deal with.

Chris is smart.
He’s not dumb...like everybody says. He’s smart, and he wants respect.


(And if you dont get it, it means you haven’t watched The Godfather enough times.)
