The CNN anchor was caught on video flying into an abject rage at a man for calling him "Fredo" - an apparent insult referencing Fredo Corleone, the weak, dopey brother in "The Godfather".

"Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup", the statement read. "We completely support him", wrote Matt Dornic, a CNN vice president and spokesman.

The video, which was widely shared on social media on Monday, showed Cuomo getting agitated at a man for referring to him as "Fredo", which he claimed was an insult used against him by people on the right.

In response to Mr. Trump also insisting "Fredo" isn't "the N word for Italians, it just means you're the dumb brother", Mr. Dornic trolled the president's family. "I'll f-- throw you down these stairs like a f-- punk". Unlikely though it may sound, TTP says that the man featured in the video did not know Cuomo's real name as he heard of him only through The Rush Limbaugh show, who repeatedly referred to Cuomo as "Fredo".

On Monday night, CNN also said it stood by the host.

"I say good for @ChrisCuomo", he tweeted. It's a f--ing insult to your people.

Warning: This story contains a video with explicit language.

Cuomo got some support, including from Fox News rival Sean Hannity, who tweeted Cuomo deserved an apology, and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who said such comments happen "all the time" and they are "quite racist".

"You're a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television", the first man tells Cuomo. This person wanted to start some s*** with Cuomo and got more than he bargained for.

"Any of you Italian?" "It's an insult to your f**king people!"

"Are you Italian?" Cuomo asks someone out of the frame.

"Guys, I'm Italian. "Fredo" is not an ethnic slur", wrote Emily Zanotti, an editor at the conservative outlet the Daily Wire. My name is Chris Cuomo.

The ephemeral meaning of words - and this case, fictional characters names - has never been on clearer display here, as Don Jr.is far from the only opinion that matters.

Brandon Recor, the channel's host, told The Washington Post the man in the confrontation sent him the video. claiming he went up to Cuomo to ask for a picture.
