Original Message A cast member in “The Godfather” sounded off on CNN anchor Chris Cuomo following his viral “Fredo” rant.

Gianni Russo played Vito Corleone’s wife-abusing son-in-law, Carlo Rizzi, in the seminal 1972 mobster movie. In a recent interview, he shared his unabashed thoughts on Cuomo’s intense, profanity-filled rant after someone referred to him as “Fredo," a likely reference to the weakling brother played by John Cazale in the iconic film.

"No, punk-ass b—es from the right call me 'Fredo.' My name is Chris Cuomo. I'm an anchor on CNN," a heated Cuomo responded. "'Fredo' was from 'The Godfather.' He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur — are any of you Italian?... It's a f--king insult to your people. It's an insult to your f--kin' people. It's like the N-word for us. Is that a cool f--king thing?"
