A video released by conservative media personality Brandon Straka shows an unidentified man baiting the network's most-watched anchor at a party, calling him a slur and then arguing with him as others capture his response with recording devices.

In footage of the incident, which appears to have been secretly recorded by the heckler, Cuomo is seen telling the man it's derogatory to call Italians "Fredo", conflating the "fucking insult" to saying the "n-word".

Warning: This story contains a video with explicit language. 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".

"Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup", CNN spokesman Matt Dornic said in a statement on Twitter.

"We completely support him", they concluded.

Get your jokes in now before everyone else has already made them.

Hong Kong protests in 300 words
Some Hong Kong legal experts say the official description of terrorism could lead to the use of anti-terror laws. Protests have escalated over the past two months to the point of taking over the semi-autonomous Chinese city.

"Are you Italian?" Cuomo asks one of the men. This person wanted to start some s*** with Cuomo and got more than he bargained for. "It's an insult to your f-kin" people.

"Yeah, well if you wanna play, then we'll f--ing play", Cuomo tells him.

Chris was in NY Sunday when a guy approached him and called him "Fredo". the insulting name of a character in "The Godfather". a name that connotes weakness. Cuomo was particularly put off by the name and the underlying meaning of being called that. "You call me "Fredo" it's like I call you punk b-ch, you like that?" "I'll f*cking throw you down the stairs like a f*cking punk", Cuomo says with his temper flaring. "He's out with his 9 year old daughter, and his wife, and this guy is being a jackass in front of his family.

You're in for it", the man said.

He added: "Hey @ChrisCuomo, take it from me, "Fredo" isn't the N word for Italians, it just means you're the dumb brother". "Own what you said".

"I assume @cnn not available for comment", tweeted Donald Trump Jr., who shared the video. Cuomo's not the only one who should be embarrassed by this video going viral. "He deserves the apology".
