Pull up a seat, kid. Uncle Tony has a life lesson for you. You’re going to need some context before we get started. You need to know who “Fredo” is. Fredo is from the Godfather. Great movie. Fredo is the guy who is weak or stupid. It's not exactly a compliment. Got it? Good.
So here is the story- Chris Cuomo; you know the guy from CNN? He apparently got called Fredo and didn’t take too kindly to it. In fact, he found it to be a heinous insult. Cuomo was caught on tape losing his mind, screaming profanities and ended up getting into a verbal fistacuff at a party after being called Fredo. He then likened it to the N-word before trying to goad these guys who called him Fredo into fighting him.
Now, lets take the time to examine Mr. Cuomo and his actions and use it to teach a valuable lesson.
“In the real world, guys who say ‘you want to throw down’ those are weird guys. If someone wants to fight, then BAM you knock him out. You don’t give him any warning… Cuomo what are you doing? You’re on TV, you don’t need to do this. You make millions of dollars a year. You don't need to prove how tough you are to a couple of guys who you are never going to see again. Do yourselves a favor- don’t be Chris Cuomo."
