CNN anchor Chris Cuomo went viral for all the wrong reasons this week when a stranger reportedly called him "Fredo," referencing Fredo Corleone, who's known as the "weakest brother" in The Godfather film franchise.

Cuomo, who was with his wife and daughter at the time, confronted the strangers in a profanity-laden warning in which he claimed "Fredo" was a slur for Italians and threatened to throw one of the men down the stairs.

Watch below:

One of the harassers claimed he thought Fredo was Cuomo's actual name, but Cuomo wasn't buying it:

"You did not think my name was f*cking Fredo, don't be a liar. Stand up like a man...Own what you said."

Cuomo later took to Twitter to address the video.

Some of Cuomo's Republican critics eagerly seized upon the video, mocking Cuomo for losing his cool and doubling down on the use of the term Fredo.

Even President Donald Trump, whose wife Melania spearheads an anti-bullying initiative, jeered Cuomo on Twitter.

As did the President's son Donald Trump Jr.

Junior has since spent the day retweeting "Fredo" remarks from his supporters.

But not even every Conservative is ready to pile on Cuomo. Some, like far-right Fox News host Sean Hannity, are coming to his defense.

Another far-right figure, Ben Shapiro, pointed out to the president that Cuomo's behavior wouldn't result in a red flag against him. Red flags for gun ownership have to be ordered by a judge.

People also found Trump Jr.'s claim that Cuomo was the "dumb brother" pretty laughable for obvious reasons.

There are many who still doubt that extremist political rhetoric being spread by far right conservatives in the United States is having a tangible impact on our culture.

But every day, disturbing hate-fueled incidents seem to be cropping up at an alarming frequency.

So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.
