In what may have been a technical glitch or a clever joke, Apple’s digital voice assistant Siri referred to CNN host Chris Cuomo as Fredo — the weak-minded Corleone brother from The Godfather movies — on Tuesday before the anomaly was apparently fixed.
Apple users began noticing the glitch Tuesday afternoon when they asked the question, “Siri, how old is Chris Cuomo?” Siri responded by saying that “Fredo Cuomo is 49 years old.” The display also referred to the CNN host as “Fredo Cuomo.”

Videos of users testing their Apple devices quickly sprung up, confirming the Siri glitch was widespread.

By Tuesday evening, the mistake was apparently fixed and Siri was referring the Chris Cuomo by his correct name. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Chris Cuomo was caught on video Sunday berating a man at bar who had called him “Fredo.” Cuomo launched into a profane diatribe, accusing the man of using a racial epithet against Italians.

“Fredo is from The Godfather, he was a weak brother,” the CNN anchor said. “Any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It’s a fucking insult to your people. It’s an insult to your fucking people. It’s like the n-word for us. Is that a cool fucking thing?”

The clip quickly went viral and even elicited a reaction from President Donald Trump, who wrote, “I thought Chris was Fredo also.”

The president’s 2020 campaign also began selling “Fredo Unhinged” T-shirts on Tuesday.

CNN spokesman Matt Dornic defended Cuomo, saying on Twitter: “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.

'wop' is kind of an ethnic slur.  "without papers".  just means Italians who had no papers.   not actually a derrogatory meaning, but a derrogatory connotation.

'kike' meant , kyklos.  because they had circle by their names.

i'm not sure 'fredo' is an ethnic slur.  because not all Italians are 'fredos'

nggr, the word that cannot be said, is simply Latin for black.

you can take ANY word and say it and laugh , as if it means something bad, and if everyone agrees it means something HORRIBLE, unspeakable, then it becomes an EMOTIONAL MEME.

an emotional MEME may not even have any basis in cognition.  it is pure emotion.  no reason.  it simply means, 'you're bad', 'you're dumb', you're evil

if an emotional meme is pure emotion, then it will ALWAYS be reacted to, with pure emotions because....that's the only reaction you could possibly have to an emotional meme.  its the only reaction that would make any logical sense, to something that doesn't make any sense, other than it is just 'fighting words'.

that is their sole purpose, it's a game, you agree that this is a 'fighting word', just like sex play password.  they are playing a fight game

"Kike" is from "kikel", the Yiddish word for circle. Illiterate jews coming through Ellis Island refused to sign the customary "X" where their name should be, because it looks like a Christian cross, so they drew a circle instead.

"Fredo" in itself is not an ethnic slur against Italians - many leftists call Don Jr "Fredo" and he's not Italian. It's just a slur to call in incompetent younger sibling.
The Godfather itself is more of an ethnic slur because it reinforces the stereotype that all Italians are in the mob.
