In an apparent glitch, Apple's digital voice assistant Siri referred to CNN host Chris Cuomo as 'Fredo,' just days after the new anchor exploded on an unsuspecting heckler who called him the name.

Fredo is the weak-minded Corleone brother from The Godfather movies, not a racist slur as Cuomo claimed in the video.

Apple users were startled when they ask Siri this question:

“Siri, how old is Chris Cuomo?”

Siri responded by saying that “Fredo Cuomo is 49 years old.”

The display then bizarrely referred to the CNN host as “Fredo Cuomo.”

Before the video could be debunked as some kind hoax, many other users tested their Apple devices and confirmed he Siri glitch was widespread.

But the apparent glitch was apparently fixed by Tuesday evening, and Siri was referring the Chris Cuomo.

Apple has not responded to a request for comment.

Cuomo was filmed exploding in an aggressive rage after a Trump supporter called him "Fredo" while asking for a photo.

Video footage shows Cuomo losing his temper and threatening a man with physical violence during a verbal altercation posted to Youtube on Monday.

The clip was initially uploaded to Youtube channel “THAT’S THE POINT with Brandon,” and has since gone viral on social media after being shared by a number of prominent personalities, including Donald Trump Jr.

According to the Wikipedia entry for “Fredo Corleone,” Fredo "is the second son of the mafia don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro).

"Fredo is the younger brother of Sonny (James Caan) and the elder brother to Michael (Al Pacino) and sister, Connie (Talia Shire).

"Corleone family consigliere Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall) is his informally adopted brother."

Being weaker and less intelligent than his brothers, Fredo has little power or status within the Corleone crime family.
