UPDATED: Apple Siri corrects 'Chris Cuomo' to 'Fredo Cuomo' after viral video


(Screenshot / Washington Examiner) Any Apple iPhone user who attempted to obtain details about CNN host Chris Cuomo from Siri received a surprising correction Tuesday.

When users used the voice feature to inquire about Cuomos age by asking Siri, how old is Chris Cuomo? The Apple virtual assistant responded on Tuesday, Fredo Cuomo is 49 years old. Siri is said to source information from Google to provide answers to voice questions.

It is not yet clear how the change was made or who is responsible for the edit. Cuomo, the younger brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, condemned being called Fredo after a weekend altercation in which a Trump supporter called him the name. Fredo is the brother of Michael Corleone in The Godfather movies, and often associated with being the lesser sibling of someone powerful.

Cuomo responded to the the name by telling the man that Ill f--king ruin your shit! He then explained to the individual that being called Fredo was akin to a black person being called the N-word. [Ill] f--king throw you down these stairs like a f--king punk, Cuomo said toward the end of the altercation.

He later apologized, saying, This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose. UPDATE: Moments after this story was published, Apple Siri reverted back to referring to Cuomo as Chris instead of Fredo.
