As TGP previously reported, CNN received a huge backlash after they threatened to release the identity of an anonymous Reddit user who created the anti-CNN video, but that didn’t stop Chris Cuomo from doubling down early Wednesday morning. Cuomo sent out a tweet saying, “Should CNN reveal the name of Reddit user who made Trump wrestling video? Had a lot of bigoted and hateful material on page and website.”
Cuomo deleted the tweet minutes after posting it. Perhaps his handlers at CNN advised him to as they have possibly committed a FEDERAL FELONY by threatening the Reddit user. Twitter users hammered CNN with more memes and videos using the hashtag ‘CNNBlackmail’. CNN just doesn’t understand how this works.
CNN host Chris Cuomo was confronted today over why he deleted a tweet that asked whether the identity of the individual who created the infamous Trump wrestling meme should have been revealed.
The New Day host was caught up in the ‘CNN blackmail’ controversy when he tweeted, “Should CNN reveal name of Reddit user who made trump wrestling video? Had a lot of bigoted and hateful material on page and website.”
Cuomo was asked by the Rebel’s Laura Loomer why he “deleted a tweet that encouraged the extortion of a Reddit user who posted a meme about CNN?”
Via Rebel Media:
“There was no encouraging any extortion, he wasn’t a teenager and the reason I took the tweet down was because the decision had already been made, I thought it was more conditional about whether or not his name was gonna be released and it wasn’t – his name was already going to be kept private because of his own actions and their concerns about his privacy, so it didn’t make any sense,” said Cuomo.
Cuomo stuck to the party line, asserting CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski didn’t threaten meme creator HanA**holeSolo and deleting his own tweet about the subject was typical behavior.
