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. Watch below:

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.
