Conservative Group Wants CBS Investigated For F-Word By Super Bowl Quarterback
Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco issued a few adult words which were seen on television, and so the Parents Television Council wants to investigate CBS for not bleeping out the word.
“No one should be surprised that a jubilant quarterback might use profane language while celebrating a career-defining win, but that is precisely the reason why CBS should have taken precautions,” PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement. “Joe Flacco’s use of the F-word, while understandable, does not absolve CBS of its legal obligation to prevent profane language from being broadcast — especially during something as uniquely pervasive as the Super Bowl.”
During Flacco’s celebration with teammate Marshal Yanda, the starring quarterback appears to say, “This is f—-ing awesome.” Somone in the scrum also says “holy sh—.”
