MTV Caves In, Apologizes for Movie Awards’ F-Bomb Frenzy
Apparently, MTV has learned to choose its words a lot more carefully in the last couple of days.
As anyone who watched the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday realizes, the ceremony featured a virtual flurry of F-bombs, several of which managed to evade the censors’ bleep buttons during the show’s live East Coast feed. And as Celebuzz readers are already aware, the free-flowing profanity attracted the ire of several moral watchdogs, in particular the Parents Television Council.
On Tuesday, presumably bowing to pressure from these groups, MTV issued a mea culpa for the show’s potty-mouthed antics:
“The MTV Movie Awards is a live televised event known for irreverent comedy and a party atmosphere where our guests speak more freely than they otherwise might. While we aired the live broadcast with a delay, we were unable to mute every word that some might find objectionable. All of these words will be muted in subsequent airings. We sincerely apologize to those in our audience who were offended by any objectionable words that might have slipped by for the live airing.”
Well, that should satisfy the offended groups, right? Sure it will…
