Tom Hanks shocked the world this morning by dropping the “F-Bomb” on live television.
The Oscar-winning actor was imitating the English accent of a character from his new movie “Cloud Atlas,” when he made a remark about his “f–king boots.”
Host Elizabeth Vargas was mortified.
Both Hanks and Vargas profusely apologized to the audience, with Hanks joking that the next time he came on the show, he would likely be subject to a seven second delay.
Needless to say, the Parents Television Council is not pleased.
“Once again, a morning news show has allowed the harshest profanity to be broadcast into every living room and breakfast table in the country,” PTC director of public policy Dan Isett said in a statement.
“This is just another in a long, sad string of similar instances where all of the major network morning shows have permitted this inappropriate and offensive content. These cannot and must not be dismissed as ‘mistakes,’ and it’s time for the networks to step up, take responsibility for what they broadcast, and ensure that this never happens again.”
Tom Hanks is still awesome.
