Two F-Bombs Dropped On Live TV, One Surprising Outcome

AJ Clemente and David Ortiz

Scroll down for update…

When Janet Jackson’s nipple made its debut during the 2004 Super Bowl, the FCC slapped her with one of the biggest fines in television history.

But when Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz dropped an F-Bomb on live TV this past weekend, the FCC gave the star slugger a pass, saying, “He spoke from the heart.”

Ortiz wasn’t in a bar or in the team locker room when he uttered his ill-timed expletive. He dropped his F-bomb at crowded Fenway Park in Boston — and millions more on live TV heard him.

Using extremely poor judgment, Ortiz said, “This is our f—— city, and nobody’s going to dictate our freedom.”

But the hypocrites at the FCC sent the message that Ortiz’s “fleeting expletive” was heartfelt and more sincere than other similar incidents by celebrities which drew large fines.

As far as the FCC is concerned, Ortiz is akin to a hero. FCC chairman Julius Genachowsk tweeted on the official FCC Twitter account: “David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today’s Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston – Julius.”

Julius and the FCC probably won’t be so kind to A.J. Clemente, the news anchor at KFYR, an NBC affiliate based in Bismarck, N.D. Sunday was Clemente’s first day on the job, and his very first words uttered to the people of Bismarck were “F–kin’ s–t.”

Maybe Clemente can convince Julius at the FCC that he spoke from the heart?

Update: KFYR TV fired A.J. Clemente today for his profane utterance on the air.

“Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go,” he tweeted on Monday. “Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support.”

“Rookie mistake. I’m a free agent.Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive.Wish i didnt trip over my ‘Freaking Shoes’ out of the gate.”

    Ummm in 2004 during Super Bowl…chit..47-9 is 38 (Super Bowl is same age as my sister…I THINK) During Super Bowl 38; the city of Houston wasn’t really going through chit when Janet ruined her…ahh decided to pull her tidday out? Decided as in it was predetermined? Not an accident?

    You’re absolutely correct! Pearl has always looked the same. George Jefferson was on 32 when he started playing his role and he always looked the same. Guess its because his roof was gone. Isabelle Sanford was significantly older than Sherman Hemsley.

    I might be alone in this. But I felt bad for Phaedra. People always come for her like she’s the ONLY shady one on the show. I don’t even think she’s THE shadiest. But because she doesn’t hoop and holler and go off people try her. I still say that if she got backed into a corner she’d whip somebody’s azz…maybe not NeNe’s big Oscar Meyer azz, but I digress
    _______________________

    um Phaedra actually made me like her even more after this reunion. I thought she was the shady-est person on the show too but forreal, I think she gets a bad rep. She def. Kept miss twirl for the gods in her place the entire reunion. And also think NeNe straight lied on her about the whole calling her sister situation.

    anybody see Iyanla’s show with Sheree and Bob??? Personally I thought Iyanala was on some bullchit coddling that man especially when he admitted to not paying child support or seeing his children…and why was the focus on the boy like girls don’t need their fathers? I don’t like Sheree bit that chit was truly one sided, everytime Sheree opened her mouth Iyanla was shutting her down but Bob got to talk chit to her face with no interruptions…Iyanala was def on some fcuk chit

    ^^ I didn’t see the show but, I expect Iyanla to take sides. I’ve always liked her books but, when she got the show I kinda expected her to lose a lil integrity.
