Hollywood Actor and Director Tom Hanks has gotten into some hot water with The Parents Television Council after blurting out the “f-word” on Good Morning America this morning.
“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.”
ABC released a statement on the matter: “This morning Tom Hanks accidentally used an expletive during a live interview on ‘GMA’ with Elizabeth Vargas. They both immediately apologized on air, and the show was corrected for the all subsequent feeds.”
