Did you watch Modern Family last night?
If you did, then you saw the HIGHlarious scene where little Lily accidentally dropped the F-bomb.
Well, critics of the curse word, more specifically, the members of the Parents Television Council, were shocked that the show would allow the young actress, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, to use the word on television. Some are even calling it "child abuse."
But, did they REALLY believe that the writers and producers would allow the little girl to use the actual word?
Yes, they did!!
Jesse Tyler Ferguson tells the critics to not fret - they actually had her use the word "fudge."
Of course they did! Duh!
"I can assure you she did not actually say the F-word on the show. We said the very innocent word fudge, but people are all up in arms about that. This is not child abuse!
We're not making her cuss. What she does on her own time, we don't know but…
I think that with a show like ours, we're so grateful it's a hit, it's a sign of a show being well-loved and being a hit. When people find anything to nit-pick about, it's a good thing I think."
Lily's other on-screen dad, Eric Stonestreet also joked about the sitch:
"For fornication sake people! Again, how bout actually SEEING what you're against before u r so STRONGLY against it. How bout redirecting energies…2 reading 2 the elderly, picking up litter, feeding the hungry..So focused on the 'cussing' in tonight's Modern Family, everyone seems to have neglected Ty, Jesse, Ed's, and my full frontal scene."
But the PTC isn't having any of it. The ysay:
"It's not suitable language for a child that young in the real world, and it's not suitable language for a child that young on television, either."
Eh, get over it people. Every kid says the accidental curse word every once in a while. It just happens and it's a part of parenting and a part of growing up.
We though the show was hilar as usual. Modern Famz all the way!
