You would expect things to get fun with Chelsea Handler on Piers Morgan‘s CNN show, but in lieu of Handler dropping any raw language, CNN accidentally aired an uncensored “f*ck” on the air while playing a clip from The Wolf of Wall Street. Yep, that’ll happen with Martin Scorsese movies.
Morgan brought the clip up because of an anecdote of Handler’s involving Jane Fonda and quaaludes, the latter playing a key role in a particularly hilarious scene from the Scorsese film, and so that scene played while Handler talked, and you hear Leonardo DiCaprio moan, “Fuck!” before hearing the audio hastily being cut.
This wouldn’t be a big deal if cable news felt freer to use profanity on the air, but just a tip: of all the movies to show clips of on-air, maybe you might not want it to be the movie that broke the f-word record.
You can watch the clip below, via CNN:
