Tom Hanks Swears On 'Good Morning America'; PTC Reacts

Tom Hanks swore on “Good Morning America” on Friday morning while attempting to promote his new movie “Cloud Atlas”. When speaking with Elizabeth Vargas, she challenged him to talk in character. He did, but the results weren’t exactly what she was looking for. He ended up dropping the F-bomb on live television!

Both parties apologized on the air for the kerfuffle and he even joked that they would use a seven-second delay for his next appearance on the show. Later, ABC released their official statement, saying, “This morning Tom Hanks used an expletive during a live interview on GMA with Elizabeth Vargas. They both immediately apologized on air, and the show was corrected for all the subsequent feeds.”

The Parents Television Council is already weighing in on the matter. They said in a statement, “Once again, a morning news show has allowed the harshest profanity to be broadcast into every living room and breakfast table in the country. 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.”

    It’s really sad that these people get their knickers in a knot whenever they hear a bad word or see a nipple on TV. What about all of the violence that is shown on TV here and no one says a peep? My kids will see part of a naked human body and that’s fine… that is natural. I hope they never have to see a violent crime or act… that can change a person for the worse.

    Down with the PTC! They shouldn’t matter enough that anyone even cares about what they think… Much less contact them for their “reactions” to things like this. I think we are able to decide what we do and do not want to see on TV and I’m getting sick and tired of someone else telling me what is best for me.

  • tom hanks

  • me
