On Wednesday night, ABC aired an episode of Modern Family during which its youngest character repeatedly dropped the F-bomb to laughs.
During the episode, entitled "Little Bo Bleep," the show's two-year-old character Lily repeatedly uses an expletive to her parents' chagrin--and half-hearted amusement.
Although the show bleeped out the actual word, the episode, even before it aired, caught the attention of The No Cussing Club, which protested the episode, and in turn created a general media firestorm over making a joke over a toddler's swearing. The club, founded by a Brigham Young University student, has since amassed thousands of signatures from people in protest of the show.
According to the Los Angeles Times, some of the show's actors have since fired back at the club's critique, arguing that the Viagra advertisements aired during the episode are more harmful than the act of swearing itself.
