MTV apologizes for Movie Awards swearing
MTV has issued an apology in response to criticism that the network's annual Movie Awards were wall-to-wall profanity on Sunday night. One review clocked more than 100 curse words in the 122-minute telecast. Most (but not all) were caught by censors:
The MTV Movie Awards is a live televised event known for irreverent comedy and a party atmosphere where our guests speak more freely than they otherwise might. While we aired the live broadcast with a delay, we were unable to mute every word that some might find objectionable. All of these words will be muted in subsequent airings.
We sincerely apologize to those in our audience who were offended by any objectionable words that might have slipped by for the live airing.
