Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco Drops F-Bomb on CBS (Video)
Baltimore Ravens quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco had plenty to celebrate after his team’s victory Sunday night -- and his raw words expressing his feelings made it to air in all their glory.
“This is f---ing awesome,” he exclaimed while embracing teammate Marshal Yanda after the game. The offending word was captured by a boom microphone and aired uncensored on CBS. The network’s commentators did not acknowledge the expletive, and it is unclear if the event was being broadcast on a delay, which might have allowed the network to bleep the word.
Flacco’s f-bomb lit up Twitter, with Donald Trump Jr. writing, “Flacco just dropped the F-bomb on national TV and no one edited it out. Someone is getting fired.”
After the game, CBS announced Flacco will be a guest on Monday's Late Show With David Letterman, marking the ninth year in a row the Super Bowl-winning quarterback has appeared on the show following the game.
Flacco’s Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31. He threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions.
