"Sorry for the F-bomb," Brian Williams said. "We have no control of what's in the concession speeches."

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams apologized on behalf of his network after it broadcast a vulgarity from Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke.

"I'm so fucking proud of you guys," O'Rourke said during his concession speech Tuesday night, after losing his election to incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.

The curse word was not censored on MSNBC.

"Sorry for the F-bomb," Williams said after the remark. "We have no control of what's in the concession speeches."

Fox News and CNN were not broadcasting O'Rourke's concession speech. C-SPAN also aired the curse word uncensored.

O'Rourke, a popular candidate among Hollywood donors, led the race for much of Tuesday but is now projected to lose to Cruz.
