Joe Flacco’s foul language following the Baltimore Ravens’ Super Bowl win on Sunday night may put CBS, the network that televised the game, in hot water with the FCC, according to Politico.
Following the win, the team’s first championship in more than a decade, Flacco was caught repeatedly using an expletive that CBS wasn’t able to bleep out before it was broadcast into millions of homes.
The news website, which covers politics and government, reports that the Parents Television Council asked the commission to investigate why the network allowed the word to be broadcast.
The network has been in trouble with censors before.
CBS broadcast the Super Bowl in 2004 and aired singer Janet Jackson’s infamous "wardrobe malfunction."
The network was initially fined $550,000 by the FCC, but was cleared of the fine after an eight-year battle, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Who do you think is to blame, Joe Flacco or CBS? Should there be any repercussions for this incident?
