Fox’s favorite NFL analyst, Terry Bradshaw, found himself at the center of some controversy, after he dropped the F-word, in all its glory, during a commercial break.
The in-joke between Bradshaw and co-host Jimmy Johnson was caught on camera during one of the shows “sneak peaks,” which it gives from time to time, showing what is going on in the studio during a break.
Terry Bradshaw and Johnson can be seen laughing away as they walk onto the stage, at which point Bradshaw turns round to Johnson and says:
“Besides, I wouldn’t have f***** his old ugly-ass mother anyway. God dang. I’ve got more pride than that,” as the two men merrily laugh away.
Fox, of course, issued an official apology for the gaffe:
“FOX Sports apologizes for the inadvertent and inappropriate language heard during a commercial break on Friday’s edition of FOX Football Daily on FOX Sports 1. The personalities in the studio, including Terry Bradshaw, were unaware that we’d be going to the set live at that time. We apologize to Terry and viewers who unfortunately heard the comments. We are reviewing our procedures to make sure this does not happen again.”
The incident is highly embarrassing for both Terry Bradshaw and Jimmy Johnson. The network was clear in its full apology but at least it shows that there is a human side to celebrities and television personalities.
