Baltimore Ravens quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco had plenty to celebrate after his team’s victory Sunday night – and his raw choice of words expressing his feelings made it to air in all their glory.
“This is f—king awesome,” he exclaimed while embracing 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 join David Letterman Monday as a guest on the network's The Late Show, marking the ninth year in a row the Super Bowl-winning quarterback has appeared on the show.
Flacco’s Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31. He threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions.
