LA Mayor Eric Garcetti drops F-bomb, drinks beer as California loves the classless

Woohoo and way to go Los Angeles! Your Mayor stooped to low levels to prove he’s a man of the people with his classless behavior at a LA Kings rally. Public profanity always raises the bar for public servants and it’s good know where their leaders is on that scale.

Eric Garcetti Mayor F bomb beerEric Garcetti intentionally dropped an F-bomb on live TV while waving around an empty beer bottle.

“There are two rules in politics,” he said to a cheering crowd at a rally inside Staples Center, as he held a beer bottle in his hand.

“They say never, ever be pictured with a drink in your hand, and never swear — but this is a big f—— day.”

He added: “Way to go guys!” as he headed back to his seat among a roar of approval from the crowd.

The Kings have a legacy of lowering the bar of class for the sports world as two years ago, goalie Jonathan Quick, during his intoxicated reflection on the season, dropped not one, not two, but three F-bombs.

It’s only worsened as Twitter lit up with support: “He’s got our vote,” was one post. “Our mayor. The best,” said another.

So teachers, parents, or just civil citizens that feel that language is inappropriate or offensive – get over yourselves. It’s not like anyone heard it…

The speech was carried live on Fox Sports West with no bleeps. A few moments later, an announcer offered the network’s apology: “On behalf of Fox Sports West, we’d like to apologize for the inappropriate language heard earlier back inside.”

Fox Sports West spokeswoman Whitney Burak said while the network has censors monitoring live broadcasts, no one expected the mayor, of all people, to need a bleep.

“Obviously, we didn’t know he was going to do that,” Burak said.

She said as far as she knew, the Federal Communications Commission has not contacted the station.

Ok, well, teachers, parents, or just civil citizens that feel that language is inappropriate or offensive – get over yourselves because the Washington Redskins name is racist, get angry about that.
