LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Mayor Eric Garcetti was a little overly enthusiastic
during today’s rally celebrating the Los Angeles Kings’ Stanley Cup victory,
dropping an F-bomb while addressing thousands of fans at Staples Center, on
live television.
Garcetti, wearing a Kings jersey, stood at the microphone on the Staples
Center ice, and told the crowd there are a few rules in politics.
“They say never, ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never
swear, but this is a big (expletive) day,” Garcetti said, drawing a roar from
the crowd and laughs and applause from the Kings players.
And just to show that the off-color language was no mistake, the mayor’s
office then posted on Twitter, “There are a few rules in politics, one is
never swear, but this is a #BFD.”
Following the mayor at the microphone, former player and now Kings
president of business operations Luc Robitaille poked fun at Garcetti, saying,
“Well, we told our players not to cuss. Thanks.”
The rally was being televised live on Fox Sports West, and a commentator
apologized to viewers after the network failed to censor the offending word.
