American actor/musician, Jared Leto - of Fight Club, and American Psycho fame - caused outrage in the the little old UK last night when he shockingly said 'fuck' on national television.
The amazing outburst came on gay comedian Alan Carr's Channel 4 show - Alan Carr, Chatty Man - when Leto, who looked like somebody had bizarrely dumped an ice cream on his head appeared to stumble over his words, inadvertently (?) uttering the 'F' word.
"Sorry," Leto told his host. "Can I say 'fuck' on TV?" Leto enquired.
"You can say 'cunt' if you like," replied Alan Carr.
So Leto did.
Which prompted outrage in Middle England. Indeed, such was the level of the outrage that Mrs Enid Bagshott of Great Malvern hurled a plantpot, containing her prize geranium through the screen of her 50" plasma screen HD TV set.
Similar incidents of outraged wanton hooliganism from the middle classes swiftly followed, with a Carshalton man attempting to stab himself in the head with knitting needles, an Ascot spinster sexually molesting an alsation dog in a fish and chip shop, and a Cirencester man shooting his local vicar in both knees with a nail gun.
Authorities are still assessing the fallout from the climax of the interview, when Leto told Alan Carr:
"You are one fucking funny cunt."
Scouse comedian John Bishop then went on to talk about wanking, and Kylie Minogue broke a dish.
Former Sex Pistol, John Lydon stated that the whole swearing thing had already been done - years ago. When it had shock value.
The outlook is not good.
More as we get it.
