2-year-old Cussing on “Modern Family” Funny or Faux Pas?

During taping the child said, “Fudge,” but it was bleeped out to sound like she’s saying the F- word on Wednesday’s episode of Modern Family.  The episode focuses on it, as the episode is even titled “Little Bo Bleep.” Steven Levitan, creator and executive producer of the sitcom with Christopher Lloyd, told the Television Critics Association last week that he’s “proud and excited” about the F-word plot line.

“We thought it was a very natural story since, as parents, we’ve all been through this,” Levitan said. “We are not a sexually charged show. It has a very warm tone so people accept it more. I’m sure we’ll have some detractors.”

Things sure have come a long way since the boy in A Christmas Story dropped the F-bomb.

What do you think?  Was this just done for laughs, or was it to identify with parents who have been there?
