Megyn Kelly of Fox News has officially joined the ranks of reporters caught in a cursing flub live on air.
She certainly isn’t the first though, countless news anchors have come before her.
Check out the funniest TV swearing accidents, including Megyn Kelly’s, in our round up of the best of the best in embarrassing bloopers!
Host of “The Kelly File,” Megyn Kelly was having a standard day on the job until she was ready to introduce her next guest, former Arkansas governor and Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, to the show.
“Joining me now, former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee, who’s the host of F-kabee-Huckabee!” Kelly quickly corrected herself, as Huckabee smirked at the flub on the split screen video feed.
While neither Huckabee nor Kelly discussed the blooper during the conversation, but she later commented “Something else that happened on the program is also getting a lot of attention on Twitter,” when engaging with social media later in the program.
Luckily, Kelly’s f-bomb gaffe was not nearly as bad as it could have been – first, because she quickly corrected herself in the slip-of-the-tongue moment, and second, she didn’t mean to curse at all – and so far, it doesn’t look like there will be any repercussions.
On the other hand, there are plenty of other reporters who didn’t far so well in the consequences department; especially in the case of anchors who were actually caught swearing explicitly, outside of a typical misspeaking incident.
