(Warning: Explicit language featured in above video clip).
It’s safe to say that MTV has moved from “edgy” to vulgar in the space of a single awards show presentation. The above clip is only one of the moments when the F-bomb slipped past the censors with incredible ease during the two-hour presentation of the MTV Movie Awards, a live event which made the FCC positively crazy.
From the word go, the awards show was peppered with F-bombs. This video features Peter Facinelli, better known to Twilight Saga fans as Dr. Carlisle Cullen, but he is certainly not the only celeb who decided to throw propriety (and federal communications regulations) out the window. The uncensored F-bomb was also slipped through censors by Get Him to the Greek star Jonah Hill, former Funky Bunch founder Mark Wahlberg, and more.
Twilight’s ensemble acceptance speech for Best Movie, led by the good doctor himself, is one to remember - and not just because the Saga took almost every award at the event.

Update: Turns out I was wrong. Skip to the end to find out how.
Fans of South Park noticed a striking change in the second half of the “200/201” episode, which gained some attention from a radical Muslim website earlier this week. In the first half of the episode, which aired April 14, a battle developed over ownership of Mohammed. A group of celebrities including Tom Cruise, Rob Reiner, Oraph Winfrey and every other celeb who’s ever been depicted on the show battled a group of gingers who were previously featured in a South Park episode of their own. The two groups began warring over him because they wanted his power. In the episode, the show’s two hundredth, Mohammad was shown wearing a bear costume because his image cannot be depicted.
I’m guessing this wasn’t the kind of “entertainment” ABC was hoping to see from Adam Lambert.
At tonight’s American Music Awards, the American Idol finalist raised eyebrows higher than his own hairstyle. During an S&M-laced performance of “For Your Entertainment,” Lambert leads a male dancer around the stage with a leash, simulates oral sex and then later kisses a male keyboardist—all on live TV. (Just in case you hadn’t already heard—he’s gay.)
Although it’s unclear which portions ABC was prepared for, E!‘s Marc Malkin said the kiss was not the cards. “Very good source tells me that ABC and producers did NOT know adam lambert was going to makout w/keyboardist…” Malkin tweeted.

Kathy Griffin’s Emmy acceptance speech, which was taped, will be edited before it airs on the upcoming E! channel broadcast. E! will show the taped portion of the Emmys on Saturday, though the prime time Emmys will be broadcast live on FOX Sunday night. In a Monday statement, The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences called Griffin’s remarks “offensive” and said they would not be part of the E! telecast. Here’s what Griffin said: “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.” She then held up her word and announced, “This award is my god now!” Religious critics are already calling Griffin’s words a “hate speech” and “blasphemous.”
