FCC Will NOT Punish NBC

for Airing 'Bullsh*t' Chant

9/24/2012 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The FCC will not punish NBC for failing to cut the audio of a massive "bullsh*t" stadium chant that made it on the air during last night's Ravens vs. Patriots match up.

As we previously reported, the crowd in Baltimore erupted in a booming BS chant after believing the replacement refs blew another call. The chant went on for several minutes ... and at one point announcer Al Michaels called it the "loudest manure chant" he ever heard.

Now, a rep for the FCC tells us the org. will not go after NBC ... explaining, “There’s never been any penalties imposed for obscenities inadvertently heard over air.”

But if someone flashed a nipple, it would be a whole different ballgame.

At this point, I think everyone has realized that just about every kid has heard worse foul language on the school bus. Plus, most parents swear in front of their kids, whether or not they mean to do it. As long as parents tell their kids not to utter such bad words, I really don't see a problem. Unfortunatley there are far too many folks that want to put the blame on social media for their lack of parenting skills....
