Gold-Medal Swimmer Drops Accidental F-Bomb On Live TV, Then Almost Makes It Worse
Australia’s Kaylee McKeown captured the gold in the women’s 100-meter backstroke during a record-setting performance in Tokyo on Tuesday. Then, she enraptured social media with a post-race interview in which she dropped an F-bomb on TV:
McKeown realized her error immediately, covered her mouth and appeared to nearly say, “Oh shit!” before turning it into a celebratory yell.
Twitter users loved it:
“What would you like to say to your mum and your sister?”
“Fuck yeah oh shit… Woooo 🤙”
