Peter Facinelli comments on f-bomb excess at 2010 MTV Movie Awards

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: It seems that Kristen Stewart is not the only Twilight star stepping forth to comment on the implications of questionable statements. Following the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, during which Peter Facinelli accepted the award for Best Movie on behalf of the “New Moon” cast and crew, both Facinelli and MTV commented on his remarks.

“I’ve never heard the word f*ck used so many times in one evening”, began Facinell in his original acceptance speech. “So I’ll say that this [award] is pretty f*cking cool!” That wasn’t the end—he went on to use the f-word alongside each person who he thanked, with the exception of Stephenie Meyer (of whom he said “I’m not gonna curse with you because you’re mormon”).

As reported by the New York Daily News, he later commented to EW.com, “My acceptance speech was meant as a satirical commentary to poke fun at the record-breaking number of f-bombs dropped during the show. Secretly, I hope that David Mamet tuned in last night in case he’s prepping a revival of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross.’”

MTV commented on the speech as well. Like Facinelli’s, its tone was similarly unapologetic. “The MTV Movie Awards is a live televised event known for irreverent comedy and a party atmosphere where our guests speak more freely than they otherwise might. While we aired the live broadcast with a delay, we were unable to mute every word that some might find objectionable. All of these words will be muted in subsequent airings. We sincerely apologize to those in our audience who were offended by any objectionable words that might have slipped by for the live airing.”

    Thanks Kim, I love your articles. They are always factual and positive. I love all things Twilight and I really dont understand all the hate these young talented kids are getting. Kristen is the new Tephlon Don as far as I’m concernd! I will continue to support these actors and watch while they make the world keep guessing and wondering . Why because with all the serious stuff going on in the world this is better to some than a soap opera. In case my sense of humor was not caught let me spell it out.!If they are together its noones business! It is clear they have connection that is not going to be broken easily by stupid rumors. They keep roaring back at the haters! People should sit back and enjoy the ride because they will be around awhile.It seems people are more interesed in hateing these 2 than the Gulf coast and the War! Wow that speaks volumes about people!!
