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.”
