LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Mayor Eric Garcetti dropped the “F-bomb” Monday while congratulating the Los Angeles Kings on their victory in the Stanley Cup Final.
“There are two rules in politics: they say never ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never swear, but this is a big f—in’ day; way to go guys!” he said while holding what appeared to be an aluminum Bud Light bottle.
A post on the official Twitter account for the mayor’s office reflected Garcetti’s comments: “There are a few rules in politics, one is never swear, but this is a #BFD”.
FOX Network broadcaster Patrick O’Neal apologized for the mayor during a lull in the rally. Former player and now Kings president of business operations Luc Robitaille also poked fun at Garcetti, saying, “Well, we told our players not to cuss. Thanks.”
Garcetti was alongside the late night host in his Los Angeles studio.
“You’ve got to remember, we didn’t win at lawn-bowling, I mean we won in hockey,” Garcetti said. “So, kids out there, do not say what your mayor said today.”
The LA Kings won the title on home ice with a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Friday night.
