This is probably not how you want your “Saturday Night Live” career. New cast member Jenny Slate appeared to let the mother of all curse words loose on Saturday.
The slip occurred late in the season premiere during a sketch called “Biker Chick Chat” featuring Slate, Kristen Wiig and host Megan Fox. The sketch had the two of them using the word “frickin'” several times in every sentence, and at one point Slate appeared to slip and use the non-broadcast-approved version of the word instead.
She then pursed her lips, and the camera cut away to Wiig’s next line as the crowd let out a bit of nervous laughter. Here’s the portion of the sketch with the f-word.
The slip didn’t appear in the West Coast broadcast, which seemed to dub an extra “frickin'” over the f-word.
Slate’s slip calls to mind a similar incident on the show in 1981, when cast member Charles Rocket said “I’d like to know who the f**k did it” at the end of an episode that featured a running parody of the “Who shot J.R.?” storyline on “Dallas.” He was fired soon after that.
