Lawrence O'Donnell Accidentally Plays F-Word in Sidney Lumet Tribute (VIDEO)

Lawrence O'Donnell forgot to edit a good 'ol fashioned F-bomb on his show Monday night.

The "Last Word" host played a clip of Phillip Seymour Hoffman emphatically screaming the F-word multiple times in the movie "Before The Devil Knows Your Dead" as part of a Sidney Lumet montage. Lumet, the legendary filmmaker responsible for such classics as "Network" and "Dog Day Afternoon" died this past April from lymphoma; his memorial was held yesterday at Lincoln Center.

It's hard to believe this slipped under the radar, but pay attention to the video's 1:47 mark -- the last line of the tribute, no less -- to hear the expletive for yourself.
