Anderson Cooper Apologizes For Airing Uncensored Profanities

Anderson Cooper apologized Tuesday night for failing to censor curse words during his show.

While reporting on the trial of Michael Dunn, the Florida man charged with fatally shooting a 17-year-old boy, CNN's "AC 360" aired video of Dunn's testimony that contained several profanities.

Dunn told the court that the boy threatened him by saying, “I should kill that motherf*cker” and that later, right before retrieving his gun to shoot, the teen said "this sh*t’s going down now." CNN played the tape without bleeping out either of those words.

Cooper took to Twitter to apologize quickly after the segment was over and said that the network did not intend for those words to be aired:

His viewers seemed to understand the mistake:
