A man went out to a restaurant wearing an "**** Me, I'm Irish" shirt out in public, and the man was ejected out of the restaurant. He believes it was wrong to be kicked out because he was entitled to free speech, but is he really covered by the 1st Amendment?
Slacker, Steve, and even Producer Dave (heck, everybody has encountered this) have found instances of swearing and profanity in public events. Doesn't matter if you are at a sporting event or restaurant, there will always be that guy who swears in public (usually that guy is Slacker, but at least he feels bad about it).
I'll be the first to admit, my Dad isn't one to watch his language...especially around the house. I've heard a lot of swearing in my day, but usually it's back at home or if I'm with my parents' friends. Even I'm guilty of swearing, but I try my best to not do it around kids. Because if there is one thing I cannot stand is kids half my age who openly swear. So for this one, I'll keep my mouth shut.
Do you think free speech entitles people to public profanity?
Keep it classy,
