Despite protests by the Parents Television Council and a student organization called the “No Cussing Club” (really?), ABC aired a controversial episode of ‘Modern Family’ last night in which Lily, Mitchell and Cam’s adopted daughter, uttered the “F-bomb.”

Of course, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, the actress who plays Lily, didn’t actually say the naughty word during filming. Instead, she said the word “fudge” and producers bleeped it out in order to create the desired effect.

Still, several groups condemned the episode and called it “in poor taste,” arguing that such a portrayal could inspire similar bad behavior in children.

Watch the clip below from the episode ‘Little Bo Bleep’ and tell us what you think. Is the scene really a big deal?
