The bit was dedicated to those participating in the internet trend that sees people pranking their parents by telling them that their favorite celebrity has died. Cohen explained to his audience, “For the last two weeks people have been sending me videos of their loved ones being told I’m dead.”
He continued, “I have no desire to experience people’s reactions to me dying. I am scared enough of dying in reality without having to watch bizarre simulations of it over and over again.”
Fine so far, right? Well, here’s where things got a bit messy. He continued, “So let me be clear, don’t make, distribute or tag me in any fucking—” before cutting himself off.
The Bravo host gasped and covered his mouth, eliciting laughs from his guests and audience, before finishing his sentence with, “… Andy Cohen death reaction videos, you freaks.” He questioned, “Why is this even a thing, it’s not even funny?”
Cohen went on to share that this occurrence was his first time dropping the F-bomb on the show, adding, “I’d like to thank all the TikTok moms for your tears. I was very touched, then horribly depressed. Stop now, you TikTokers.”
Following the live broadcast, he hopped onto Twitter to address the situation with his fans. Noting his previous profanity-free record, he wrote, “First time in 13 1/2 years!!! Sorry guys!” Deadline reports that the production team was able to catch the F-bomb and “bleep it out” for those watching from home since the show broadcasts on a “slight delay.”
Cohen isn’t the first celebrity to get worked up over the viral trend. Over the weekend, the son of Angela Bassett issued a since-deleted apology on Instagram after receiving heavy backlash for his video participating in the trend where he told his parents, Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, that Michael B. Jordan had died.
Bassett’s son, Slater Vance, said in a video apology, “I would sincerely like to apologize to Michael B. Jordan’s entire family, his extended family, and him directly as he is an idol of mine.”
He went on to admit that the trend is disrespectful and his participation was in poor representation of himself and his family.
