The Frenzy: Shatner, Twitter and “$#!’

Generally accepted, censoring a profanity visually looks like a series of symbols. CBS created a show based on the popular Twitter account shitmydadsays, however they took the word shit and replaced it with ‘$#!’. According to the Parents Television Council that was not good enough and they’re calling for a boycott of the new show starring William Shatner, due out this fall. To learn more about the council’s reasons, check out this huffpo article about the boycott.

Coincidentally, these concerned parents all own dogs that have figured out the spelling of “W-A-L-K” means the same as the word walk. And of course they always bring baggies to pick up the dog’s ‘$#!’.
