Gasp! 'Modern Family' Toddler Drops F-Bomb!

USATODAY.COM - We'll all have to tune in to Modern Family tonight. Why? To hear little Lily drop an f-bomb!

Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, 3, won't actually utter the offensive f-word. It will just appear as though she does in the episode titled "Little Bo Bleep," as she shocks parents Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) with her first cuss word.

The dads, who are preparing Lily to serve as flower girl in a wedding, find themselves facing a new parenting challenge - one many parents will be able to relate to.

During the taping, Anderson-Emmons was not asked to say a bad word, but instead said "fudge," reports AP. But the image of her saying f$*&# has already riled some people, including McKay Hatch, 18, a college student who founded the No Cussing Club in 2007.

He wants to "stop this from happening," Hatch told AP Tuesday. "If we don't, at least ABC knows that people all over the world don't want to have a 2-year-old saying the f-bomb on TV."

He's asking his club's members, whom he said number 35,000 in the United States and about three dozen other countries, to complain to ABC.

The Parents Television Council also objects. "It is certainly in poor taste," Melissa Henson told FOX411.

The network has not commented, but Steven Levitan, co-creator of the show, told the Television Critics Association last week that he's "proud and excited" about the obscenity plotline that ABC was persuaded to allow.
