Good Morning America got in trouble today. Tom Hanks dropped out the "f-word" on GMA Friday drawing complaints by the Parents Television Council.
Hanks appeared for an interview with Elizabeth Vargas to promote his upcoming film "Cloud Atlas," when he was asked to act as one of the five different characters he portrays in the new movie.

Hanks then acted and dropped the "f-word."
Immediately he noticed what he just said and embarassed covered his mouth with his hand as Vargas looked terrified and apologized.
"I have never done that before, I would apologize to the kids in America that are watching this right now and the next time I'm on the show there would be a 7 second delay," Hanks said.
In a statement, the network also issued an apology.
"This morning Tom Hanks accidentally used an expletive during a live interview on 'GMA' with Elizabeth Vargas. They both immediately apologized on air, and the show was corrected for the all subsequent feeds."
But according to Fox News, the Parents Television Council was not satisfied with the apology.
"This is just another in a long, sad string of similar instances where all of the major network morning shows have permitted this inappropriate and offensive content. These cannot and must not be dismissed as 'mistakes,' and it's time for the networks to step up, take responsibility for what they broadcast, and ensure that this never happens again," the organization said in a statement.
Hanks later tweeted about the incident on TV:
"For GMA, spesh kowtow for Lizzie V for WHAT DID I JUST SAY??? Oops! In character! Sorry! Hanx."
