Tom Hanks detonated an F-bomb on “Good Morning, America.”

He clapped his hand over his mouth and apologized all over the place, as did interviewer Elizabeth Vargas.

The actor subsequently tweeted: “For GMA, spesh kowtow for Lizzie V for WHAT DID I JUST SAY??? Oops! In character! Sorry! Hanx”

The comment had watchdogs doing what they do best: barking.

The Parents Television Council was quick to speak up, as the Los Angeles Times reported, saying ABC had “allowed the harshest profanity to be broadcast into every living room and breakfast table in the country.”

Shame on Tom Hanks? Then, shame on the Dalai Lama.

According to Newser, the world's foremost Buddhist leader, seemed to say -- in front of thousands of students at Brown University on Wednesday -- that those who didn’t like his message could “… it.”

Later, the Dalai Lama’s personal translator reportedly said it wasn’t the F-bomb that was heard but “forget it.”

It appears though, that wasn’t the first time the Dalai Lama may have gotten his "F" words mixed up.

If you can stand some profanity, here is video of the Dalai Lama appearing to say a word that, now,  may bring to mind Tom Hanks.
