Pope Francis' accidental F' bomb

On Sunday during the Vatican Sunday blessing in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis dropped an F' bomb according to an article in the New York Daily News.

The pontiff was speaking from a window when he accidentally muddled the Italian word "caso" — which means "case" — with "cazzo" — which can translate to "f--k" or sometimes "s--t."

"If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this f--k," he said, before pausing.

The Pope was soon forgiven for the indiscretion receiving tweets of understanding from his supporters.

He wanted to say, 'in this case' — it's a simple mistake made by a foreigner reading Italian, nothing more," one viewer wrote.

Another added: "Great Pope Francis, I love you!"

Pope Francis is not the first to utter the F Bomb in front of a crowd. Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper both dropped f-bombs onstage at the 19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards in Los Angeles this past January.
