CBS 2 is reporting that the LA City Council is looking into ways to curb foul language at its meetings, prompted in part by a recent appearance by Michael Hunt who “repeatedly used a racial epithet while referring to several black council members.”
A recent article in LA Citybeat describes Hunt as an “embattled Venice boardwalk artist” who, along with friend Zuma Dogg are “self-styled ‘Beach Outlaws'”. Zuma Dogg also gained some notoriety recently for addressing the City Council, but no mention if this included offensive language.
Council members also want local television station L.A. CityView to look into bleeping and blurring audio and video from meetings so that they are suitable for family viewers.
Because nothing could kill an afternoon of family TV viewing more than a glimpse of Council President Garcetti having a wardrobe malfunction.
