This Dad Realized His Son Inherited His Potty Mouth in Viral NSFW Video

Like father, like son.

James LaPorta/Twitter

One dad learned the hard way that kids are always listening to their parents. In a video posted to Twitter, James LaPorta recorded his two-year-old son repeatedly dropping the F-bomb.

“As a former U.S. Marine, now a father, there is perhaps one word I should try to cut out of my vernacular around my soon to be 2-year-old,” LaPorta tweeted on September 27, 2017.

The clip shows the Florida dad sitting in a parked car and looking shocked while son Joel is in the backseat and can be heard yelling “fuck” in a variety of tones and inflections.

In the comments, LaPorta admits, “I have been trying really hard to be mindful, but sometimes it’s the best word for multiple situations.” He added that “the struggle is real sometimes” and that “this is how that ‘once a Marine, always’ slogan backfires.”

    I look for tips and tricks because I could use the help.
    I gravitate toward "dad humor" because I need a break.
    I seek out content created by folks who get what I'm going through.
    I search for content by experts and for data.

With almost 400,000 views and 13,000 likes, the post has a lot of Twitter users laughing. “I’m sorry but… FUCK this is funny!” wrote one viewer. Others shared their own alternative curse words for LaPorta to try out, including “fudge” and “buckets.”

When one person asked if the boy was upset or just repeating his favorite word, LaPorta responded, “He could neither confirm nor deny his intent.”

And to the woman who reminded the dad that “[kids] do watch everything you do and they mimic everything you say,” he assured her, “If I didn’t know it before, I do now.”
