Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

I kind of don't understand why we are debating this. Yes, the word means both a cat and a woman's genitalia, but Bruno's comment was "you were too rough with your %*&%#". Does anyone really think he meant she was mistreating her pet in that context? And for the record, she wasn't actually dressed as a cat, with ears and tail, but was only wearing some kind of an animal print catsuit, right?
Karina is also foreign born and English is her second language and she knew exactly what he meant. Mrs. Slocome also knew as well or else she would not have been speaking of her uh hum kitty with the hope of a laugh, lol. I really love Mrs. S and AYBS but to be honest, could have lived without the P word from her, it even made our Mrs. S look a bit crude ; )
I'm being perfectly serious here. It wasn't funny. We shouldn't condone his behavior. ABC should review its policies and realize that their darling judges are only employees, after all, and as such, need to adhere to federal laws prohibiting sexual harassment in the workplace. I'm not going to comment on this anymore, but wanted to convey the seriousness of this type of behavior. C'mon folks, I realize it's entertainment, a TV show, but they have to draw the line and he needs to be reprimanded.
One of the things he said was that the pros had been encouraged to talk back to the judges - "it's entertaining for the audience", and now get this....Bruno had been encouraged to elaborate more on his comments (the implication again was that it was entertaining.)
The point I am making is that Bruno has gone way over the top, sometimes almost beserk, and this time crude and maybe even harrassing; however, if the inside info - given towards the beginning of the season - is to be believed, Bruno was prompted into a lot of all of that over the top flowery nonsense which did escalate this season.
Yes, they will have to get on to him, but this is could be a double edged sword here if they started him on this track.
They are a bit guilty here too - so do they fire him if they started him on this track?
Unless someone like you cares a lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
