Last night on the Fox News show Hannity, Bob Beckel was in an off-air argument with TEA Party advocate Jennifer Stefano and dropped one of those words that shall not be mentioned on the airwaves.

Beckel, a Fox News host and contributor, didn't know he was on the air. KFYO host Sean Hannity was in shock and exclaimed to Beckel, "What are you doing?"

Also in the video is KFYO host and guest panelist Neal Boortz, who didn't offer much support in the clip. On his personal Twitter account, Boortz said:

OK. Before I read all these Tweets -- For the record I LOVE Bob Beckel -- so you folks leave him the hell alone. More in a few ....

A few minutes later, Boortz tweeted:

OK. Look --- truth is the blond lady was on Beckel like a rabid shrew during the break. He reacted. I might have done the same thing... I'm truly concerned for Bob. He is genuinely sorry and shaken by this. He didn't say anything we all haven't said at least once...So I support @bobbeckel completely and absolutely -- and ask you to please do the same. Truly -- he's a great guy.

Beckel did later apologize on air during Hannity, but the incident was taken out of the 12 a.m. ET replay. Beckel was on his show The Five Tuesday without any incident.
