Arsenal’s FA Cup victory parade excited the Daily Mail  after Jack Wilshere stood on the gantry and swore. The Mail says Wilshere “heaped more embarrassment on Arsenal”.

The paper  adds:

Young children, along with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, were present at the celebrations as Wilshere chanted: ‘What do we think of Tottenham?’ before adding: ‘And what do we think of s***?

Having laughably bracketed Wenger, 65, and toddlers in a group who must be protected from such words, we wonder when Mail readers and writers became so sensitive?



Previously the Mail has reported:

* Swearing is a harmless emotional release which could make you feel stronger, researchers have claimed though only in moderation.

* Oh S**T! Children really DO pick up swear words like ‘vacuum cleaners’ when they overhear them

* Toddler becomes internet sensation after video of her swearing while doing the ice bucket challenge goes viral. Scarlett-Rose Davis, 3, begged grandparents to let her take part in craze. Video captures moment she blurts out ‘f***ing hell’ after challenge

The Mail shared the video with its readers. And then one of its writers opined:

* More than 200,000 people have now watched the 23-second clip of the girl being drenched with cold water and yelling: ‘F***ing hell!’ Never mind the mentality that thinks drenching small children with ice-cold water is entertaining and worth sharing with strangers online — it’s the child’s unabashed foul language that truly jolts.

A search for ‘sh*t’ on the Mail Online coughs up lots and lots of examples. (We’ve edited the swearing):
