Actor Taye Diggs upset his mother on TV in America on Wednesday night (02Dec09) after using foul language to describe his feelings about people who can't accept his mixed-race marriage to actress Idina Menzel.
The Rent star was quizzed about the hatemail his white wife received after marrying him during an appearance on chat show Lopez Tonight - and he took his comments to the extreme.
He explained, "In the beginning, it rubbed some people the wrong way but, in this day and age, you've just got to say, 'F**k it!'"
Immediately realising he'd sworn on live TV, an embarrassed Diggs said, "My bad. My Bad. My mom's gonna kill me."
