His facial expressions exemplified his growing regret for having dropped the f-bomb in front of his toddler, as his son kept escalating the use of the word.
As one Twitter user noted, it looked like LaPorta was thinking the word each time his son used it.
‘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’, he posted on Twitter.
Some users have slammed LaPorta o nTwitter, saying: ‘Clearly you’re indulging it by recording it and uploading rather than teaching him that it’s not acceptable.’
LaPorta is now a freelance journalist based in south Florida.
