E! rapped for Kardashians' language

Sherna Noah

US reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians breached broadcasting rules on offensive language, regulator Ofcom has ruled.

The offending episode of the series about the celebrity family, broadcast at noon in September on E!, featured arguments between several members of the family and their partners.

Ofcom found that, on six occasions, the word f*** or a derivative was broadcast, breaching rules stating that the "most offensive language must not be broadcast before the watershed".

E! is owned and operated by E Entertainment UK Ltd.

The watchdog said: "Ofcom noted two past findings relating to the pre-watershed broadcast of the most offensive language on the licensee's channels...

"Ofcom is putting E Entertainment on notice that it is particularly concerned about the licensee's compliance procedures and will proceed to consider further regulatory action should any similar incidents occur."
