Katie Couric: I'm Not Gonna Castrate Miley Cyrus


The former 'Today' host has an interesting choice of word when defending her point in a debate about whether or not celebrities with young fan base should be considered role models.

Katie Couric made an interesting slip-up when co-hosting "The View" on Wednesday, August 3. The former "Today" host put the word "castrate" and Miley Cyrus in one sentence during a passionate debate over whether or not celebrities with young fan base should be considered "role models".

The debate started when Katie and the ladies of the ABC morning show weighed in on recent photos of Miley smoking cigarettes. Having young children herself, the 54-year-old stated that she understands the concern of parents about how children's role models influence their behaviors.

It led host Whoopi Goldberg to give a rebuttal on the issue. The 55-year-old, who had worked on "Sesame Street", said that her being a smoker herself doesn't make her a bad role model for children. She then pointed out that parents should refocus their concern instead to their own influence on their children.

In return, Katie tried to explain her point by saying, "I'm not going to castrate [Miley] because she's smoking." Her comment was quick to be picked up by host Joy Behar, who joked as quoted by E! Online, "Miley has a penis?!" Another host Barbara Walters chimed in and said, "After this I'm gonna talk to you about sex..."
