Cape Town - Gareth Cliff is letting the Twittersphere know how he feels about the word "Fuck", reports IOL.

The 5FM jock tweeted early on Tuesday morning that executive producer Thabo Modisane had been suspended for a week because the expletive was audible in a soundbite played during Cliff's breakfast show.

IOL reports that Cliff contextualised the tweet on air, explaining that Modisane had let the F-word be audible in a clip and his suspension was due to one listener complaint.

Cliff's tweets read as follows:
