So in myrtle beach South Carolina you can be fined 500$ or spend 30 days in jail for cussing.

In 2017 , 289 tickets were issued for profane language collecting over 22 grand .

I thought speech was protected in this country ? This is just ridiculous in America.

Why are people offended by a cuss word ? its just a god damm word.

Just saying that would get me fined or possibly land me in jail on misdemeanor charges in Myrtle Beach .

I am so tired of people in power doing everything they can to collect more $$$$ from us.

I dont even know how this law gets passed in America.


ou might want to watch your mouth if you plan on taking a trip to Myrtle Beach. In the City of Myrtle Beach, it is illegal to publicly use profanity. A violation of the ordinance could result in a fine or some time in jail. The rule is a part of the city’s disorderly conduct ordinance.

The UK is no different, using profanity in earshot of others is considered a public order offence and is punishable by fine.

30 days in jail is a little excessive, lol

I don't mind the occasional descriptive cuss words, but some seem to be unable to speak without a string of profanities attached. Ive noticed some younger folks especially drop the F bomb every other word. Loudly, in public and don't care who hears it. Fined or jailed though... that's way too Big Brother for me.

By making, uttering or directing toward another person any lewd, obscene or profane or libelous expletive or epithets or "fighting" words, which as a matter of common knowledge, when addressed to the ordinary citizen are inherently likely to provoke violent reactions, including but not limited to calls, threats and invitations to immediately engage in physical violence, fisticuffs, duel or personal combat


Sounds like you are aloud to curse as a matter of free speech. If you want to strole down the street cursing to your self like a loon you can do so. If you want to recite a poem that has a curse in it as a matter of political protest you can do so.

Sounds like what you cant do is curse at some ordinary person because they took your parking space.

The later being more assultish than free-speechish I think they are trying to stick a balance. Of course the fact that their law is written in very vague terms so they give then selves the flexibility to apply it on a case by case bases may be a problem.

Be funny if they had to make signs listing all the words that are punishable, in full, with no *s to replace letters.

It is typically tied to disorderly conduct and intoxication. The drunk in public fine usually carries the same title, public intoxication/swearing.

If you're chatting with your friends and sneak in a well placed F bomb that maybe heard a table over, I think you're find other than possibly upsetting other people.

Scream the F bomb across the street in a drunken stupor.... You're probably spending the night in the $1 motel.

Scratch it off the list because it's a gross party beach for young people.

Truth be told, you have to go out of your way to get in trouble there.

Bald Head Island, Hilton Head Island, the Outer Banks, and Charleston are all way nicer.

I actually like not swearing, around people or in public. I find using proper words, much more satisfying.

Unless I'm smurfing off my smurf, then yas can all get smurfed!

Ahem. Violent or offensive language Does violate the people around you their rights to not hear such useless language and to be happy in their person.

Also Saying a relgious themed cuss word is bigoted against God.
