It's no secret Mayor Emanuel is known for his dirty mouth. President Obama zinged him in 2009 when he said "for Rahm every day is a swearing-in ceremony." Even a fake news release on April Fool's Day from the mayor's office said that the only F-word Emanuel now uses is FOIA, which stands for Freedom of Information Act.

Here's a look at five others who got busted for cursing on the job.

President Obama told the "Today" show in 2010 that he visited the Gulf Coast so he knows "whose ass to kick" for the BP oil spill. Obama called Kanye West a "jackass" in the May issue of The Atlantic. He criticized West off the record for interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs but it was tweeted in 2009 by a reporter.

Christian Bale went on an F-bomb dropping tirade in 2008 against a crew member who walked on the set of "Terminator Salvation" while he was filming a scene. The audio was released by TMZ.

Jay Cutler was seen and heard on TV during the Bears game against the Vikings in 2011 with a message directed at offensive coordinator Mike Martz saying "F— him." Cutler told the Tribune he didn't regret what he said.

Meryl Streep had her "oh s—" moment when she realized she forgot her glasses and couldn't read her acceptance speech onstage at the Golden Globes in January. NBC bleeped it out. Afterward, she couldn't believe she cursed.

Reese Witherspoon shed her good girl image when she jokingly called her "Water for Elephants" co-star Robert Pattinson a "motherf—er" after accepting a MTV award in 2011.
