Offensive Language Costs You $$$$ In Brussels
Brussels, Belgium is trying to curb salty language from it’s citizens and make the city a better community for its residents.
Brussels Mayor Freddy Thieleman thinks any form of insult, be it racist or homophobic, offensive language or words used to sexually harass someone in public is unacceptable and is now punishable with fines anywhere from $95 to $315.
Brussels isn’t the only place looking to impose fines on people who cannot seem to keep their questionable comments to themselves. Recently, Middleborough, Massachusetts, started handing out fines of $20 to anyone caught using naughty language in public.
