A new public service announcement for Break The Silence Against Domestic Violence asks viewers to consider which is more offensive, the F-word or domestic abuse.

A provocative new public service announcement asks viewers to consider which is more offensive: the “F-word” or domestic abuse.

And it does so by dropping as many F-bombs as possible.

The online PSA is part of a new “F*ck DV” campaign created on behalf of Break The Silence Against Domestic Violence, an anti-abuse charity based in San Diego, California.

All of the people in the video have suffered or witnessed some form of domestic abuse, including the group’s founder, Kristen Faith, who created the video concept.
