The Dalai Lama didn't curse at a Brown University event, the college swears — even if the closed captioning said differently.

A closing comment Wednesday by the Dalai Lama was mistaken for a profanity by the person transcribing his remarks for closed captioning at a speech on peace.

The exiled Tibetan leader urged listeners to share his thoughts with others if they found them interesting. If not, he said, they could "forget."

The closed captioning on a large screen at the Rhode Island Convention Center transcribed the remark as an expletive.
I assume it was "f*ck it" because it sounds similar, and the result is hilarious considering it was the Dalai Lama...
