Michelle Obama Freaks Public Out as She Swears on New York Show

The former first lady was speaking at a book event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn when the swear word slipped out, sparking a tsunami of shock and delight across the 19,000 seater arena - and on social media.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama offered a candid assessment of the reality of trying to balance a marriage and a career and the idea of 'leaning in'.

After applying to Princeton her high school counsellor told her: "I don't think you're Princeton material".

Obama quickly caught herself even as the crowd burst into cheers and applause, "I thought we were at home, y'all", she said.

Obama realized her faux pas straight away, remarking: "I forgot where I was for a moment!".

"Tattoo it on my body!" one Twitter user wrote about Obama's words.

Even Sandberg herself acknowledged that "leaning in" didn't really benefit women in the years after her book became a best-seller, and after her husband passed away, she wrote that she had never realized just how hard it is to be a single mother, and how many institutions are created to work against their professional successes.

Obama is promoting her new book, Becoming, which sold two million copies in the United States and Canada in just 15 days.

Cell phone cameras were rolling as she realized what she'd said. The impressive list of moderators includes Oprah, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, former senior adviser to President Obama Valerie Jarrett, and more.

In 2017, Sandberg herself acknowledged that her book was not as effective in changing workplace culture and inequality as she had hoped it would be, stating: "We are stuck at less than 6 percent of the Fortune 500 CEO jobs and their equivalent in nearly every country in the world". "But I think it can happen sooner than we think".

Obama recalled her first few months in the White House and getting her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, adjusted to their new life.

But some people took offense to Obama's unintentional cursing, calling her "classless".

One person tweeted that while she "may not agree politically.as a woman who has given her all to being a wife, mother and "successful" professional I agree with Michelle Obama 100% on this".
