The New “Term of Endearment”, Modern Usage

I think I may have to say the S-word, sorry, to President Hoffman.
I found a use of the C-word in modern times, as a possible endearment.
At an AFI dinner honoring Meryl Streep Jack Nicholson got up to give a brief tribute to her.
Nicholson, said he had asked Kramer star Dustin Hoffman about working with Streep.
“Dustin said Meryl is a c–t,” Nicholson blurted before a shocked (even by Hollywood standards) audience.
On second thought Dustin Hoffman and Jack Nicholson are just A-holes. You are still on the hook madam.
