bleep

sound symbolism Noun
a bleep is something that is used to replace a profane word. May times in TV shows they replace the sound of the word used with a bleep sound. This has been generalized to daily life where the bleep word is used in place of a bad word especially in front of children.
 
This situation is so bleeped up.
Etymology : Derived from the sound used to replace the profane word. Used on many channels that want to filter out bad language. The word is now used to symbolize a curse without actually saying the curse.
