Why is it?

Why is it, when someone is trying to excuse the profanity they use, they refer it to having Tourette Syndrome....or having a case of Tourette Syndrome? This past Saturday night I caught a repeat of an episode of Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay.  It was for Amy's Baking Company. This was one episode where Chef Ramsay actually refused to complete the make over of the restaurant and help the owners. They re-visited the restaurant and a reporter went back to talk to Amy and her husband. This is a segment of the interview, so please watch and see how she mentions Tourette Syndrome. (here is a link to youtube just in case my video doesn't work..... 
This person wants to say that she had a severe case of Tourette Syndrome and this excuses why she uses profanity. I wish people would think before they talked. This is one reason why misinformation on Tourette Syndrome continues to spread.
