WILL Ferrell has landed in hot water after making an online video clip featuring a two-year-old girl swearing and demanding alcohol.

The Anchorman star made the short comedy sketch - posted on - with director and co-writer friend Adam McKay's daughter Pearl.

Ferrell plays a lay-about in the film while the sweet, innocent toddler plays a drunk, cursing landlady demanding her rent. Pearl says "b***h", "c**p" and "a**-h**e" and claims to be "buzzed" while clutching a bottle of beer.

The clip has infuriated some viewers, but McKay has leapt to the defence of the comic star. McKay told People magazine: "Fortunately she is in this great stage now where she repeats anything you say to her and then forgets it right away, which is key.

"She has not said the 'B-word' since we shot the thing. We invited a friend with a camera over and shot it in about 45 minutes.

"We shot several shorts but we liked this one the best. I am not sure that it is the funniest - it is just that you can't beat Will being cursed out by a two-year-old."

In an 'email interview', believed to have been written by McKay, Pearl said: "I two-years-old. But when I wear my Dora shirt I look one-and-a-half.

"I like to put my hands in the fountain. I watch Wonderpets. I like to buy old houses and flip them for a profit so I can buy boxes of Gallo wine.

"Will Ferrell no pay rent. I want my money. That's why I mad." McKay - who has two daughters with his wife of 11 years, actress Shira Piven, sister of Entourage' star Jeremy Piven - set up for his friends to showcase comedy sketches.

He directed and co-wrote Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby with Ferrell.(SOURCE ONTD) VIEW IT HERE
