Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee who, until recently, hosted a program on Fox News, said he experienced culture shock when dealing with "trashy" women during his time at the network.

According to Politico, the likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate said he was taken aback by women swearing in a professional setting.

"In the South, or in the Midwest, there in Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the F-bomb or use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting," Huckabee told host Jan Mickelson in a Friday appearance on Des Moines' "Mickelson in the Morning" radio show.

"In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women," he said.

"My gosh, this is worse than locker-room talk," Huckabee added. "As we would say in the South, that's just trashy."

Huckabee quit his Fox News show earlier this month saying he was seriously exploring a bid for the White House.

It is the second time in a month that he stirred cultural controversy. In his recently released book, "God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy", Huckabee claimed that rap artist Jay-Z has been "exploiting his wife [Beyonce] as a sex object."

He also criticized the Obamas for allowing their children to be exposed to the singer.
 
Huckabee was one of a long list of possible contenders who attended the Freedom Summit in Iowa this weekend, the unofficial kick-off of the 2016 presidential campaign.

On Sunday, he told NBC's "Meet the Press" that it is "pretty evident" he's running for president.
