Need help, is this a venial or mortal sin.

So the other day I saw a news report about the recent riots in America. While watching it I uttered " g-----mn it, this is bad", the bad word was totally unplanned and I wasn’t trying to offend God in anyway. Witch left me the question, did I just comment a venial or mortal sin? I did not say it in an angry way, and did not plan to have said that. I looked at the rules for something to be a mortal sin and it said that you must have full knowledge of what you were doing. Again I had no intent on offending God, but I need some help on what I have done.

It’s probably venial because it seems you lacked sufficient intent.

But nobody here is qualified (or capable) of telling you for sure.
