If he usually does not talk like that I would let it go.  It probably was auto correct.

     Ignore it, get your commission check. 

    If that is his manner of speaking to a lady (which is becoming regrettably common in our time), then cease contact with him once the deal is over.

If it was an auto-correct, it may have been gone before your client realized what it said.  That has happened to me, but now I make sure everything is right before I send it.  I think the auto-correct goes out of its way to use inappropriate words, just to embarrass us.  If your client realized it, he or she is probably hoping you don't bring it up, so I would just let it pass and let your client wonder if you saw it.

If it was the only time he did that and it was out of character for him, just ignore it and complete the transaction. If the context was aimed at you or abusive, that is not acceptable.

Set the standards that show the type of business you do. It is your choice to stay above or enter into. Remain silent on what may have been accidental and infrequent in occurrence is the best policy.

Some have such vulgar language, specific to some areas of NYC, that it is simply their expression. Public education often leads to a vocabulary of much shorter words and combine that with professional sports (and increasingly amateur sports) and you have a ...mess.

If it were me, I would ask them if they meant to say that - it may be they didn't notice and need to fix their broken "app".
