NEWS: Some shocked McDonald’s customers who bought Happy Meals for their kids said one of the Minions toys appears to utter an obscene phrase.
Paul Butts, a Birmingham, Alabama, man who bought one of the meals for his daughter, posted a video to YouTube showing the talking Caveman Minion toy that came in the meal uttering its phrases, including one he believes to sound like the profane phrase, “What the f***?”
A video uploaded by Gizmodo appears to back up Butts’ account, showing another Caveman Minion uttering the same phrase.
Taylor King of Ohio said he had no doubts when he heard his 3-year-old son’s Minion toy talk.
“I heard what it said and I’m like, ‘whoa, hang on here,'” King told Columbus, Ohio, television station WTTE. “It clearly says what it says.”
McDonald’s said the toys speak in “Minionese,” a nonsense language that doesn’t include any English words. The company said any perceived words or phrases spouted by the toy are coincidental.
