‘Cursing’ toy


A Florida family claims that a minion toy they received at McDonald’s says “What the f*ck.” Others say they hear it saying, “Well I’ll be damned.” Parent:

It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity. I can’t believe it’s coming out of a toy.

McDonald’s says the Minion toy actually says “para la bukay,” “hahaha” and “eh eh.” Spokesperson

The allegation that this toy is saying anything offensive or profane is not true.

Coffin, who invented the Minionese language:

I’m not saying what people with a twisted mind seem to be hearing. If it was my intent to say inappropriate stuff, you’d hear it, I promise you. But I’d be pretty stupid doing it in a movie for all audiences including kids. I don’t think myself as being very intelligent, but I’m certainly not that dumb.

Is this Mcdonald's Minion toy swearing?
