Parents Claim McDonald's Happy Meal Minions Toy Says F-Word (Video)

| by Michael Allen

McDonald's recently released its new Happy Meal toys that talk.

The toys are based on the "Minions" movie currently in theaters, but some parents claim that one of the plastic creatures says, "What the f---?"

One parent even posted a YouTube video (below) to prove his claim.

Bradley Merten, a grandparent in Longwood, Florida, told WFTV, "It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity ... I can't believe it's coming out of a toy."

WFTV bleeped out the Minion's message while asking viewers to listen to what the toy said.

McDonald's told WFTV in a statement:

Minions speak "Minionese" which is a random combination of many languages and nonsense words and sounds. "Minionese" has no translation to, or meaning in any recognized language. Any perceived similarities to words used within the English language are purely coincidental.

However, parents in Columbus, Ohio, made the same claim to Fox 28.

"I heard what it said and I'm like, 'Whoa, hold on here,'" Taylor King said.

"I showed a couple other people and then, you know so that way It wasn't just me thinking, 'All well, you know, I'm misunderstanding it.' No, it clearly says what it says," King added.

"As soon as we heard it, her mom took it away. And I listened to it and that's when we found out that's what it was saying," Robert Frazier stated.

Fox 28 played the toy's garbled noise, which did not appear to resemble the English language.
