Yesterday, a McDonald's location in Longwood, Florida came under fire after a local man discovered what was allegedly a profanity-spewing Minion toy in his granddaughter's Happy Meal.
In an interview with Orlando's Channel 9 news, scandalized customer Bradley Merten described his trip to McDonald's prior to visiting his 4-year-old granddaughter, where he ordered the Happy Meal that came with a toy offering more 'surprise' than he originally bargained for.
"It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity. I can't believe it's coming out of a toy."
According to Merten, the Minion toy sounds like it's saying "What the f---?!" But to me, well, it just sounds like typical Minion gibberish.
You can decide for yourself in the video above, created by Merten with the intent to get the 'mouthy Minion' nationally recalled.
This case blew up so fast that even McDonald's had to step in and release an official statement on behalf of the company:
"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."
For the parents out there still worried about purchasing a cursing Minion toy, don't worry. McDonald's assures the problem can easily be resolved by washing their mouths out with soap.
