WTF! Minions get folks in a froth

CityPress - - News - – Reuters

McDon­ald’s is stand­ing by its latest Happy Meal toy, deny­ing its Minions are the foul-mouthed play­things some of its fast food cus­tomers say they are.

In videos posted online, some cus­tomers said they heard swear­ing when they ac­ti­vated the toy’s voice. Some said they heard the phrase “What the f**k”.

One cus­tomer said: “To me, it sure doesn’t sound like any­thing a kid should be hear­ing.”

The res­tau­rant chain this month in­tro­duced a line of toys inspired by the an­i­mated film Minions, a pre­quel to the De­spi­ca­ble Me movies, which fea­ture the small, yel­low, gib­ber­ishtalk­ing char­ac­ters.

In a state­ment, McDon­ald’s de­nied the toys used bad lan­guage, and a com­pany spokesper­son said there was no plan to pull the toys from dis­tri­bu­tion.
