WTF! Minions get folks in a froth
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.
