Minion toys from the new release, Minions have become a sensation worldwide. It is not just the movie from the Despicable Me franchise which is making news, but also the yellow blobs and their blabbering Minionese language has made headlines.
Kids are excited to collect minion toys which are available at the McDonald's new Happy Meal treat for movie promotions. However, one of the toys is uttering a profane word which has angered parents.
These little yellow creatures represent titular characters from the prequel of Universal Studios' Despicable Me franchise.
One of the toys when hit on the hard surface is uttering the 3 words which includes 'F.' When you hit on the toy, it utters roughly, 'What the f**k.'
Irked parents from Alabama, Ohio, and Florida are insisting that one of the words is profane.
An Ohio dad told Fox28, "I heard what it said and I'm like, ‘Whoa, hang on here!"
"(My kids) are old enough now where they're going to mock anything they hear from a toy," King told. "It's coming from a toy. They're going to assume it's okay to say that."
A grandfather in Florida got a toy with the meal for his granddaughter and was left surprised with the words it uttered. "It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity," he told WFTV. "I can't believe it's coming out of a toy."
"Minions speak ‘Minionese,' which is a random combination of many languages and nonsense words and sounds," a spokesperson for McDonald's told Fox 28 Affiliate.
Minionese is a mix of different languages like Spanish, French, Italian, English to name a few.
