Floridian Grandparent Bradley Merten had no idea he was about to find a profanity-spewing toy when he bought his grandchild a McDonald’s Happy Meal earlier this week.

The caveman-inspired Minion toy is being used to promote the latest Despicable Me franchise movie, Minions. In the children’s flick, the language the Minions use to communicate is “Minionese,” not English. Still, this McDonald’s toy seems to spit out an oddly familiar phrase. The toy can be heard repeatedly saying “what the f*ck”—leaving us all wondering the same thing.

Listen for yourself:


Now McDonald’s has come forward with a statement saying the toy does not, in fact, have a potty mouth:

“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 is purely coincidental.”

While it’s obvious that the fast-food chain had no intention of creating a toy that repeatedly drops the f-bomb in front of children, the mistake is something that should have been caught early on in the toy-making process.

Then again, many people really aren’t that offended.
