“It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity,” Bradley Merten, one of the concerned grandparents that bought the toy from McDonald’s, told WFTV. “I can’t believe it’s coming out of a toy.”

McDonald’s refutes the grandparents’ claim that the Minion is cursing. Instead, the company said that it’s speaking “Minionese” and that the toy in question was saying “para la bukay,” NBC12 notes.
