The new Happy Meal toy that could save McDonald’s has a potty mouth…or does it?
McDonald’s says the toys aren’t speaking in curse words, but in “Minionese,” “a random combination of many languages and nonsense words” a company representative explained via email:
“We’re aware of a very small number of customers who have been in touch regarding this toy, and we apologize for any confusion or offense to those who may have interpreted the sounds for anything other than jibberish.
“The allegation that this toy is saying any offensive phrase is not true. Any perceived similarities to actual English words are purely coincidental.”
