    A family in Tennessee believes a toy they got in a McDonald’s Happy Meal is cursing at them.

    The family believes the minion is saying, “Well, I’ll be damned.” The father got the toy for his three year old daughter and was shocked. A family in Florida has also reported that they got a toy minion that used profanity and said something worse.

    McDonald’s has released a statement saying, “Minions speak ‘Minionese’ which is a random combination of many languages and nonsense words and sounds. We apologize for any confusion or offense to customers who may have interpreted the sounds for anything other than gibberish. Any perceived similarities to actual English words are purely coincidental.”

    The family in Tennesee says they’re not convinced. They will checking every toy before they give it to their daughter.
