A Florida family contacted WFTV after the Minion toy they got from a McDonald's happy meal sounded like it was speaking profanity.

The popular Minion character originated from the movie "Despicable Me" and a toy version that talks comes with McDonald's happy meals. 

But when grandparent Bradley Merten ordered a happy meal from a Longwood McDonald's, he was shocked to hear the Minion toy saying what he believes is profanity.

"It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity," Merten said. "I can't believe it's coming out of a toy."

Merten said the Minion toy sounds like it's saying, 'What the (expletive).' He was very concerned that his granddaughter could pick up on the phrase.

"(They should) check their toys before they hand them over," Merten said.

WFTV purchased a happy meal to see if another Minion toy said the same phrase, but it didn't.
