A Happy Meal at a Florida McDonald's has left a family very unhappy.

The family claimed the talking toy inside of the meal is unsuitable for children.

Small children around the country are in love with Minions.

When the Merten family stopped by the Longwood McDonald's to get their 4-year-old granddaughter a Happy Meal, they thought the only surprise would be which Minion was inside.

Turned out the real shocker was the message the toy Minion said.

“It turned out to be a toy that decided to talk profanity,” said Bradley Merten.

He said he is convinced the little toy is saying “What the ‘F’.”

The Minion in question is Caveman Minion.

"I can't believe it's coming out of a toy,” Merten said.

After two days of investigating, it was unclear exactly what the Minion was saying.

McDonald's said in a statement “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 are purely coincidental."
