A grandma in Ontario, Canada, bought what she thought was an educational toy for her 15-month-old granddaughter, and was shocked when the dancing cactus started swearing and singing about doing cocaine.
The cactus was sold on Walmart’s website as an educational toy for about $26, and sings songs in English, Spanish, and Polish. The grandmother, Ania Tanner, who is Polish, said she was shocked to hear the cactus singing about doing cocaine, drug abuse, suicide, depression, and used profanities in the Polish song.
The song used is by Polish rapper Cypis, who is reportedly unaware his song was used by the Chinese manufacturer of the children’s toy. Cypis has taken legal action against the company for using his song without permission.
A Walmart spokesperson said, “These items are sold by a third-party seller on our marketplace website. We are removing the items while we look into this complaint further.”
