Tanner, who is a Pole, claims the Polish song had profanity and talked about cocaine use, drug addiction, sadness and suicide. Tanner, who paid about $ 26 for the dancing cactus on the Walmart website, told CTV News Toronto, “I just don’t want anyone to believe this is a wonderful product and go online and do the same until Christmas . “She added,” This toy uses harsh language and talks about cocaine use that I didn’t order for my granddaughter. ” “Because I’m Pole, I was amazed when I started listening to music and hearing the lyrics.”
It turns out that the production company used a piece of Polish rap music without understanding the words. The music is a rap from a Polish singer named Cypis, according to CTV News. He raps about five grams of cocaine, suicide, and sadness, along with loads of swear words. Meanwhile, the rapper in question appears to be suing the Chinese toy store for using their music without permission.
Walmart told CTV News that the article would be removed if the company investigated the allegation. “These products are offered for sale on our Marketplace website by a third party. While we investigate this allegation further, we are removing the goods, ”a Walmart spokeswoman told CTV News Toronto.
