Walmart sells a cactus toy that dances after it becomes apparent that it raps about drugs

Grandmother in Ontario, Canada, was stunned after discovering a cactus toy that rapped, swore and spoke about cocaine … all in Polish.

Ania Tanner (the grandmother in question) bought an educational toy she believed was for her 15-month old granddaughter. She was shocked by the words.

The cactus, which sings melodies in English, Spanish, and Polish, was sold on Walmart’s website as an educational toy for around $26.

Tanner, who is Polish, claims the cactus used profanity to sing about drug abuse, suicide and depression.

“It just so happens that I am Polish and when I started to listen to the songs and I heard the words. I was in shock. I thought, what is this some kind of joke?”Tanner told CTV News Toronto.

Cypis is a Polish rapper, who apparently didn’t know that the Chinese manufacturer used his music.

“It’s about taking five grams of cocaine and being alone … It’s a very depressing song,”Tanner also added.

Amazon also offers this cactus toy in Europe.

In July 2021, other families had realised the issue with the lyrics and felt that it was inappropriate for a children’s toy.

He stated that he would sue the Chinese company for not giving him permission to use his song.

Tanner stated that she thinks Walmart shouldn’t be selling the toy for kids and is seeking a refund.

Walmart has since removed this toy from its website.

“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,”CTV News was informed by the company.

Tanner, who stated, “I just don’t want anybody before Christmas to think this is a great toy and go online and have the same thing happen, that happened to me.”
