The dancing cactus toy, which sings in three different languages, stunned a Polish-speaking customer with its R-rated lyrics, prompting Walmart Canada to remove it from its website.

According to a report that got our attention, Walmart has withdrawn a child's toy that curses and sings in Polish about smoking cocaine. The toy sings songs in three languages: English, Spanish, and Polish. The issue came into notice after the toy was purchased by Ania Tanner of Ontario, Canada, for her granddaughter, according to CTV News.

Tanner, who is Polish, claims that the Polish song had profanities and discussed cocaine usage, drug addiction, sadness, and suicide. Tanner, who paid roughly $26 for the dancing cactus on Walmart's website, told CTV News Toronto, "I simply don't want somebody to believe this is a wonderful product before Christmas and go online and have the same thing happen." She added, "This toy utilises harsh language and talks about cocaine usage, which is not what I ordered for my granddaughter." "Because I am Polish, I was taken aback when I first started listening to the music and heard the lyrics."

It turns out that the manufacturing company used a piece of Polish rap music without understanding the words. The music is a rap by a Polish singer named Cypis, according to CTV News. He raps about "doing five grammes of cocaine," suicide, and sadness, along with a slew of swear words. Meanwhile, the rapper in question is apparently suing the Chinese toy business for utilizing his music without permission. 

Walmart told CTV News that the item would be removed as the company examines the allegation. "These products are for sale on our marketplace website by a third-party vendor. While we investigate this allegation further, we are removing the goods," a Walmart spokeswoman told CTV News Toronto. 

This singing cactus toy was also marketed in Europe through Amazon, which received complaints regarding the lyrics and was deemed improper for a children's toy by many.

One enraged Amazon reviewer wrote, "The fact that there are three songs should be noted CLEARLY in the description. One of them is crucial. One of them is Spanish. And the other is a Polish song about drugs." "Who the heck advertises a device for kids that plays cocaine songs?!?!?" another Amazon customer wondered.

"Doesn't anyone understand that all these appropriate present item needs are a little rebranding?" mic.com wonders. "Just title it 'Coke-craving Cactus Dancer,' and put it on our adult-only Christmas list."



 

 

Many users on social media posted videos and made hilarious remarks about the "dancing cactus toy”. One person tweeted, “Bought my daughter a dancing cactus toy…that appears to be singing and dancing to a polish song about cocaine addiction???”



 

 

Another user posted, “For years I’ve been searching for a cactus that would dance and sing in Polish about cocaine abuse … I finally find one, but before I can get to the store the Comstocks are yanking em the shelves!”
