Mother Thinks Hannah Montana Doll Says The F-Word

A mother from Florida, USA, is complaining that her daughter's Hannah Montana sings the F-word.

Brandy Westberry (I said it was the USA, didn't I?) says the lyric, which is supposed to be "pumpkin pie", is clearly obscene.

Apparently she heard her three-year-old daughter singing a rude word and asked her where she had heard it.

The little girl blamed the doll. I'm not so sure.

Even if that's what the toy is saying, it occurs to me that surely the kid must have heard the word somewhere else to know that it IS a word?

Have a listen for yourself on this film clip and see what you think.

This kind of thing has been a problem before. Earlier this year, McDonald's had to pull a Kidz Bop CD from a Happy Meal giveaway after complaints it featured a rude word.

The CD had a version of Gavin De Graw's "I Don't Want To Be" which parents said included the F-word.

Anyway, Brandy has now removed the doll's batteries. Personally I'd have been tempted to do that even if I didn't think she was singing a rude word.

But then I hope I never have to buy my daughter a Hannah Montana doll in the first place...

What do you think? Does this doll sound obscene to you or is the mother over-reacting?
