Parent: Toy appears to be saying 'rape me'

SANDY, Utah, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A Utah mother said she wants the Catch-Me-Kitty toy pulled from stores because it sounds like it is saying "rape me."

Kayla McCune of Sandy said she bought the toy for her young daughter about two months ago and soon found the toy's recorded phrase, which is supposed to be "chase me, race me, you'll have fun," sounded more like "chase me, rape me," KSTU-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Monday.

"I opened it and let my daughter play with it and about two times after we put it on, I noticed it was saying, 'Chase me, rape me,'" she said. "I had to turn it off and back on a couple times for it to register, that a kid toy was actually saying that."

KSTU-TV said it found many comments online from parents with similar problems with the Catch-Me-Kitty, which is manufactured by VTech.

"I would like this to be pulled off the shelves so little kids aren't singing this song thinking it's funny," she said.

McCune said the company refused to listen to her complaints.

KSTU-TV said it has emailed VTech for a comment, but has yet to receive a reply.
