In an incident on March 10 2014, 2-year old Kiannah Cox was watching a Peppa Pig DVD, and in the episode titled "Madame Gazelle's Leaving Party", one scene shows the grown-ups packing boxes of plates and cups, while thinking about whom else to invite to the party. Daddy Pig mentions a pop group that Madame Gazelle was once in; in reply, Mr. Rabbit is thought to be saying this: "That's right, she played guitar with the fucking gazelles." After hearing that, Kiannah shocked her mother, Natalie Cox, by repeating the phrase. According to Natalie, upon asking her 11-year-old son where Kiannah had heard the phrase, he pointed to the DVD. At that point, Natalie took the kids out of the room and put the DVD in the machine; once she heard the phrase, she was quite concerned about how that got past the editors. She then sent a complaint e-mail to Astley Baker Davies, who later replied to her saying that they would never put foul language in any episode and that there was a misunderstanding in that scene. According to the producer, Neville Baker, the line in that scene was actually as follows: "That's right, she played guitar, with the Rocking Gazelles."
