A toddler who completed the Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday surprised onlookers when she had a few choice words to say about her chilling experience. According to The Kansas City Star on Wednesday, a 2-year-old girl's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video went viral because of what she says after the pan of water was dumped on her head. Visibly startled by the ice water, she finishes her Ice Bucket Challenge video with a clearly spoken expletive.

The unnamed British toddler begins her Ice Bucket Challenge with a few mumbled words that are difficult to make out, except for the word "challenge." The short proof video posted to Uproxx ends with the little pigtailed girl completely shocked by what happens next. Viewers wonder if she really knew what kind of a challenge she was volunteering for or if she even knew what the word challenge meant.

After someone suddenly pours a pan of water over the little girl's head, she jumps up out of her folding chair, completely surprised, and lets loose with a very coherent double curse word. Reports are saying that more than likely the water was lukewarm instead of ice cold, and it was gently poured over the toddler's head instead of dumped. However, some viewers still claim that having a young child take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge borders on child abuse, even if it is for charity.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, more commonly known only as the Ice Bucket Challenge, promotes awareness of ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease. Participants are nominated to have ice water poured over their heads while being filmed for proof. They then nominate others to take part in the challenge, and donations are encouraged for ALS research.

Although, another similar "Cold Water Challenge" became popular in mid-2013 to raise money for cancer research, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge first went viral on social media in July 2014. Participants in the U.S. donate money to the ALS Association and participants in the U.K. donate to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
