Hi @Farcastric,


As you know, Sims speak a made up language: Simlish. Everything they say is using that language, and even the music in the game is recorded in Simlish (which is usually a really fun experience for the singers!). Here an interesting video where you can see some Simlish Behind the Scenes Wink


From what you are telling us, it seems you heard a combination of sounds which may be similar to some other word in English. This would explain what happened, but in any case, I can assure you Sims are not racists and they don't have such a word in their vocabulary Standard smile


Hope you enjoy the video and helps you discover this amazing language!
