You can see a statement from Amazon below, which reveals why this might be happening and what they are doing to fix it.
“In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase ‘Alexa, laugh’”
“We are changing that phrase to be ‘Alexa, can you laugh?’ which is less likely to have false positives, and we are disabling the short utterance ‘Alexa, laugh’”, the company added. “We are also changing Alexa’s response from simply laughter to ‘Sure, I can laugh’ followed by laughter.”
