    That is not English. No native speaker with any education at all would use "forced" to mean "said" or "insisted".

    That's an incorrect use of the verb "to force."  It makes no sense.

    That means that the elephant is forcefully telling some other creature to get an Apple for him

    I have never in my life seen the word 'forced' used in place of 'said'.
