Parents Boycotting Peter Rabbit

People are boycotting the new “Peter Rabbit” movie over a character’s severe blackberry allergy!

We are yet to watch the film, but apparently in one scene the rabbits throw blackberries at a character who is allergic to them. The character then goes into anaphylactic shock and even needs to be injected with an EpiPen.

On Twitter right now the hashtag #BoycottPeterRabbit has started, calling the scene irresponsible and enraging.

Sony Pictures has apologized since the reviews have come out, and said that “food allergies are a serious issue” and the film “should not have made light” of a character being allergic to blackberries “even in a cartoonish, slapstick way.”

“Peter Rabbit” grossed more than $25 million on opening weekend.
