Sony Apologizes for ‘Peter Rabbit’ Movie’s Allergy Scene

Sam Rose has a son who loves Peter Rabbit, a character from a children’s book by Beatrix Potter, but she won’t take him to see “Peter Rabbit,” the new movie loosely based on it.

The issue? Her son has food allergies, and a scene in the film shows blackberries being used as a weapon. The backlash to the scene has already drawn an apology from the filmmakers.

“Peter Rabbit,” which came out last week, features live actors and computer-generated animals. A human character named Tom McGregor is allergic to blackberries. In a quest to gain access to his garden, rabbits pelt him with fruits and vegetables before using a slingshot to send a blackberry flying into his mouth.

It works.

Mr. McGregor struggles to inject himself with an EpiPen and then has anaphylaxis and collapses.

“I’m pretty sure Beatrix Potter will be turning in her grave about now,” Ms. Rose, who lives outside Guildford in Surrey, England, said in an interview on Facebook Messenger. “Allergies are often not taken seriously enough anyway. To have them trivialized on the big screen by such a popular character is immensely disappointing.”

Sign of the times.  Anything and everything  in entertainment is offensive to someone.  If it is aimed at, or involves children- doubly so.

This looks like the variety of people-looking-to-be-offended.

Maybe they are offended that a 6 dollar EpiPen costs a hundred times that.

If my son eats a peanut, he dies. 

I don't take offense to this cartoon, but I find it a bit inconsiderate.  And yeah, EpiPens ... I love paying for those fucking things.

I get it, but come the fuck on. It's a throw away scene in a movie about an anthropomorphic rabbit.

Like I said, I'm not offended by it, but if your kid was in my kid's boat, you'd likely find it a bit uncouth, as well. 

My wife and I had to battle with our school district just to make his classroom a "peanut-free zone" because other parents didn't want to be "inconvenienced" by not sending peanuts and peanut products to school as treats.  The ignorance when it comes to allergies, in particular peanut allergies, is disconcerting.

I want o see the scene where the rabbits start devouring rabbit fetus's in an attempt to discourage inter species breeding. Rabbits are well known fetus carnivours

I'm on the snowflake side of this one.  Evidently some rabbit is allergic to blackberries so they start throwing them at him thinking it's funny.  Kids don't get that it's dangerous so this was out of bounds.

If you're kids don't know any better then it's your job to teach them.

Because kids are stalwarts in the consequences of food allergies?

No, that's probably not the case. It's more likely that they just don't have experience with it. 

I've been called a "complainer" by a couple other parents and I don't have any way to make them understand what the consequences are.  I tell them that my son could die ... and they think I'm just being a drama queen. 

It's a challenge that never ends. 

Cartoons like this, while seemingly innocent to most people, do not help that cause.

Sure, that's part of it too, but lazy parenting plays a role in that part of it as well. IF their parents don't teach them the importance of it then it doesn't reverberate with them and they're likely to act the way they do.

My daughter is 3 and she already knows about kid's allergies. We've talked about it.

Unfortunately, not everyone is a very good parent. 

Waiting for some kid to give my kid a peanut on a "goof" is a very troubling thought.
