Won’t somebody think of the Rabbits: “Your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor” – The Tale of Peter Rabbit
Peter Rabbit film accused of ‘food bullying’ as rabbits pelt allergic man with blackberries
A new Peter Rabbit film starring James Cordon is at the centre of a “food bullying” row over a scene in which a gang of rabbits pelt blackberries at a man they know is allergic to them.
Several groups representing allergy sufferers have called for a boycott of the film, warning that it is “grossly offensive” and makes light of a potentially fatal condition.
Parents of children with food allergies have also expressed disgust at the scene and the message it send to young viewers.
