Apparently Peter the fictional cartoon rabbit throws blackberries at his Nemesis who is allergic to blackberries. The twitterverse is all aghast at this violent -I'm not kidding violent -portrayal of allergy bullying.

Parents are being warned, apologies are being demanded, changes in production called for, Tibetan monks lighting themselves on fire, children openly weeping, mothers gnashing their teeth and screaming in Outrage,


...for Peter fricking Rabbit.

Oh, For Fock Sake.

Just a matter of time before Cool Hand Luke is boycotted for its violent portrayal of the violent canabalistic abortion of chicken's fetuses.

So odd that Wiff posts stuff like this then behaves like the same whiny bitches in the post when it comes to any and all matters related to Trump.

Trumps a friggin idiot. He's had two high-level cabinet members say that already. Not to mention what virtually everyone else already knows. He's even too stupid to have an attention span long enough to read a 4-page memo with pictures and colors and everything.

People who protest an animated rabbit are freaking idiots too.

Consistency. It's what's for breakfast.

The fact that it's got that no-talent hack James Corden in it is reason enough.

I will agree this is really dumb on the surface.

BUT with how prevelent nut allergies are these days and the severity of these allergies, it is probably a bad idea to show little kids something like this.

The 'Peter Rabbit' team is now apologizing...

https://wtop.com/mov...t-of-allergies/

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Peter Rabbit” filmmakers and the studio behind it are apologizing for insensitively depicting a character’s allergy in the film that has prompted backlash online.

Sony Pictures says Sunday in a joint statement with the filmmakers that “food allergies and 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.”

In “Peter Rabbit” which was released this weekend, the character of Mr. McGregor is allergic to blackberries. The rabbits fling the fruit at him in a scene and he is forced to use an EpiPen.

The charity group Kids with Food Allergies posted a warning about the scene on its Facebook page Friday prompting some on Twitter to start using the hashtag #boycottpeterrabbit. The group said that allergy jokes are harmful to their community and that making light of the condition “encourages the public not to take the risk of allergic reactions seriously.”

Kenneth Mendez, the president and CEO of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, wrote an open letter to the studio Saturday asking for the opportunity to educate the company and the film’s cast on the realities of food allergies and urged the studio to “examine your portrayal of bullying in your films geared toward a young audience.”

The studio and filmmakers say that they, “Sincerely regret not being more aware and sensitive to this issue, and we truly apologize.”

I first heard of it this weekend as a former client of mine posted to FB that she had taken her son to see the movie and was shocked at the scene as her son has some serious allergies and was afraid the scene would affect him to not taking his issue serious enough. :dunno:

I mean I get it... If you have a kid who has a nut allergy that can be life threatening, I wouldnt want a movie that small kids see showing the "hero" exploiting somebody's allergy. 4 5 6 7 years olds dont understand what could possibly happen if they decide they dont like johnny and force him to eat peanutbutter because they hear he is allergic

I blame the whole thing on women's liberation. You know why we didn't have all these stupid allergies when I was a kid? Because women did what they were supposed to do, what they were made to do, breastfeed. When you breastfeed you get not only nutrients, you get all of your mom's antibodies and tolerances.

Now these lazy bitches don't want to be inconvenienced. They want to start drinking margaritas right there in the ###### delivery room. They don't want to have to pump milk or do any of the things that mothers are supposed to do. God Only distinguishes Women two ways through their vag and their boobs.

So now our little snowflake children are drinking ship that is pasteurized and homogenized and sterilized and purified and then big ###### shock that their systems can't handle basic day-to-day proteins that existed for 1000000 years.

Biitches. Always the problem.

I have a 10 year old daughter who was breast fed and who has allergies to peanuts and tree nuts.  I don't think that's it.  It's no laughing matter when a little kid can go anaphylactic because of exposure to a substance that's innocuous to most of the rest of us.  It's not a joke and shouldn't be treated as a joke.  It's also not a question of being a snowflake.  It's simply a question of the body's response or overreaction to an allergan that the person has no control over whatsoever.

When the peanut allergy crazy hit Doctors told parents to avoid Peanut Butter for small children. Years later they found that this was increasing the problem.




For years, parents were told that babies and peanut butter just don't mix. In fact, it was common practice to hold off introducing any nuts, including peanut butter, until kids were 3 years old. Research on the timing of introducing peanuts has had conflicting results. However, a large study in Israel, where peanuts are often introduced when babies are less than 4 months old, found that early introduction of peanut protein actually decreases the risk of developing a peanut allergy. Some studies have also found that in non-allergic expecting mothers, eating peanuts while pregnant may reduce the risk of a peanut allergy for children.

Your wife didn't breastfeed until your daughter was 13 and it was trendy to do so. Doesn't count.
