Why are mom’s using the hashtag “boycott Peter Rabbit”? “Peter Rabbit” filmmakers and the studio behind it are apologizing for making light of a character’s allergy in the film. 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. 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.”
