Peter Rab­bit team is­sues an apol­ogy

Ottawa Citizen - - YOU -

Peter Rab­bit film­mak­ers and its stu­dio are apol­o­giz­ing for in­sen­si­tively de­pict­ing a char­ac­ter’s al­lergy in the film that has prompted a back­lash on­line. Sony Pic­tures and the film­mak­ers say “food allergies are a se­ri­ous is­sue” and the film “should not have made light” of a char­ac­ter be­ing al­ler­gic to black­ber­ries. The rab­bits fling the fruit at Mr. McGre­gor (Domh­nall Glee­son) and he is forced to use an EpiPen.
