Peter Rabbit

Sony apologises over controversial scene in Peter Rabbit

The filmmakers of Peter Rabbit have apologised over a controversial scene in the new movie, which some viewers have claimed make light of the severity of food allergies.

In the scene, the character of Tom McGregor is attacked with fruit and vegetables by a group of animals.

Despite being aware of his allergy to blackberries, the animals sling-shot a blackberry into his mouth, causing Mr McGregor to struggle with an EpiPen and suffer anaphylaxis, as the animals cheer on.

The apology from Sony has come in response to various petitions and letters from allergy awareness groups all over the world.

An Australian allergy awareness group, Global Anaphylaxis Awareness and Inclusivity (Globalaai), was so outraged they started a petition calling for an official apology from the filmmakers.

In the US, Pennsylvania’s Kids With Food Allergies Foundation, a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America posted a warning about the scene which went viral on social media.

An open letter, penned by the president and chief executive of the foundation, Kenneth Mendez, reads;

“This isn’t the first time that Sony Pictures Animation has used food allergies as a punchline in the plot of a kids’ movie,” the letter explains, citing “The Smurfs” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” as examples.

“The segment makes light of the seriousness of food allergies and suggests that food allergies are “made up for attention”.

Sony Pictures responded to the feedback with a formal apology.

“Food allergies are a serious issue. Our film should not have made light of Peter Rabbit’s arch-nemesis, Mr. McGregor, being allergic to blackberries, even in a cartoonish, slapstick way,” the apology read.

“We sincerely regret not being more aware and sensitive to this issue, and we truly apologise.”

Kim Cattrall

“You are not my friend” Kim Cattrall criticises Sarah Jessica Parker in fiery Instagram post

ACTRESS Kim Cattrall has lashed out at her former Sex and the City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker in a fiery post on social media.

On Saturday morning, Cattrall took to her Instagram account accusing Parker of “exploiting” the recent death of her brother.

“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker” the 61-year-old posted.

“My Mom asked me today, ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.”

Cattrall continued her rant by clearly indicating the pair were ‘not friends’.

“Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”

She then linked to a story by the New York Post titled: “Inside the mean-girls culture that destroyed Sex and the City.”

It comes after Parker sent her condolences to Cattrall on Instagram.

“Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” Parker commented.
