peter rabbit still

A new Peter Rabbit film is almost upon us - and it’s causing controversy.

Surprisingly, not because of the decision to turn Beatrix Potter’s bunny into a swaggering pillock voiced by (shudder) James Corden. No, instead it’s a scene in which Peter and his cabal pelt Mr McGregor with blackberries.

Standard japes, you’d think, except the vermin are doing it to aggravate Mr M’s allergy! The poor chap needs an epi-pen to remedy his anaphylaxis. Producer Sony has apologised but calls for a boycott remain. Seems as good a reason as any…
