The Internet is outraged, but this time it's surprisedly over a children's film. Upset parents are boycotting "Peter Rabbit," claiming the film encourages kids to bully people with food allergies due to a scene that mocks the antagonist's food allergy to blackberries. Sony issued an apology. Detractors argue the real dangers are hypersensitivity, overreaction and "cancel culture." Others say parents should teach their kids not to bully rather than boycott a children's film. What do you think?

Parents and health advocates say anaphylaxis kills, and kids will get the wrong messaging from "Peter Rabbit" to bully kids with food allergies. Some of the characters make fun of a character with a berry allergy.

But critics are rolling their eyes. They say the Internet is literally outraged about everything these days, which may hurt certain causes that need advocacy. 

Some detractors say it's a children's film with CGI animation and it's a parent's job to teach their kids about bullying!
