It's Steve PX line with Carter a Korea and honey PX lies great James Whitney Young in the studio with me this morning hey you can get ready fired up. During the volatile. Brady's receivers gotta get anger you might call the low outrage I'm genuinely outraged now. Purely outraged at this children's movie called Peter Rabbit. And it's important ocean land around him. I didn't see these incredibly sad I just need to keep wildlife outs where they belong instead yeah. It's a coupled with them angels this is that place. Forget these different but it won't play out this. He's got to go. Yeah. These studies is so classic. Tour yeah. I just wanna know why. Line one why they had to take this perfectly. Good in fuel or harmless children's movie yeah welcome Andrew and. And it Dave provided this movie that may 25 million dollars of the weekend about elect and that it was the biggest. Movie from the weekend but yet people are upset. People other torches they have their pitchforks they are ready to do battle there's actually a boycott being called for now. And it's only rolled over once seen one seen the little offensive well for people as bad if they say that. It encourages allergy bullying. And not just any allergy. Food allergies allergy is all the ones seen from this movie so apparently in the movie a group of Raddatz. Are throwing blackberries at the character of this or who is allergic to tell truth. Okay well you say it like that you know when you say that. What happens. I don't know how to use it Whitney let me tell. Everybody what really happened okay Sharia as the recent movement. Me. I mean I I just don't think. It's I think it's in port taste. In children's movie that is otherwise harmless and and nice and all of that. You were character is being bullied. Or having a food allergy and is in the midst. Can't galactic shock and your whole life threatening he now it's as if that's privatizing an optimum. Why is it funny to make fun of that why is it why is bullying a punch line in this I don't get it. This is best team Whitney. Ng cartoons. Forever. Pretty much forever Vick back Alley about this for a second about the cartoons we grow up quit or the cartoons before us think loony tunes that says this is example. This thing happen in there. If it was today if those were new rule. He'll be coming out public works say that coyotes need to be treated better because they didn't put stuff list. You'd think that more tallies were injured because of the cartoon. Like this is just how this works you do you really think that's going to be a problem that's gonna make. I saw them there Greg blackberries and mr. Greg Orton had to stand up and happy and volatile as I would that's my friends in the draw. You're basing your argument on the past and history right. Tapes as people. We go back and Kate you re not evolved because that's what we used to do based argument out. Still yes stick on the offensive there are a lot of things to be upset about. But this is one of them it's not funny I don't think bullying is a punch line I think it's wrong and I also. As somebody who has a very real fear of an eclectic shocks. This really hits home for me to you geographic penalties against no I don't which means I mean even pretty. It's content should be careful. About that Sony has apologized. Saying food allergies are serious issue that's right mission not a made light of them yeah even in a cartoonish. Slapstick way that you are.

Conversations but their kids when you saw that movie you can talk about the that incident you could say no little building little chilly know it's not allocated to that he's teaching moments with people are saying that should be a boycott it. They are there are running away from what the problem it's the fact that we don't talk to our kids enough how I use that at all. If you wanna the negative blood and at. Let's gets.
