Kiwi Kiddie Show ‘What Now’ Under Fire For Peanut Allergy Prank

Quote:
hildren’s show “What Now” is under fire for allegedly not taking allergy awareness seriously. The long-time program featured a segment wherein presenter Adam Percival was pretending to have a nut allergy only to have his face covered in peanut butter on Sunday

During a segment of the TV2 kiddie morning show about allergies, Adam pretended to have a nut allergy while his face was covered in peanut butter.

Some parents of the show’s viewers were outraged with the “irresponsible” segment. Although Adam really didn’t have a nut allergy, his being covered in peanut butter has been deemed dangerous because children might imitate the prank to others who truly have allergic reactions to nuts.

That makes my skin crawl knowing what that a "May contain tree nuts" sent my child into anaphylaxis.
