  1. As the father of a child with a peanut allergy, I find today’s comic to be insensitive and dangerous. My son reads the comics daily and today I want to hide them from him. It makes it seem like his allergy is a joke. Anyone who knows what the smallest amount of peanuts can do to an allergic person can do would never take the allergy lightly. On top of that, other children and adults might not take the allergy seriously after reading this comic and that could lead to them not being careful around those with the allergy. Peanut allergies can kill and yet you treat it like a joke.

  2. I could not believe that Chris Browne and so many editors would allow the printing of Hagar on March 4, 2018. Hagar promotes killing a person by using peanut butter. Hagar knowingly spreads peanut butter to bring on an allergic response that would cause death. Unfortunately this is NOT comedy nor is it funny to anyone that has a severe allergic reaction. Recently in Pennsylvania, teen girls did the same thing to a classmate. The girl with the allergy was hospitalized in critical condition.
    I am really shocked that this comic was 1. Even thought of, 2. Went through several editors 3. Wasn’t stopped anywhere along the process. I hope Chris Browne and King Features Syndicate prints a retraction.

  3. My daughter is allergic to peanuts and I am not impressed that Chris Browne and King Features Syndicate find it humorous to council anyone to kill someone like this.
    Statics indicate that 1 in 12 children have a food allergy. That’s an average of 2 in every classroom.
    Severe food allergies are classified as a very real disability and protected thru the ADA. Would you make fun of cancer or diabetes like this?
    Please print a retraction.

  4. As the mother of a peanut and tree nut allergic son this turns my stomach. Kids read comics. Bullying happens. The fact that you can be so irresponsible and print this in 2018 is shameful. Print a retraction before this seriously hurts someone.

  5. What is wrong with you? Seriously? What is wrong. Clearly you do not have a child with a peanut allergy. This is unacceptable. This is thoughtless and irresponsible and I hope you are held liable for promoting such garbage.

  6. How disappointing and disgusting that this comic made it to print. Food bullying of allergic individuals is a REAL issue. Being exposed to your allergen (in trace amounts, if you touch it, ingest it, breathe it in) can KILL an allergic individual. Shame on you.

  7. Aside from the insensitive anaphylaxis joke (no theoretical Attillas came anywhere near harm in the making of this strip), the knuckleheaded plot and bungling execution in this strip had me laughing for hours. I think Eddy’s crossword puzzle in the excluded preceding panels definitely help the humor.

  8. As a mother of a child with food allergies, I find Sunday’s comic highly offensive. Not at all funny to use a disability as the punchline.

  9. I’m in agreement with all of the above. Having 2 peanut allergic kids, this is incredibly unfunny. You wouldn’t want to live with this serious health problem and you wouldn’t like someone making light of it, nor giving dangerous ideas to some idiot. Please give a thought to what you put out there.

  10. I know many people have talked about this before, but this comic is not okay. My sister has a severe peanut allergy, and this is not helping. Promoting food allergies as a way to take down your enemies is a horrible way to amuse the public. I hope whoever is re-running this comic is deeply ashamed for their terrible actions
