those concerns. >> reporter: why do you think people have those concerns? >> some say the story that was out. some say the people i carry, but i think it's no such thing. you can't judge a book by its cover. >> if you're looking for precedents on how the 49s are might handle this, consider former corner back tramaine brock arrested in april for domestic violence, was released by the 49ers the following day. charges were dropped and in 2014 chargers cut ray mcdonald following a sexual assault investigation. he was a no. 1 draft pick, the second of two no. 1s for the 49ers. he is their most talented defensive player. >> there were some red flags early on by other teams who passed him up. >> yeah. he had injury concerns regarding his shoulder and the character issues go back a long

>> reporter: terry knows all about food allergy bullying. >> my allergy to corn is not a very common 1, but i do know other people that are allergic to corn. i really like corn. it's hard. other people that eat corn sometimes make fun of me and eat it in my face to make me feel bad, but very other friends who have the same experience with weird allergies. >> reporter: because of the backlash sony pictures and the filmmakers issued this apology. "food allergies are a serious issue. our film should not have made light of peter rabbit's arch nemesis mr. mcgregor being allergic to blackberries even in a cartoonish slapstick way," but still some people say it's just a kids film. >> i think it's a little ridiculous to be that sensitive about it. i think it's just part of a movie. i don't think they're trying to make fun of anyone. >> you can't do anything without somebody -- there's always somebody you're going to offend. it just gets worse and worse and worse. so i think it's ridiculous. it's a kids movie, for god's sake. just let them be kids.
