The President has spoken.
President Barack Obama has given his take on Sony pulling The Interview movie from theaters. He stated: “I am sympathetic to the concerns that they face. Having said all that, yes, I think they made a mistake, Let’s not get into that way of doing business.”
He also added: “We cannot have a society in which some dictators some place can start imposing censorship here in the united states because if somebody is able to intimidate us out of releasing a satirical movie. Imagine what they start doing once they see a documentary that they don’t like or news reports that they don’t like, That’s not who we are. That’s not what America is about.”
Hours before, the FBI announced North Korea is officially responsible for the cyberattack on Sony Pictures, an attack law enforcement officials called a “game changer.”
Sony and major movie theater outlets such as AMC and Regal Entertainments pulled the movie due to the hacking threat. The Interview stars James Franco and Seth Rogan deals with North Korea and dictator Kim Jong Un.
