North Korea Blames Obama For ‘The Interview’ Release, Calls Him A ‘Monkey’
Raking in $1 million dollars in theaters following its Christmas Eve release, The Interview continues to piss off North Korea. After Sony’s backtracking in its plan to halt the film following criticism from President Obama, North Korea’s National Defense Commission’s latest statement likens him to a “monkey.”
"Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest," it reads, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
After having denied involvement in the Sony hack, North Korea has remained vocal about its discontent of the film, which depicts the assassination of its leader Kim Jong Un. The country also now blames the United States for outages on North Korean websites this week.
"The U.S., a big country, started disturbing the Internet operation of major media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like children playing a tag,” the statement read.
The White House has yet to respond to North Korea’s latest statement.
