Sony hackers demand 'The Interview' be scrapped

Sony hackers demand 'The Interview' be scrapped The group claiming responsibility for the massive Sony Pictures breach in November have demanded that the release film starring Seth Rogen and James France be cancelled
The Interview stars the pair as journalists who have been recruited by the CIA into a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. North Korea has condemned the movie as an act of war and of sponsoring terrorism, though North Korea has denied any involvement in the Sony hack.

Despite denying involvement, North Korea did describe the hacking and later leaking of massive amounts of data from the entertainment company as a "righteous deed."

A message from the group calling itself the Guardians of Peace has demanded that the film be dropped. "Stop immediately showing the movie of terrorism which can break the regional peace and cause the War," the demand reads. The group also denied that it sent e-mails to Sony Pictures employees last week threatening them and their families.

There are several reasons why security experts are looking Pyongyang as a possible source of the attack, which you can read about here.

Far from being put off by the North Korean link, Rogen and Franco have found the North Korean outrage and link to the attack amusing, appearing on Saturday Night Live to joke about it.

I hope this movie goes viral and free and worldwide so EVERYONE can get a laugh about this "war provoking" film. HA HA HA

Kim Jong Un and Il are plagues upon this planet and should sincerely be eradicated from existence.

There is not one reason to NOT exterminate N.Korean leaders.

Il and Un bring NOTHING of benefit to the world, nation, people in any way what-so-ever.

Frankly, moving S.Koreans, Chinese and all others near N.Korea out the the region a dropping a nuke on that country would be of most benefit to the world but too bad we're aren't going that route.

So you really believe that dropping the nuke on N.Korea will solve the problem. That is why some other countries want to have nuclear weapons to protect themselves from people like you who are looking for opportunities to use the nuke power. Not smart of you.

Wha?... seriously, how old are you?
You'd be wiped out by Russia and China in a matter of hours! LOL. What do you think China has been doing with all those 10's of Trillions of dollars they've made from you and the rest of the World over the last 4 decades? They have been VERY busy little beavers! Hell, even the Russians are in better shape than the US after they were forced to run down and update their own nuclear arsenal after the cold war and now tactical warheads come from 'below the waterline' and near impossible to defend against.
I mean think about it,.. North Korea is a Waaaaaay bigger threat than IRAN, IRAQ, SYRIA, LIBYA, etc, so why is it that neither the US or it's Allies have invaded NK?

This movie is going to make a LOT of money because of all this bull$hit hype, but make no mistake, it will be as bad, if not worse than Rogens' other collaborations....
