There's no other way to say it: The Sony Pictures hack was a terrorist attack. It was carried out by North Korea, furious over the new Seth Rogen and James Franco film "The Interview" - a comedy about assassinating North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-Un - that was set to be released on Christmas Day.
On top of releasing loads upon loads of personal information about top celebrities, the Guardians of Peace (#GOP) also released a grim warning to anyone headed to the theaters to see the movie on Christmas Day, threatening 9/11-style attacks.
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places "The Interview" be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.
Because 9/11 taps into a major anxiety among Americans, Sony has officially pulled the plug on the movie's release, and all major movie theaters chains - AMC Entertainment, Regal Entertainment, Cinemark, Carmike and Bow Tie Cinemas - have done the same.
