Obama: Sony Shoulda Asked Me What to Do!

0

President Barack Obama said Friday that Sony Pictures Entertainment “made a mistake” by nixing the release of a comedic film after the company was hacked and received cyber threats.

“Sony’s a corporation. It suffered significant damage. There were threats against some of its employees,” he said “I am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. Having said all that, yes, I think they made a mistake.”

 

 

In a year-end press conference, Obama said that he wishes Sony had spoken to him before deciding to back down on the film “The Interview,” which depicted a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. “I would have told them ‘Do not get into a pattern in which you’re intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks,'” he said.

“That’s not who we are,” he said. “That’s not what America’s about.”
