Sean Penn Slams Sony For Pulling the Plug on 'The Interview'

Sean Penn is not happy about Sony’s decision to stop the release of The Interview after threats from Sony hackers.

“This week, the distributors who wouldn’t show The Interview and Sony have sent ISIS a commanding invitation. I believe ISIS will accept the invitation. Pandora’s box is officially open,” the 54-year-old actor said in a statement.

Sean added, “The damage we do to ourselves typically outweighs the harm caused by outside threats or actions. Then by caving to the outside threat, we make our nightmares real. The decision to pull The Interview is historic. It’s a case of putting short term interests ahead of the long term. If we don’t get the world on board to see that this is a game changer, if this hacking doesn’t frighten the Chinese and the Russians, we’re in for a very different world, a very different country, community, and a very different culture.”

    Well I guess Clooney did not ask Penn to sign the petition or Penn did not want to do it with Clooney. I can understand because Clooney is making it all about how great a human being he is.
