“I thought we all did a really good job of preemptively telling the press that if you publish these things, you’re being sleazy,” the 53-year-old writer/producer said on The Today Show on Tuesday (December 16). “This is the exact same situation, only worse by magnitudes because in this case the hackers stole this material and are threatening the lives of children.”
“The thing we should be taking seriously first and foremost is privacy and dignity,” Aaron added, “and the fact that once again hackers who have threatened violence because the studio just wants to exercise the same First Amendment right that everybody else does, studio just wants to release a movie, have stolen this material and now the press is selling it out of the back of a truck.”
Aaron also wrote an op-ed piece for the New York Times condemning media for publishing the stolen documents.
