North Korea Uses Racial Slur Against Barack Obama & Blames U.S. For Internet Outage

North Korea is blaming the United States for shutting down the country’s internet and criticizing President Barack Obama for encouraging the Christmas release of The Interview following the cancellation of the movie.

Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” a spokesman from the National Defense Commission, North Korea’s top governing body led by Kim Jong-un, said in a statement.

The spokesperson added, “The U.S., a big country, started disturbing the Internet operation of major media of the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), not knowing shame like children playing a tag.”

North Korea has already faced two internet outages in the last week.

The girls had exhibited a Lego flood proof bridge project.”

“You don’t put stuff on your head if you’re president,” Obama said last year when he was offered a helmet during an Air Force visit. Looks like he made an exception for the girls!

President Obama Applauds Sony's Decision to Allow 'The Interview' to Play - Read the Statement

President Barack Obama and the White House have released a statement after Sony decided to let independent movie houses screen The Interview.

“The President applauds Sony’s decision to authorize screenings of the film. As the President made clear, we are a country that believes in free speech, and the right of artistic expression. The decision made by Sony and participating theaters allows people to make their own choices about the film, and we welcome that outcome,” the statement from White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz read (via The Wrap).

It was announced earlier in the day that select theaters will be playing The Interview after the movie was pulled due to terror threats.

James Flacco: Obama Slips Up on James Franco's Name (Video)

If you were watching President Obama‘s year end press conference, you may have noticed his slip up on James Franco‘s name when talking about the movie The Interview and the Sony hack scandal.

“I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco,” the president said. “I love Seth and I love James, but the notion that that was a threat to them I think gives you some sense of the kind of regime we’re talking about here.”

We have a feeling that Obama might have been confusing James with the Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco! Watch the video from the press conference below:

Sony CEO Responds to Obama, Hits Back at President's Comments

Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton breaks his silence to address President Obama‘s comments about the studio’s decision to cancel the release of The Interview.

“We have not caved, we have not given in, we have not backed down,” the 54-year-old Sony exec shared to CNN.

He added, “I think the unfortunate part is… The President, the press, and the public are mistaken as to what actually happened. We do not own movie theaters. We cannot decide what will be played in movie theaters.”
