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.”

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.”

Seth Rogen Arrives at Sony Studios After Defending 'The Interview' on 'The Colbert Report' (Video)

Seth Rogen makes his way out of a car while arriving at Sony Pictures Studios with a bodyguard on Thursday (December 18) in Culver City, Calif.

That same day, the 32-year-old actor’s pal and Interview costar James Franco was spotted leaving the New Museum on the Bowery before heading to the Park Avenue Armory with friends in New York City.

“We did not think [North Korea] would love the concept of the movie to be totally honest,” Seth recently said on The Colbert Report before the movie and press tour was cancelled. “But more than anything we wanted to make a movie that had one foot in reality. That’s something we as filmmakers like and think is interesting as audience members as well.”

He continued, “I personally think it is appropriate to make jokes about real things. We thought maybe we could inject some slight relevance.”

White House Says Sony Hack Is a 'Serious National Security Matter'

The White House is commenting on the massive Sony hack that has been going on for weeks, calling it a “serious national security matter.”

“[This is] consistent with how will we protect against, monitor and respond to cyber-incidents. This is something that is being treated as a serious national security matter,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said on Thursday (December 18), via Variety.

“We’re calling on Congress to act on cyber security. This is not the sort of topic that should allow us to be divided on party lines,” he added. He also commented on what the White House will do about the situation regarding North Korea: “There are a range of options under consideration right now I’m not going to speculate on which options might work best.”

As a result of the massive Sony hack and a terrorist threat that came through, The Interview was pulled from theaters.
