Sony “Un” Done
Leave it to Hollywood to assume that they can make a film depicting the assassination of the world’s most vicious dictator and that he wouldÂ happily go along with it, perhaps in the spirit of Christmas.
North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un,Â gastric-banded dictator and cheese fanatic, is reportedly behind the hacking of Sony’s IT system resulting in the involuntary disclosure of emails best described as bitchy as studio bosses are caught saying some most unsavory things.
With all the howling you’d think Kim launched one of those 1950’s missiles of his.
This is better than that.
Everyone from goddessÂ Angelina Jolie to President Obama comes in for a little movie mogulÂ abuse.
“Minimally talented spoiled brat”, she’s called, while the Bam is the subject of bigoted comments about his assumedÂ preference for slave related, lusty cinematography.
Having been upstaged by the “dear leader” theÂ “talent” then compare the disclosure of their mindless prattle as another September 11th.
Ah, theÂ hubris of Hollywood.
Yesterday it was reported that the “entertainment industry” was pulling the movie from its opening over threats of violence.
Of course, the perpetrators of threats of violence should be tracked down and prosecuted though it’s doubtful that it’s Kim.
His gambit was far more subtle and effective; fairly deft for a rascal.
This affair is neither about terrorism nor security and it’s made even funnier by our government’s apparent outrage on Hollywood’s behalf as they hack our email every day and call it patriotic.
I call Kim’s play clever, ironic and what you can expect when tyrants (in L.A. and Pyongyang) get together.
The net effect, one way or the other, is that a movie will not be shown that should never have been made.
I guess we can thank Kim for that.
