A North Korean spokesperson said, “[this] shows the desperation of the US government and American society.” He’s referring to James Franco and Seth Rogen’s new movie, The Interview. He added: A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the US has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine. And let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans.”
The basic premise of The Interview is that Franco and Rogen attempt to assassinate North Korea’s dear leader, Kim Jong Un. (Although, wouldn’t Americans feel offended if say, Iraq made a movie about assassinating our president?)
The North Koreans didn’t take too kindly to this “insult” and so, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un condemned Franco and Rogen for making this movie.
Rogen Tweeted about the condemnation, and was light-hearted about the situation.
Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!! http://t.co/5VrsgYlydE
