I am sure the blog-o-sphere is blowing up over this whole thing, and rightly so! Us little guys have to hold onto the free speech we all love so much!
The fact that Sony is not releasing the movie “The Interview” is proof that we all take ourselves way too serious. We’re not talking about some sort of revealing, tell all documentary… It’s a goofball comedy with Seth Rogan and James Franco!! The same two guys in Pineapple Express!! (Which is a VERY funny movie, BTW.)
And the teletubbie dictator in South Korea is behind all this?! It is ALL such a farce. How do you take anyone with THAT haircut serious?! Yes, he is a nut that has done some awful things, but come on! In the meeting where Sony decides to pull the movie, you KNOW they’re also saying, “We’ll put out the DVD and it’ll make MORE money! (insert maniacal laugh here)”
I agree with those people saying that this is an awful precedent to set and that the concept of free speech should not be compromised. So what happens next? SNL skits get yanked? Comic books pulled off shelves? LIGHTEN UP PEOPLE!!
Personally I think it’s a couple of teenagers in Des Moines that hacked Sony and they’re laughing at the rest of the world.
What if I do a cartoon of me shooting an arrow through his head? Will he come after me? Will the Secret Service show up at my door? If you don’t hear from me for a few days… send the Marines.
