North Korea is comparing President Barack Obama to a "monkey" for urging Sony to release The Interview.
According to The Associated Press, the country's Kim Jong Un-led National Defense Commission released a statement saying, "Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest." The group also blamed Washington for outages saying, "The U.S., a big country, started disturbing the Internet operation of major media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like children playing tag."
The White House has yet to respond.
Earlier this month, Obama said Sony "made a mistake" pulling The Interview amid threats of terrorism. Ultimately, the studio released it simultaneously in select theaters and on demand on Christmas Day. The film ended up making $1 million in its first day in theaters.
