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."
