North Korea on Saturday lashed out at the U.S in another angry statement, accusing President Obama of breaking their internet earlier this week while at the same time again denying being responsible for the Sony Pictures hack.
‘Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,’ said a spokesman for the country’s ruling body, the National Defense Commission. ‘If the U.S. persists in American-style arrogant, high-handed and gangster-like arbitrary practices despite (North Korea’s) repeated warnings, the U.S. should bear in mind that its failed political affairs will face inescapable deadly blows.’
The statement also condemned the release of The Interview, describing the controversial comedy as a ‘dishonest and reactionary movie hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK [North Korea] and agitating terrorism.’
‘The prevailing situation clearly shows that the U.S. is adding to its crimes by screening the movie The Interview,’ the spokesman said. ‘With no rhetoric can the U.S. justify the screening and distribution of the movie.’
According to Chinese media reports, another internet blackout happened across the country hours after the statement was released.
