Sony Hackers Threaten Attack on Theaters That Show “The Interview”


The Sony hackers– and who knows who they really are– are now threatening to attack the theaters where “The Interview” is shown. The Warning went out this morning as part of another data dump. Where were these people for “Team America” or the other cultural references to the North Korean government? Anyway, the entire data dump has now prompted the first class action lawsuit against Sony by former employees over identity theft. The whole episode seems designed to bring down Sony Pictures entirely regardless of one witless 90 minute comedy. The wording here also seems like intentional broken English.

Here’s the latest:



We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.
