After hackers threatened a “9/11 style” attack against the The Interview premiere, the movie’s stars have cancelled their press tour.
The movie is a comedy about a pair of journalists who are enlisted by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jung-un.
The duo cancelled appearances on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Watch What Happens Live,” a Yahoo interview, and a Buzzfeed Brews event in New York on Tuesday that was cancelled just a few hours before it was supposed to take place.
“The world will be full of fear,” states the scary message. “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.”
North Korea is thought to be behind the attack because of the movie’s subject matter, but they have denied any involvement in the attacks but said the hack was “righteous deed.”
