|I hold in my hand the list of things that I approve of. It is short.|
Today, the country doubled down on their dislike for the film, giving a much more strongly worded review.
A spokesman for the country's foreign ministry said that releasing the film would be "an act of war" on the part of the U.S. The spokesman also claimed that the DPRK would take "stern" and "merciless" retaliation if it is not banned, the Associated Press reports. Now that's the North Korea we all know.
From the unnamed spokesman's statement:
In a statement carried by North Korea's official KCNA news agency, a foreign ministry spokesman said the film was the work of "gangster moviemakers" and should never be shown.
"The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership... is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable," the spokesman said.
In his statement, he called on the US administration to ban the film from being screened and warned that failure to do so would trigger a "resolute and merciless response."
I really hope nobody in the DPRK sees this anytime soon:
Then they will be really mad.
