It’s a sad day for North Korea.
James Franco and Seth Rogen, the two beautiful men behind the movies Pineapple Express and This is the End have been condemned by North Korea. And no, it isn’t because of that Kanye West music video they parodied.
Instead, the two stars teamed up for a movie called The Interview, where they play two celebrity journalists that somehow manage to land an interview with Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea. The US government hears of this, and asks Franco and Rogen to assassinate the North Korean dictator.
You can probably imagine why North Korea isn’t too happy about the plot of this movie. An official spokesman for Kim Jong Un stated that:
“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society,”
Surprisingly, the sound of our freedom didn’t drown out the North Koreans statement. And, despite the controversy, Kim Jong Un stated that he is planning on watching the movie anyway.
How can you not watch a movie about Seth Rogen and James Franco trying to kill you?
