North Korea racist comments referred to Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America as a "monkey in a tropical forest." Plus, apart from submitting to racism to describe the US leader, the foreign nation also blamed the administration for disrupting its Internet access amid a hacking dispute regarding "The Interview."
The Government of North Korea has been strongly critical of the controversial comedy. "The Interview" was about a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Although this is true, they have adamantly denied that they were responsible for a recent cyber-attack against Sony Pictures.
The studio initially decided to cancel the public release of "The Interview" because of reported threats of terrorist attacks from hackers. Plus, large cinemas were also terrified and refused to screen the film.
However, after Obama criticized Sony for giving in to North Korea's alleged demands, they suddenly changed their minds and released "The Interview" on Christmas Day in selected independent theaters. The film premiered in sold-out cinemas and earned almost $1 million on its first day ticket sales.
The National Defense Commission, the ruling body of North Korea, said in a statement, which they released on Saturday, that Obama was "the chief culprit" in the release of the film. An unnamed spokesperson spewed some North Korea racist comments through KCNA and said, "Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest."
It might be shocking for some people, but this is actually not the first time that the Asian country gave some North Korea racist comments regarding Obama. Just this past May, the official news agency of North Korea referred to Obama as a "crossbreed" and "a wicked black monkey." They also referred to Park Geun-Hye, the President of South Korea, as "an old prostitute."
