Kim Jong Un Complains to U.N. About Seth Rogen and James Franco's Movie
Kim Jong Un files U.N. complaint over Hollywood comedy "The Interview". The film which is due October 10 this year stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as a talk show host and his producer. They are heading to North Korea and plotting to kill the country's leader.
In a letter sent by North Korea's Ambassador for the United Nations, Ja Song Nam, to the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the Asian country, without mentioning the title of the film, expresses displeasure over a plot that "involves insulting and assassinating the supreme leadership."
"To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war," Ja said in a statement.
"The United States authorities should take immediate and appropriate actions to ban the production and distribution of the aforementioned film; otherwise, it will be fully responsible for encouraging and sponsoring terrorism," he added.
