North Korea blasts Barack Obama over movie release

NORTH Korea have thrown insults at US President Barack Obama, calling him a “monkey”.

The slur was made against Mr Obama for encouraging cinemas to screen a movie which features a fictional plot to kill North Korea’s leader.

‘The Interview’ has been well received by viewers, and paints Kim Jong Un in a particularly unfavourable light.


Analysts say North Korea could see the movie as a risk to it’s domestic political stability, particularly if the movie enters the country via USB sticks.

It comes as North Korea has experienced yet another internet shutdown, which it blames the Americans for.
