North Korea on Saturday called US President Barack Obama, “monkey”, accusing him of inciting to show the film “The Interview” about fictional death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and threatened with an “irreparable crushing blow”.
“Obama with the face of a monkey that lives in the rainforests is always indiscreet in words and actions,” said NDC Policy department spokesman, in a statement released by the North’s official news agency KCNA.
The North Korean National Defense Commission (NDC) also accused the United States of disrupting the operation of internet media in North Korea.
The country suffered blackouts internet this week, prompting speculation about a cyber attack launched by US authorities in response to cyber attacks against Sony Pictures that Washington blamed on Pyongyang.
The CND accused Obama of motivating the screening of “The Interview” during Christmas day, which Sony had initially canceled its distribution after threats by hackers against viewers.
