To add to the world's tumult, the North Korean government threatened military action last month over an upcoming Seth Rogen and James Franco movie. It's about television personalities recruited to assassinate Kim Jong Un during an interview. Recently, Pyongyang wrote a letter of complaint to the White House requesting that the movie, which they deemed to be "an act of war," be shut down.
While this seems in keeping with Kim Jong Un's usual antics, he isn’t the only dictator to throw this kind of tantrum.
Remember Manuel Noriega, the former Panamanian strongman? He's suing the makers of the videogame "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" from his Panamanian prison cell.
Noriega alleges in his lawsuit that the game portrays him as "a kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state." Perhaps the videogame designers should have had his character stick to drug trafficking, racketeering and money laundering – crimes he was convicted of in the United States and France.
Oh, and he was also convicted of murder in Panama.
One would think Kim Jong Un has more important things to worry about than Hollywood comedies. We guess Noriega in his prison cell has more time on his hands.
Ruffled Kim Jong Un's feathers? Lol aww...big fat furry deal!
And he threatened military action too??? Oh my! And so what...its not like we havent heard that useless threat from him before lol! Many times in fact! Again...big fat furry deal!
god forbid hollywood makes a movie about obama and his use of drones, or even worse israel's killing of 161 children to date in gaza.
Maybe Hollywood should make a movie about HAMAS sending MORE THAN 2000 ROCKETS into your country and your country doing NOTHING about it.
