Studios and Theaters Cowards, Bow To Fear of North Korea
LA Weekly has a wonderful piece by Amy Nicholson, Pulling The Interview Is the End of Free Speech in Hollywood. We at TTDILA couldn't agree more with her thoughts on the matter. This shows just how cowardly both the studios and major theater chains are in America. Having no backbone for free speech they have folded under threats that are own government doesn't take seriously. Instead of standing together and saying we won't let anyone take away our freedom to show whatever movies we want, no matter how mediocre they are, they gave up.
We would like to see the theater chains and studios come together and let the movie play. Letting fear, fear of the unknown control what we can or cannot do is not the American way. This may seem like a tiny thing, a tiny thing about a stupid comedy. You could just shake it off as that. It's not though, it's showing that America can be controlled by fear. When America is controlled by fear that's not an America making right choices or doing what's right. Stand up Sony!
