During a recent interview with Howard Stern, Seth Rogen has criticized the media for publishing the email messages that have been leaking from top Sony Picture executives.
Rogen and his co-star James Franco made jokes about the scandal on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, but since, Rogen has began criticizing the media for picking through all of the material the hackers have leaked so far, which includes salary details for The Interview duo. Also being discussed in the leaked emails is Rogen’s refusal to alter a key scene in which the North Korean dictator is struck by a tank shell.
Rogen recently spoke with Howard Stern saying, “It’s stolen information… I think it’s f**ked up that anyone is talking about it. And I’m OK talking about my s**t, honestly, because I don’t f**king care that much, and the stuff that was stolen from me on the grand scale of s**t is not that bad, but it’s f**king stolen. I do think it’s f**ked up that everyone is doing exactly what these criminals want…
“All of this information would literally just be sitting on some obscure corner of the Internet if it wasn’t for these news articles exposing the information…
“I can’t believe people are just so happy be like, ‘Look at this stolen information. Hey, let’s f**king read it.’ (The email authors) are not doing anything illegal. They’re not trying to fool you as the consumer. They’re having private correspondence with one another.”
Activists calling themselves the Guardians of Peace have threatened to continue hacking into Sony’s computers and releasing stolen files featuring celebrities’ salaries and personal information and whole movies unless studio bosses scrap plans to release Rogen’s new movie The Interview, about a TV presenter and a sidekick who set out on a mission to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
